Villa will be hoping to continue their good run of form with a win at St Mary’s Stadium having beaten Leeds United 2-0 at Villa Park last time out. Unai Emery’s Villa has only lost one of their past six Premier League games and is three matches without a loss, drawing with Wolverhampton Wanderers and beating Tottenham Hotspur in their run.
Southampton, meanwhile, is bottom of the Premier League table but showing signs of a resurgence under Nathan Jones with Saturday’s 2-1 win at fellow strugglers Everton coming after a shock 2-0 defeat of Manchester City. Because Villa’s trip to Southampton falls inside the Saturday afternoon blackout period, the game is not being shown on television domestically but highlights will be available on YouTube after the game and on Match of the Day on Saturday night.
Liverpool vs Chelsea and Crystal Palace vs Newcastle United are both Premier League games that have been picked for live television broadcast on Saturday. Southampton vs Villa is being broadcast worldwide as part of the top flight’s broadcast deal with overseas television channels and their respective streaming services.
Arena Sport will show the game in Eastern Europe while beIN SPORTS has the rights for the game in the Middle East and North Africa region and Turkey. DAZN is the rights holder for Spain while Optus Sports and Peacock Premium will broadcast the action in Australia and the United States of America respectively.
SuperSport Variety has Africa covered while V Sport and ViaPlay is the Premier League rights holder for the Netherlands, Scandinavia, and the Baltic region. Villa boss Emery, meanwhile, is wary of the threat Southampton will pose.
“They are at the bottom of the table and they need points, they are signing players as well and they are going to do everything they can to beat us on Saturday,” he said.
