these are 2 pretty good defensive sides so this should be a tight low scoring game.
i have seen quite a lot of southampton this season and i have to say they are quite boring and negative. the new manager has changed the style slightly with much more focus on keeping the ball but also making sure the side is solid at the back. its worked i suppose as they aint been losing many goals and that was a terrific result at liverpool which was more than well deserved.
swans are a terrific passing side we seen just how strong the club is now as they went to spain and won easily at valencia. its a great story not just the fact the club climbed the league all the way from the bottom to the top, but also the fact its been done playing such terrific football. its almost a foreign style which has caught out so many typical uk sides. its going to be interesting to see just how far the welsh club goes in the europa, i wouldnt rule them out of winning it.
every one of southamptons games this season have ended under, most of them have been pretty awful to watch the west ham game was a nightmare match with so few chances, swansea are a better team to watch but do play a little more negative on the road, so thats why i go for a low scoring game i dont really like early kick offs either i think that often makes games a bit slower and the crowd much quieter.
under 2.5 with coral at evens.
