Southampton have certainly been one thing this season—inconsistent. A dominant 3-1 win away at Bournemouth was followed by a disappointing 4-1 home loss to former Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino's Tottenham Hotspur on Wednesday evening.

On New Year's Eve, Claude Puel's men are hoping to get over that defeat as they welcome Tony Pulis' West Bromwich Albion to St. Mary's.

Southampton are without Nathan Redmond, who is suspended following his red card against Tottenham. Meanwhile, the injured trio of Charlie Austin, Jordy Clasie and Matt Targett remain on the sidelines.

Pulis may welcome back Jonny Evans to his Baggies side as he has been training despite a minor thigh injury. However, he is certainly missing striker Saido Berahino who is on an intensive camp to help regain match fitness.


Stats Zone:

Southampton have only lost once at home to West Brom since 1969—winning twelve and drawing eight. That loss came in a 3-0 defeat to Romelu Lukaku's goals in 2013.

Eight of 12 Premier League fixtures between the two sides have produced one goal or fewer. Snore.

Southampton have failed to win their final league game of a calendar year since 2010.

Tottenham ended Southampton's run of five hours and 24 minutes without conceding a league goal at St Mary's on Wednesday night.

West Brom have lost three of their last four Premier League games.

The Baggies have lost their last two away league games by a 1-0 scoreline - against Chelsea and Arsenal.
