Last week they drew 1-1 home against West Ham and have been struggling for goals recently.

Meanwhile, relegation threatened Southampton have lost three games in a row and go into the weekend sat in the relegation zone, but only two points from safety.

They lost to Arsenal 3-2 last Sunday at the Emirates.
