Derby County vs Southampton

Pride Park will play host while Derby County takes on Southampton in the Third Round of the FA Cup this Saturday. Derby County may have been drawn against a Premier League side, but considering how poorly Southampton have performed the Championship side have a great chance of securing a victory. Saints may not have been in the best of form this season but they did manage to hold Chelsea to a draw in their previous game which will have boosted their confidence. The Rams tumbled out of the third round last year to Manchester United, while Southampton surprised many after they made it to the semi-finals before losing 2-0 to Chelsea.

Derby County have been a strong side for the majority of the season which has earnt them a spot up in sixth after 26 matches. Frank Lampard had found his side slightly higher up the table, but a tough run of games has seen them pick up just one win from five games, however, on the plus side only one game has ended in defeat. Due to Derby’s strong performances this season they arrive as slight underdogs to win in this cup clash and you can back them at a price of e 17/10 with SkyBet. Four of Derby’s last five games have seen both teams get on the scoresheet and with their upcoming opponents prone to conceding you may want to back BTTS with Betway who are offering odds of 4/5.

Liverpool Loanee, Harry Wilson, is one player that continues to provide his side with crucial goals with his incredible freekicks. Over the course of the season, he has bagged ten goals placing him as Derby’s highest scoring player and Bet365 have him to score anytime at 13/5, which seem very generous odds for their top goalscorer. Jack Marriot sits just behind Harry Wilson with goals scored with nine this season and is priced at 13/8 to score anytime with Bet365.


Being the Premier League side, Southampton does arrive as favourites to win but due to their poor form this season the odds are only slightly in their favour. All of SkyBet, Bet365 and Betway have Southampton to win priced at 8/5. Saints have taken just 16 points from their 21 games played which have earnt them a spot down in 18th and should be wary of their Championship opponents. Four of Southampton’s last five fixtures have seen the final score finish over 2.5 goals and Betway are offering 21/20 for over 2.5 goals to be scored.

Although Southampton have struggled in front of goal this season one player that continues to provide a threat and the majority of their goals is Liverpool loanee, Danny Ings. the forward has bagged eight goals this season, however, finds himself in a drought which has now lasted three games. Ings remains the most likely player to score at any time amongst the two sides though with odds of 6/4 with Bet365.
