Second round

In the top-flight competition Premier League, Southampton finished in 15th place with 43 points, after Crystal Palace in 14th and Brighton & Hove Albion in 16th rank. This South Coast club won 12 matches in a total of 38 Premier League games, lost 19 matches, and seven draws. This result was quite similar to their finishes in recent seasons of the Premier League (11th in the 2019-20 season and 16th in the 2018-19 season). However, it is definitely not the best of them. Southampton did finish second in the 1983-84 season of the First Division (which was the top division of English football at that time, and became the Premier League in the 1992-93 edition), or seventh in the 2014-15 Premier League. 

The Saints ended up with the semi-finals round and lost to Leicester City by 0-1 in the 2020-21 FA Cup. They started the cup in the third round and won a total of four matches (in the third, fourth, fifth, and quarter-finals each). Despite not being crowned the championship, Southampton amazingly knocked out Arsenal in the fourth round by 1-0.

A few things about Southampton

Origin

Southampton Football Club is a professional football club based in Southampton city, Hampshire, in Southeast England. The club was established on 21 November 1885 at St. Mary’s Church, hence their religious nickname The Saints. Their original name was St. Mary’s Young Men’s Association F.C (abbreviated to St. Mary’s Y.M.A).

They used to play at The Dell until 2001. Since August 2001, St Mary’s Stadium has become Southampton’s home ground.

League honors

Southampton has spent most of their senior time in the top-flight First Division, which is the Premier League later on since they got the promotion to it in 1966. However, the South Coast club only once finished as the runner-up in the 1983-84 season of the First Division. Since the First Division became the current Premier League, their highest standing was seventh. 

Their greatest achievement in the domestic English football league system was the championship in the 1959-60 Division Three, or actually the League One now. For further information about the achievements of Southampton, look below:
