Southampton are back in action in the Premier League against Watford on Sunday

Southampton lock horns with Watford at the St. Mary's Stadium in the round 29 fixture of the Premier League on Sunday.

Both the home and visiting sides were in action in the league during the week. Southampton saw a one-goal lead overturned by Newcastle at home as they suffered a 2-1 loss.

Watford suffered their third loss in four league games as Wolves ran riot at home and condemned the Hornets to a 4-0 defeat. A win for the hosts is a must to stay in the upper half of the table, while a win for the visiting side could propel them out of the relegation zone.

Southampton boast a decent home record with only two of their nine losses this season coming at home. They came up short against Newcastle in their previous outing and will be looking to bounce back here.

Watford's winless run of four games in the league have put them right in the middle of the relegation battle. They have three wins in their travels this season but it is unlikely that they will be able to get the better of the hosts here.

Prediction: Southampton 2-0 Watford
