Competition: Premier League
Market: Danny Ings to score anytime
Odds: 11/5 @ Bet 365
Looking to carry on their recent run of form prior to the international break, Mark Hughes’ side, led by in-form striker Danny Ings, will welcome Brighton to St. Mary’s on Monday night.
Starting with Mark Hughes’ side, although they could only just avoid the drop last season, Southampton have now won their last two matches on the bounce prior to the international break. Along with knocking their opponents out of the League Cup last month, The Saints also picked up a 2-0 win over Crystal Palace last month. Now unbeaten in their last two, their recent success has been epitomized by the immediate impact of Liverpool loanee Danny Ings. The striker already has two in his last three and will fancy his chances against a Brighton side who have struggled of late.
For the visitors, although Brighton were boosted by their historic win over Manchester United at the start of the season, The Seagulls have struggled before the international break. Battling back from 2-0 down to take a point off of newly promoted Fulham, they have now lost three in their last five and their form on the road could be a concern for Chris Houghton. Brighton are still looking for their first win in 2018 having failed to win any of their last 16 matches away from The American Express Stadium. Without a clean sheet since the middle of May, we feel this could be another tough nights work.
Bet: Danny Ings 11/5 to score anytime against Brighton on Monday night @ Bet 365
