It has been a remarkable first season back in the top-flight for Marcelo Bielsa’s men after 16 years away, with the Whites proving themselves to be one of the most entertaining teams in the league and knowing that a win at St Mary’s will guarantee they cannot finish lower than 10th.

It has a been disastrous 2021 for Southampton which has seen them lose 13 of their 20 games, but a pair of 3-1 victories in the last two weeks means they should be at least able to contribute to a high-scoring game themselves.
