Southampton – Huddersfield Town
Southampton hosts Huddersfield Town in a game from the last 38th round of the English Premier League. Here are our thoughts about this game at the St. Mary’s Stadium.
The good news for Southampton are that they managed to keep their place in the league. Right now they are 16th in the league with 38 points and they are now completely safe from relegation. Their record in the league so far looks like this: 9 wins, 11 draws and 17 defeats. It was not the best possible season for the Saints, but the most important thing is that they achieved their goal to keep their place in the league.
Southampton are without a win in their last four games, winning only two points from them. In their last game they visited West Ham United in London and suffered a heavy 0-3 defeat. Before this, Southampton made two consecutive draws against Watford and Bournemouth.
In the same time Huddersfield Town are preparing themselves for the next season in the Championship. They are the weakest team in the league and they will finish 20th in the league. In 37 games played in the league so far, Huddersfield managed to win just 15 points, winning just 3 games. In their last five games Huddersfield suffered four defeats and only won a point against Manchester United in the previous round.
For Huddersfield it was a positive experience against Manchester United at the John Smith’s Stadium. The game against the Red Devils ended with a 1-1 draw. Scott McTominay opened the score for the visitors, but Huddersfield equalised with a goal from Isaac Mbenza after an hour of playing.
That’s our thoughts about the Premier League fixture between Southampton and Huddersfield Town on Sunday afternoon. For both teams this is pretty much a pointless game, but they will try to end their seasons on a positive note.
