Southampton host Watford on Saturday evening and will know that a win could transform their season.

A much-improved, battling display against Arsenal last weekend saw them come away with a 2-2 draw, but Ralph Hasenhuttl’s players will know that they could have claimed a priceless win.

Watford also find themselves in trouble and are bottom of the Premier League table, but a victory would see them climb above both Saints and Norwich.

Last season saw two 1-1 draws played out between the two clubs, with the meeting at Vicarage Road particularly memorable for the fastest ever Premier League goal scored by Shane Long.

Ahead of the game, here is a look back on three past home wins for Saints over the Hornets (info via soccerbase.com):
