This Preview for Norwich City v Southampton includes my Premier League Predictions and pre-match analysis for Match Week 29 of the EPL.
Norwich actually played rather well defensively against Manchester United for large parts of the game last weekend despite the final 4-0 loss. They were able to keep United out of goal until stoppage time of the first half. The troubling part was their lack of shots on goal. Southampton had their own difficulties against bottom of the table QPR in their 1-2 loss at home.
Southampton will surely be looking to get a win considering where they are at in the table at the moment (16th on 27 points) only 3 points above the drop zone. A loss coupled with some other teams’ wins would mean they are down into the bottom.
Southampton has had some struggles lately while Norwich seems to have turned the corner a bit and clamped down defensively. Their recent results have been rather low scoring and I’m expecting the same thing to happen on Sunday. I think that much of the match will see both teams cancelling each other out in midfield. My prediction is a 1-1 draw.
Norwich City (D, D, D, W, L) 1 – 1 Southampton (L, D, W, L, L)
