Take a look at the key statistics ahead of Southampton’s trip to face Stoke City at bet365 Stadium in the Premier League.

 - Stoke City have won just one of their previous four home Premier League games against Southampton (D2 L1), with both teams scoring in each match.

- Southampton have scored in each of their last 13 league visits to Stoke, last failing to score there in a league game in August 1977.

- This will be Mark Hughes' 400th Premier League game as a manager and will be the sixth manager to reach this landmark in the competition.

- Mark Hughes has overseen Premier League victories against 70 different managers overall and this is his first ever meeting in the competition with Claude Puel.

- Stoke have won three of their last four Premier League home games (W3 D0 L1); the same number of victories as they had managed in their previous 12 games at the Bet365 Stadium.

- The Potters have only failed to find the net in one of their last 11 Premier League matches.

- Southampton have only allowed their opponents 37 shots on target in the Premier League this season; fewer than any other side.

- Saints have won only one of their last seven Premier League away games (W1 D2 L4), including two defeats in a row at Hull and Crystal Palace most recently.

- Of goalkeepers to have played 50+ Premier League games, Fraser Forster has the joint-second best goals conceded per game average (0.84 per game). Jens Lehmann is level with the Englishman, while only Petr Cech (0.75 per game) has a better ratio.
