Southampton stays above EPL drop zone, Stoke still there

Southampton stays above EPL drop zone, Stoke still there

The only other concern is striker Charlie Austin whose not expected to return to first-team action until the end of March, after the worldwide break later this month.

Southampton have doubts over Shane Long and Steven Davis ahead of their Premier League clash with Stoke.

Look at the table and three points takes you to 13th I think.

"I think too much in the first part of the season we hadn't hit heights in terms of running stats, in terms of winning tackles and 50-50's, we're always on the losing side and that was happening too often". "We lost Mame and that was a blow because I thought he started the game well. We've only been beaten once in six games".

"With Joe [Hart] not playing at the moment it's kind of opened the door a little bit, he's still an incredible keeper and England's number one, but for the others its an opportunity for other players to show what they're about and try and stake a claim for the number one spot".

The Premier League match between Southampton and Stoke will be broadcast online.

Stoke travel to 16th-placed Southampton on Saturday.

Lambert inherited the most porous defence in Europe's top five leagues, but his side kept their first away clean sheet in 10 games to deny the Saints a first home win since November.

The reverse fixture earlier in the season ended with the Potters taking all three points after a late Peter Crouch victor gave them a 2-1 win.

20-year-old Josh Sims shone a light above anyone else in the Saints' draw at Turf Moor against Burnley last weekend, coming on as a substitute on his comeback from a long-term layoff in the treatment room, and supporters will be eager to see the midfielder's name on the team sheet this Saturday.

Stoke have won just once in nine Premier League games (D4, L4).

They have the joint-worst away record, alongside West Brom, with seven points and only one victory.

No top-flight team has leaked in as many goals as Stoke (54). He is now level with Jonathan Walters on 43 goals.
