Expert Betting Tips
At this stage of the season, Southampton looks like the better side. Hasenhüttl's side has scored 11 points in their last five EPL games, with only Newcastle United's performing in that period better. The Saints are now in great form and will try to extend their winning streak in away games against Aston Villa. Gerrard's team will have to try hard to contain their opponents. For the upcoming meeting, we suggest considering total overs and many corner kicks.
