300/1 odds reflect what would be a tough task in asking Southampton to win the title, but a top half finish is definitely within their reach. At 10/3, the Saints are in for a battle to return to the top half. If they stumble at the start of the season, many may also eye them up for relegation, where they are currently priced at just 10/3.
Who is the manager of Southampton?
Ralph Hasenhüttl is the current manager of Southampton, taking charge in 2018 after leaving RB Leipzig.

His passion and desire to win are always apparent by his lively antics on the touchline.
He’ll be hoping to build on last weekend’s draw and have a solid next few games but if not, he could face a fair bit of pressure. He is currently fourth in the market to be the first manager to leave.
Where is Southampton’s stadium?
St. Mary’s Stadium is located in Southampton and is currently the largest stadium in the South of England outside of London. It holds a capacity of 32,384 and has been home to the Saints since 2001.
