Southampton welcome Brentford to St Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon.

The Saints had a string of promising performances punctured by a 1-0 defeat to Wolves last weekend. Che Adams managed to concede a free kick by heading the ball onto his own arm a yard from goal as Ralph Hasenhuttl was left pondering how his side didn’t find the net.

Brentford haven’t experienced the same issues at the sharp end of the pitch, rattling in 15 goals across their opening six matches – a tally only reigning champions Manchester City can better this season.

Here’s everything you need to know about the meeting between this duo.

Southampton team news

Romeo Lavia joins long-term absentee Tino Livramento on the sidelines with a hamstring problem expected to keep him out for at least six weeks.

Duje Caleta-Car was part of a late glut of arrivals on the south coast this summer. The former Marseille centre-back didn’t make the bench for the defeat to Wolves because the negotiations were so delayed but could figure in the squad this weekend.

Southampton Starting 11: Bazunu; Walker-Peters, Bella-Kotchap, Salisu, Perraud; Ward-Prowse, Diallo; S Armstrong, Aribo, A Armstrong; Adams.
Bench: McCarthy, Maitland-Niles, Caleta-Car, Elyounoussi, Djenepo, Edozie, Larios, Walcott, Mara.

Brentford team news

Kristoffer Ajer was a welcome returnee on Brentford‘s bench during a riotous 5-2 victory over Leeds last weekend. The Norway defender wasn’t joined by Sergi Canos, who is creeping towards full fitness as Brentford take a cautious approach to avoid “re-injury risk”.

Christian Norgaard has finally succumb to a nagging Achilles problem and is set to be out for “some weeks”.

Brentford Starting 11: Raya; Hickey, Jansson, Mee, Henry; Baptiste, Janelt, Jensen; Mbeumo, Toney, Lewis-Potter.
Bench: Strakosha, Dasilva, Wissa, Jorgensen, Ghoddos, Onyeka, Ajer, Damsgaard, Roerslev.

Daniel Podence’s finish may have been fortuitous but the rapidity of Wolves’ attack was a threat Hasenhuttl wearily flagged post-game. “Wolves are waiting for these moments on the counter-attack,” he said. “They have speed and quality up front.”

No Premier League team has posed the same deadly threat in transition as Brentford this season. The Bees lead the league for shots (ten) and goals (four) following high turnovers (per Opta).

Boasting a royally in-form Ivan Toney, Brentford’s hot-streak in front of goal could continue this weekend.

Prediction: Southampton 2-3 Brentford
