Aston Villa are the Premier League standings whipping boy this season having taken up residence in the Premier League relegation zone and are now doomed to drop a division at season’s end, but does that mean Southampton is one of this week’s best Premier League bets?
Looking back at this season’s Premier League scores one thing is abundantly clear, Aston Villa are a bit crap. Their ability to lose games now so ingrained that when they managed a draw against Man City back at the start of November you’d think they’d topped the Premier League table when quite the reverse is true.
With only one win to their name all season they sit on 5 points and no chance whatsoever of remaining in English football’s top flight whatever Remi Garde might wish, and Southampton are unlikely to lose Premier league games against this sort of opposition, especially after their last game making them one of the best Premier League bets this week.
Are The Saints One Of The Best Premier League Bets This Weekend?

Liverpool’s visit to the Saints was a humiliation disguised not as one of their regular Premier League fixtures but as a League Cup match, the newly invigorated Reds under Jurgen “The Normal One” Klopp battering six goals past Southampton including a hat-trick from Origi. Southampton will want to put that behind them with a convincing win in Premier League fixtures against a team like Villa in front of their home fans.
