Southampton vs Shrewsbury Prediction


I’m backing Southampton’s quality to shine through against Shrewsbury.

  • Southampton have won to nil in all 5 home wins this season (English Premier League).
  • Southampton have kept 3 clean sheets in their last 4 home matches (English Premier League).
  • Shrewsbury have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 5 matches (English League One).

Head to Head


Southampton have 9 wins in this fixture compared to Shrewsbury’s 4. They have also drawn their last 4 matches.

The most recent meeting ended in a 2-0 Southampton win in the FA Cup in January 2020.

Southampton Form


Goals may have dried up to an extent in recent weeks, but Southampton have continued to keep a solid base at the back.

They drew 0-0 in successive matches against Fulham and West Ham before facing champions Liverpool at home. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s team came out on top after Danny Ings’ second minute opener sealed a 1-0 win at home.

They were unable to add to that victory in their last match after losing 2-0 away to Leicester, despite having their fair share of chances. James Maddison and Harvey Barnes scored as Brendan Rodgers’ team took the three points.

Southampton Team News & Injuries


Full-back Ryan Bertrand is suspended. Southampton’s huge injury list features Oriol Romeu, Nathan Tella, Michael Obafemi, Mohammed Salisu, Moussa Djenepo, Nathan Redmond and Jannik Vestergaard.

Shrewsbury Form


Shrewsbury have turned things around in League One after starting the season with just one win in 15 matches.

Their form has seen them move up to 17th in the table, with two wins in their last three matches. Shrewsbury beat Doncaster 1-0 before drawing 1-1 away to Wigan on Boxing Day. 

Last time out, they beat Blackpool 1-0 thanks to Daniel Udoh’s goal in the 38th minute. That game was played on December 29, meaning Shrewsbury have had a three week break in between matches due to Covid.

Shrewsbury Team News & Injuries


Shrewsbury had 20 players and members of their coaching staff suffering from Covid, including manager Steve Cotterill who will be absent from the touchline on Tuesday.
