Squad Comparison


A trademark James Ward-Prowse free kick counted for naught as Southampton fell to a late defeat against European outsiders Fulham on New Year’s Eve, as the Saints captain lost the battle for midfield superiority to Cottagers hero Joao Palhinha. Ward-Prowse turned into his own net before sending a thumping long-range free kick beyond the futile reach of Bernd Leno in the 56th minute, but as they were just two minutes away.

Now at risk of suffering a sixth consecutive defeat in England’s top flight, Southampton enter 2023 as the division’s worst-performing home team with a mere six points from a possible 24 at St Mary’s, while also conceding a league-high 15 goals on their own patch so far. Finding the back of the net in each of their last four matches does give the Saints a slight glimmer of hope, as does the fact that they have won each of their last three opening games of the calendar year, but the visitors travel south with a fresh wave of optimism.

Southampton Playing XI

Bazunu; Lyanco, Salisu, Bella-Kotchap; Walker-Peters, Lavia, Ward-Prowse, Elyounoussi; S. Armstrong, Aribo; Adams

Nottingham Forest

Following a spate of New Year’s Eve fireworks, Nottingham Forest’s clash with Chelsea also saw sparks fly between two hot-headed teams, and the City Ground faithful left the happier of the two sets of fans after witnessing their team claim a well-earned point. Raheem Sterling’s fortunate goal put Chelsea 1-0 up on the 16-minute mark, but former Tottenham Hotspur man Serge Aurier proved that there was no love lost with his old London rivals as he did brilliantly to chest the ball down and volley home just after the hour mark.

While happily accepting a point against the Blues, Steve Cooper admitted that his side arguably should have come away with all three, and as a result they remain below the dotted ine in 18th place but only behind West Ham United on goal difference. Two defeats in seven is hardly a disastrous record for Nottingham Forest, especially when those most recent losses came away to Arsenal and Manchester United, but they remain without a Premier League win on the road this term and have now embarrassingly failed to score in their last six top-flight games on rival turf.

Nottingham Forest Playing XI

Henderson; Aurier, Worrall, Boly, Lodi; Yates, Freuler, Mangala; Johnson, Gibbs-White, Awoniyi

Match Prediction for Southampton vs Nottingham Forest

A revitalized Nottingham Forest can end their abysmal goalscoring failures on the road against a leaky Southampton defence, but Cooper’s side are crucially working with a day’s less rest before a long trip south. Jones’s men have not had much trouble finding the back of the net during their own poor stretch of results, and with both teams wary of defeat in this relegation six-pointer, we can anticipate a low-scoring stalemate at St Mary’s.
