Our prediction: Sheffield United v Southampton

Saints are in desperate need of a win and they won’t get a better chance between now and the end of the season than at lowly Sheffield United.

The Blades squad has been ravaged by injuries, and while there are fitness issues for Hasenhuttl too, the Saints boss should have a stronger XI out on the field at Bramall Lane than his opposite number.

Sheffield United will give this a good shot, but the game is one Saints should win, finally ending their nightmare run of form.

Our prediction: Sheffield United 0-2 Southampton (10/1 at bet365)
