Southampton are in quite the predicament as far as their Premier League position is concerned.
Mauricio Pellegrino’s side are currently in the relegation zone alongside West Bromwich Albion and Swansea City.
The Saints are one point adrift of safety having failed to win a top-flight game since November.
At the weekend, there was a moment for celebration as the coastal club progressed into the fifth round of the FA Cup thanks to a 1-0 win over Watford.
This week, though, all focus is back on the league as the team prepare to face Brighton at St Mary’s on Wednesday night before travelling to The Hawthorns to take on West Brom on Saturday.

The Baggies will especially be determined to take points off Southampton as they currently reside three points below the cut-off.
As for Brighton, Chris Hughton’s team are just one point above the relegation pack, but that could all change after midweek.
Southampton fans have taken to Twitter to give their thoughts on the upcoming fixtures.
