Sports Mole previews West Bromwich Albion's trip to St Mary's Stadium to face Southampton.

Southampton host West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon as they look to extend their unbeaten run to seven games.

The Saints have been in tremendous form in recent weeks, picking up 12 points from a possible 18, to almost certainly secure their top-flight status next season.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino could name an unchanged starting lineup after his side drew 0-0 at Swansea City last weekend.

West Brom have seen their pursuit of a European place next season stutter since the turn of the year, but they will be hopeful of securing just their second victory in seven games at St Mary's Stadium.

Boss Steve Clarke witnessed the Baggies come from a goal behind to draw with Newcastle United last weekend, and after making an impact from the bench, striker Shane Long could partner Romelu Lukaku in attack.

West Bromwich Albion: Foster; Olsson, Popov, McAuley, Jones; Yacob, Morrison, Brunt, Dorrans; Lukaku, Long

Sports Mole says: 2-1
