Norwich vs Southampton by Marcelino
Southampton have been very inconsistent. They had a lot of expectation behind them after a great season last season, but they disappointed. I think they are overrated at the moment because of their trashing of Arsenal, a team they historically have a great record against. However, that was their only win in their last 8 matches. They are only 4 points above Norwich.
The odds favour Southampton but I don't think they will win here. They only have 2 away wins all season in 9 matches, getting a lucky win away to Chelsea in the midst of their crisis and a 1-0 win thanks to a penalty away to 2nd bottom Sunderland. On the other hand, Norwich at home are unbeaten in their last 4 matches, including a draw 1-1 vs Arsenal and Everton and wins over Villa and Swansea. So the odds on Southampton are too low to back them. But Southampton did draw 4 of their 9 away games, and with very little between the 2 teams, I will go for a draw here, as both teams will be happy with that result.
