Prediction League: Watford away

Everyone was wrong last week as the toffees impressed and the saints continued to struggle to find last year's form. Someone will pick up points this week as Koeman's men try to turn around some woeful away form.

Last weeks optimism was misplaced. We bore witness to the Lukaku that destroyed us in a West Brom shirt whilst our backline reverted to the manic, paniced defending that we were accustomed to seeing under Adkins.

The bookies have spoken, and it is a resounding ¯\_(ツ)_/¯. Neither team is favourite. 15/8 for a home or away win. 23/10 for the draw.

To the predictions and with everyone going for a saints win last week I get to just copy and paste last weeks table:

WRITER POINTS
Jake 1
Merse 1
Connor 0
Dan 0
George 0
Lawro 0
Will 0

To the predictions:

Lawro: 1-2

"Saints are one of the better sides in the Premier League and I do not see them coming unstuck two weeks running."

Dirty Skate: 1-1

"I think it will be another draw for Watford, which will be a good result. If you had asked me last week before Saints lost, I would have gone for Southampton, but that loss to Everton has to knock the stuffing out of them a bit"

Jake: 0-1

"A hard-fought win as the Saints backline proves to be a bit tougher following on from their showing against Everton. Saints grab their goal with 20 minutes left to play during a back-and-forth contest."

Dan: 0-2

"2-0 win gives Saints their buzz back as they outclass the opposition."

Will: 2-1

"Don't call it a europa hangover. Its just a saints team that have been in relegation form on their travels for months coming up against a team fielding a solid midfield and a scary strike force."

Conor: 1-2

"Saints to slog their way to a 2-1 win"

George: 1-2

"Southampton go 2-0 up before Watford make it a nervy finish."

Rules are one point for a correct result, three for a correct score.
