Saints can take big step to safety

Southampton can drag Swansea City and Huddersfield further into the relegation mire by inflicting a sixth home defeat of the season on Everton this weekend.

Sam Allardyce’s side have improved recently, taking 14 points from their last seven fixtures, but Saints showed in their 2-1 victory against Bournemouth that they have the appetite to escape the drop.

Southampton thrashed Everton 4-1 at St Mary’s in November, when Charlie Austin grabbed a brace, and the former QPR striker is 11/2 to score the first goal at Goodison Park in a game Mark Hughes’ team are 31/20 to win.

Stoke City have wasted so many opportunities to extricate themselves from trouble in the last few weeks that it is difficult to see them beating a Crystal Palace side that have done incredibly well to avoid the drop following their disastrous start to the campaign.

The Potters are without a win in 12 games but have drawn seven of those encounters and another draw, at 47/20, may be the best Paul Lambert’s team can expect from Saturday’s game.

A run of six games without a victory has left Swansea once again looking over their shoulders and a lack of goals could ultimately prove to be their downfall.

They have only scored twice in their recent winless sequence and their tally of 27 goals this season is the worst in the top flight, alongside Huddersfield.

Bournemouth may be safely in mid-table but they can add to the Swans’ woes by winning Saturday’s match by a one-goal margin at 53/20.

West Ham have been dire recently but can eke out a draw, at 49/20, against a Leicester side that slumped to a 5-0 loss at Crystal Palace last weekend.

Watford won 3-0 at Newcastle earlier in the season and can complete the double over Rafa Benitez’s side by beating the Magpies at Vicarage Road at 29/20 while West Brom’s relegation will finally be confirmed when they host Tottenham.

The Baggies have shown great spirit since Alan Pardew’s departure but the damage had already been done and a Spurs victory from behind on Saturday can be backed at 11/2.
