    Southampton vs West Bromwich Albion

    Southampton have only ever scored five goals in eight Premier League encounters with West Brom but three of those goals have resulted in 1-0 wins, including both matches last season.

    With 13 goals in eight fixtures, matches between Southampton and WBA have averaged only 1.6 per game.

    WBA's Saido Berahino was the only player to score more than once in the opening round of Premier League games.

    Dusan Tadic has provided three assists in his last three league games (2 for FC Twente, 1 for Southampton).

    Saints have scored 11 goals in their last five Premier League home games.

    The Baggies have scored a total of only two goals in their last nine Premier League away games in August.

    West Brom have never won a Premier League game away from home in August.

    Southampton and WBA have both been involved in three high-scoring draws (2-2 or higher) in 2014, no club has experienced more this year.

    James Ward-Prowse's only Premier League assist at St Mary's Stadium came almost exactly a year ago (August 24 2013).

    Three teams were awarded a penalty on the opening day of the Premier League season but WBA were the only ones to score.
