Aston Villa vs Southampton match stats

Aston Villa have won just one of their last 10 Premier League games (three draws and six losses). Meanwhile, they’ve conceded in each of their last 11 Premier League matches, last having a longer run without a clean sheet in the competition between December 2012 and September 2013 (26 games). No side has used fewer players in the Premier League so far this season than Aston Villa (18). Despite this, Villa have made more changes to their starting XI than any other side (14).

Danny Ings has scored four goals in the last three Premier League meetings between Villa and Southampton at Villa Park, with just one of those coming for his current club. Philippe Coutinho has been involved in more Premier League goals against Southampton than he has any other opponent (seven – five goals and two assists), both scoring and assisting in each of his last two appearances against the Saints. Despite playing less than half the minutes available so far in the Premier League this season (253), Ings has had more shots (8) and more touches in the opposition box (20) than any other Villa player.

Southampton have alternated between victory and defeat in their last four Premier League games, with their two wins in this run more than they’d managed in their previous 14 beforehand (one win, three draws and 10 losses). Southampton have conceded the first goal in each of their last five Premier League games but have only gone on to lose twice (1-0 to both Man Utd and Wolves). They came from two goals down to draw with Leeds, before picking up 2-1 victories over Leicester and Chelsea. Che Adams has scored four of Southampton’s six away goals in all competitions this season, netting braces against Leicester City in the Premier League and Cambridge United in the EFL Cup.
