Football will be actively played in England on Saturday. Separately in the evening, they decided to stage not a pair of giants Chelsea – Liverpool, but a duel between Southampton and Aston Villa. Will Unai Emery’s men stop the uprising of the “saints”? For readers of the website, access to the prediction for this match on January 21, 2023 is open.
Southampton is finally coming to life
The Saints were the first of the major disappointments of this season in English football. Especially against the background of the expectations that accompanied the summer transfer window, the first under the supervision of the current Serbian investor. And instead, the launch was a complete failure. But even after the fairly justified resignation of Ralph Hasenhüttl, nothing has changed in a positive direction – on the contrary, under Nathan Jones there have been 6 defeats in a row in the Premier League. But at the same time “Soton” manages to continue fighting in both cups and perhaps this allowed them to find their game. Indeed, in the last round, they finally went 2-1 in the championship. Or was Everton too simple an opponent in the face of the crisis?
Aston Villa are gearing up for a new manager
“Villana” after the start of the season changed the coach again. But of course, Unai Emery is more of a status specialist than newcomer Steven Gerrard, and he was given a number of guarantees before coming to Birmingham. Alex Moreno from Betis clearly “approached” the Spaniard, and for a certain Joe Duran in Chicago they gave 19 million, not without the consent of Spartak’s former mentor. However, even without the newcomers, he began to make progress. In the autumn, Aston Villa recorded victories over Manchester United and Brighton, after half-time meetings with Tottenham and Leeds won another debutant Spaniard, Lopetegui, by a draw with Wolverhampton. Yes, at the same time the cup campaign ended in a sensational defeat to a certain Stevenage, but that can be attributed to the desire to focus on progress in the Premier League.
Aston Villa have 3 wins and 1 loss in their last 4 matches. And all the results were “dry”.
