Hull vs Southampton | Saturday 1 November, 2014 | KC Stadium | Kick off 15.00
Southampton might be on a winning streak but they could be feeling fatigued ahead of Saturday’s game against Hull City. Can they keep their impressive form going or will the Tigers take advantage of a tiring Saints side?
Ronald Koeman is confident that Southampton will continue their successful run at the KC stadium this weekend when they play Hull, who currently sit eight points below them on the table.
Southampton have had a fantastic campaign so far despite Koeman only taking over as manager just a few months ago and the fact that many of their best players were sold in the summer window.
Their last three games have seen them defeat Sunderland in a shock 8-0 victory before beating Stoke City twice this week, once in the Premier League last weekend and again in a League Cup tie on Wednesday.
With nine wins from their last 10 matches in all competitions the Saints are in excellent form but the trip to Stoke at the weekend will be their third fixture in just over a week.
“The lads are showing great ambition,” commented Koeman on their form. “They will be tired, but if you’re winning you’re not so tired.”
Graziano Pelle scored two of the Saints goals on Wednesday and will be looking to continue racking up goals at the weekend.
Hull might be further down the ranks than Southampton currently but they have reason to be optimistic ahead of the weekend as they are unbeaten in their last three games, which included clashes at Arsenal and Liverpool.
Steve Bruce’s side, who were promoted to the Premier League for the 2013-14 season, have flourished since their manager took over in 2012.
“It is unbelievable to think how far we have come,” said Bruce. “The supporters must agree with that. Things have changed so much since I first came here.”
Hull will be without several of players due to injuries, including Michael Dawson (ankle), Nikica Jelavic (knee), Steve harper (arm) and Allan McGregor (shoulder).
Southampton’s Jay Rodriguez and James Ward-Prowse remain out due to knee problems, but otherwise have no new injury concerns.
