    Hull City vs. Southampton: An Alternative Preview

    Probable Lineups:

    southampton hullHull City (4-4-2): Harper, Bruce, Davies, McShane, Figueroa, Elmohamady, Huddlestone, Livermore, Brady, Jelavic, Long

    The ‘Tigers’ earned a massive three points in their away win against Sunderland at the Stadium of Light, pushing them from hovering above the relegation zone all the way to 11th.  This will ease the pressure as they welcome Southampton, who are the in-form team this year but only managed a point when they played Stoke at Saint Mary’s a fortnight ago.  Shane Long will continue to partner Nikica Jelavic up front, while Rosenior is a major doubt with a hamstring problem.

    Southampton (4-4-1-1): Boruc, Clyne, Fonte, Yoshida, Shaw, Lallana, Cork, Schneiderlin, Rodriguez, Davis, Lambert

    The Saints were dealt a huge blow in their pursuit for European football with their third 2-2 draw in the space of four games.  Mauro Pochettino’s team are however playing some good football and with a strong set of winnable fixtures on the horizon, it is still entirely possible that they can sneak into Europe.  Dejan Lovren and Gaston Ramirez are still long-term injury concerns.

    What the fans are saying…
     Remember this?

    Rickie Lambert smashes home a penalty in their 4-1 drubbing of Hull earlier this season.

    Hull City are a strong team at home, but they could be complacent after coming off of an important win against Sunderland.  They could be facing a backlash from a Southampton side that should have grabbed better results in their recent games, and Rickie Lambert could be the one to put the ‘Tigers’ on the sword.

    Stats to get your head around…

    Hull City vs. Southampton: An Alternative Preview

    Hull City have won just one of their last five Barclays Premier League home matches (W1 D2 L2).

    Southampton have not won back to back away games in the Barclays Premier League since September 2001 (103 matches).

    Southampton have won seven and lost just one of the last 11 league meetings with Hull City (D3).

    The Saints have won three and lost just one of their last five league trips to Hull City (D1).

    Jay Rodriguez has scored seven goals in his last eight Premier League appearances away from home.

    Shane Long has scored in back-to-back Premier League appearances for the seventh time in his career, but he is yet to score in three successive appearances in the competition.

    Despite 15 different players scoring for them this season in the Premier League, Hull City have not seen any of these players net more than three times.

    Only one English player (Daniel Sturridge – 26) has scored more Premier League goals than Rickie Lambert (23) since the start of 2012-13.

    Lambert has also assisted 12 goals in this period, meaning that the only English player to have had a hand in more goals than the Southampton striker (35) since the start of 2012-13 is Wayne Rooney (40)

    Nikica Jelavic scored in his last appearance – his only goal in his last 22 Premier League matches. He last netted in back to back PL apps in October 2012.
