Defoe feels they're better than their table position suggests.
â€śI think Southampton are a good side with good players and they move the ball well,â€ť Defoe told the club's website.
â€śI watched them against Manchester United and although they lost that game, for the first 20, 25 minutes they were unbelievable.
â€śI can remember playing at St Mary's a few years ago, itâ€™s a lovely stadium and it will be rocking.
â€śIt will be a tough match but I canâ€™t see why we canâ€™t go there and get the three points.â€ť
