Southampton host Brentford in a huge game for the hosts at St Mary's Stadium on Wednesday, as the Saints can move out of the relegation zone with a win.

Southampton host Brentford in a huge game for the hosts at St Mary’s Stadium on Wednesday.


After a hard-fought draw at 10-man Manchester United on Sunday, Ruben Selles has his side within two points of safety and he’s won two and drawn one of his four games in charge so far. Selles has the job until the end of the season and he’s made Southampton tough to beat with three clean sheets in four. Saints still sit bottom of the Premier League table but their recent upturn in results has dragged so many teams into the relegation scrap. With a tough run of games coming up, Southampton will have this home game down as a must-win.

Thomas Frank saw his Brentford saw lose at Everton last time out as their incredible 12-game unbeaten run came to an end. Expect to see a reaction from the Bees who are still chasing European qualification and have hammered Southampton 3-0 at home the last two times they’ve faced them. However, in their only Premier League trip to St Mary’s they did suffer a 4-1 defeat back in January 2022.

Key storylines & in-form players to watch

Saints have found a way to stay in games and their 4-2-3-1 formation is working well with midfield runners Kamaldeen Sulemana and Carlos Alcaraz causing chaos. Can they score enough goals to keep them up? That is the big question and right now James Ward-Prowse holds the key to Southampton’s survival as he’s their most likely source of goals. If Saints win this game they’re out of the relegation zone for the first time since November. That is their motivation.

Brentford know they could be without leading goalscorer and talisman Ivan Toney for quite some time as the FA continues to deliberate his punishment regarding alleged betting breaches. On the pitch the Bees have been superb this season and sit four points off the top six. Thomas Frank’s side were unlucky not to grab anything at Everton last time out and they can expect a similar game at Southampton as teams respect them and will sit back and soak up pressure.

Brighton’s Amex Stadium is geared up for M23 derby day, as Crystal Palace hopes their biggest rivalry is the tonic for their 10-match Premier League winless run (Watch live, 3:30pm ET online via Peacock Premium).

Palace has won just once since Week 15 (Nov. 12) but has only seen its table ranking drop from 10th to 12th. But their 27 points are right points off 11th and just three points above the bottom three.


Brighton’s played the fewest matches in the Premier League with 24 and sits seventh on the table. Those matches-in-hand mean Roberto De Zerbi’s men are either on the fringes of the top-four fight (!!) or just in a meaningless 11th.

Key storylines & star players

Brighton has claimed four of its last six points, but will not believe it’s not six as the Seagulls wasted chance after chance in a 2-2 draw with fortunate Leeds. Will it be 32-year-old Jason Steele in goal again, or will Robert Sanchez return to the Starting XI after a surprise trip to the bench?

Palace hasn’t registered a shot on target in over five hours of Premier League play, having been shut out by Liverpool, Aston Villa, and Manchester City. Wilfried Zaha has been back for the last 180 of those minutes, and he’s most certainly due to get cooking soon.

Can Liverpool (again) make one of the biggest comebacks in UEFA Champions League history (again) against a La Liga power (again)?

Liverpool heads to the Bernabeu hoping to get the better of a Real Madrid that hung an ugly 5-2 on them at Anfield.

[ MORE: How to watch Premier League in USA ]

The Reds have been up-and-down this season and are coming off another down: a 1-0 loss to Bournemouth described by our Joe Prince-Wright as “entitled.”

Real went on a three-match winless run after the Liverpool blowout, but the competition was very good: a draw in the Madrid derby, loss to Barcelona in the Copa del Rey semifinal first leg, and draw at Betis in league play. Madrid beat Espanyol 3-1 on Saturday.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of Real Madrid vs Liverpool.

Key storylines & star players

Madrid overcame an early Joselu goal to beat Espanyol as Vinicius Jr, Eder Militao, and Marco Asensio all scored in the win. Toni Kroos is still looking ageless as he enters his mid-30s, and would be a guaranteed big part of this one… if we knew for sure Carlo Ancelotti wouldn’t be rotating with the Clasico Copa del Rey second leg coming up soon.

