After a frustrating loss to Chelsea in the English League Cup, Southampton played on the road against Watford. Ralph Hasenhüttl's team managed to show a confident game and scored one unanswered goal. For Southampton it was only the second victory in the current English Premier League season. With 11 points the Saints are in 14th place in the EPL table.

Expert Betting Tips
I expect a very active game performed by Aston Villa players. The Birmingham club started the current season well but then lost their best form. The Lions intend to break the streak of no points. The last games with Aston Villa’s participation were high-scoring. I believe that at the St. Mary's Stadium this series will continue. My main prediction for the upcoming game - total over 2.5 goals. Also i suggest betting on total over corners.
- TO 2.5 goals for 1.90;
- TO 10 corners for 1.75;
- Aston Villa TO 5 corners for 2.40
