SlipsTips shares a selection ahead of Southampton's do-or-die Premier League clash with Fulham on Saturday afternoon.

Southampton vs Fulham (Saturday, 15:00)

It’s the last-chance saloon for Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon as they face Fulham in a must-win game at St Mary’s.

Following a damaging 4-3 defeat at Nottingham Forest on Monday, the Saints' 11-year stay in the top-flight will come to an end if they fail to overcome the Cottagers this weekend.

By contrast, Marco Silva’s top-10 chasing team will roll into the south coast on cloud nine after crushing Leicester City 5-3 last time out.

I successfully backed Over 2.5 Goals in Fulham’s aforementioned thumping of the Foxes and I'm more than happy to side with the same selection here at 10/11 (Bet 365).

Fulham have been providing plenty of thrills for Premier League spectators all season, with a considerable 23 of their 35 contests crashing through the Over 2.5 Goal barrier, a sample that includes six of their last 10 top-flight tussles.

While other sides may be relaxing and starting to pack their beach towels at this stage of the season, Marco Silva’s men are still looking fully motivated, not to mention they will once again have the option of playing the ace up their sleeve in the form of returning talisman Aleksandar Mitrović .

As for Southampton, they simply have no choice but to throw the proverbial kitchen sink at Fulham in search of victory here if they are to set the wheels in motion for what would be the unlikeliest of great escapes.

Despite their woes and pending relegation, Rubén Sellés' strugglers have carried an attacking threat in recent months, as evidenced by the fact that they have struck in meetings with Man City, Arsenal and Newcastle, as well netting three times at Nottingham Forest on Monday.

In fact, four of the Saints’ last eight league games have featured a minimum of four match goals, with two fixtures from that sequence ending 3-3, not to mention the aforementioned 4-3 loss at Nottingham Forest last time out.

Taking all of that into account, as well as the fact that these two teams have combined to keep a mere 12 clean sheets across their combined 70 Premier League games this season, supporting Over 2.5 Goals at 10/11 (Bet 365) stands out in a game that could have the potential to turn into a high-scoring shootout.