Who knows with Liverpool? Three players scored braces in the 7-0 beatdown of Manchester United and the same basic group was summarily silenced by Bournemouth. Klopp played young Harvey Elliott and Stefan Bajcetic with Fabinho in the midfield against Bournemouth. Klopp may opt to put Jordan Henderson back in for Bajcetic or even James Milner but either way can they hang with three of Kroos, Luka Modric, Eduardo Camavinga, and Fede Valverde?

The USMNT will be without captain Tyler Adams when they play a pair of CONCACAF Nations League games later this month, but they will have 13 members of the 2022 World Cup squad, including Christian Pulisic and Gio Reyna, as confirmed by U.S. Soccer on Wednesday.

Adams will miss the games against Gernada (March 24) and El Salvador (March 27) after suffering a hamstring injury during a recent training session with Leeds United.

Reyna’s place within the team and program had come into question in the weeks and months since the World Cup, with events and an investigation transpiring involving former/a candidate to remain USMNT head coach Gregg Berhalter and Gio’s parents, Claudio and Danielle. Interim head coach Anthony Hudson explained Reyna’s inclusion as a decision to “move forward.”

“It became a bit more complex in the months since the World Cup, but as far as we’re concerned Gio is a part of our program,” Hudson said. “He’s a good guy and a top talent, and he is evaluated like any other player. We made the roster decisions based on what gives the team the best opportunity to win these games, and we brought him in because we think he can help us do that.”

Full USMNT roster for 2022-23 CONCACAF Nations League

Goalkeepers (3): Ethan Horvath (Luton Town), Zack Steffen (Middlesbrough), Matt Turner (Arsenal)

Defenders (8): Sergiño Dest (AC Milan/), Mark McKenzie (Genk), Tim Ream (Fulham/), Bryan Reynolds (Westerlo), Antonee Robinson (Fulham), Miles Robinson (Atlanta United), Joe Scally (Borussia Monchengladbach/), Auston Trusty (Birmingham City)

Midfielders (6): Brenden Aaronson (Leeds United), Johnny Cardoso (Internacional), Luca de la Torre (Celta Vigo), Weston McKennie (Leeds United), Yunus Musah (Valencia), Alan Sonora (Juárez)

Forwards (7): Taylor Booth (Utrecht), Daryl Dike (West Bromwich Albion), Ricardo Pepi (Groningen), Christian Pulisic (Chelsea), Gio Reyna (Borussia Dortmund), Tim Weah (Lille), Alejandro Zendejas (Club America)

Bournemouth heads to Aston Villa on Saturday, riding a surge of momentum that could help it escape the bottom three with another result (watch live, 11am online via Peacock Premium).

The 18th-place Cherries beat Liverpool 1-0 last time out and will be buzzing to visit Villa Park, where a win could see them as far as three points clear of the bottom three.


Villa sits 11th with 35 points, one of a host of clubs still capable of capturing seventh place and a spot in Europe.

Key storylines & star players

Leon Bailey will be looking to make amends for the penalty he conceded in a 1-1 draw with West Ham. Bailey’s looked quite good under Unai Emery, and his connection with in-form and sneaky postseason honors candidate Ollie Watkins could prove vital to this game and the top-half charge.

Philip Billing looks the sort of leader that can help prod a big finish out of Bournemouth, who has in Dango Outtara the electric injection it wanted from the January transfer market. Neto will matter quite a bit, too, for a team which is still conceding chances.

Aston Villa team news, injuries, lineup options

QUESTIONABLE: Leander Dendoncker (hand), Boubacar Kamara (ankle). OUT: Jed Steer (calf), Philippe Coutinho (thigh).

Bournemouth team news, injuries, lineup options

QUESTIONABLE: Illia Zabarnyi (ankle), Marcus Tavernier (thigh), Hamed Traore (muscular), Adam Smith (groin). OUT: Junior Stanislas (undisclosed)
