Saints aiming for first Prem treble since 2003

Daily Echo: Paulo Gazzaniga Paulo Gazzaniga

Paulo Gazzaniga is aiming to become the first Saints keeper to keep back-to-back Premier League clean sheets since October 2003 as the club bid to notch a hat-trick of consecutive top fight victories.

The last time Saints managed three Premier League wins on the spin was September 2003, as they defeated Manchester United, Wolves and Tottenham – the game that finished Glenn Hoddle’s time at White Hart Lane.

Just a month later the team, managed by Gordon Strachan the season after they had reached the FA Cup final and finished eighth in the top flight, kept back-to-back clean sheets – a feat they didn’t manage for another one and a half seasons at the highest level of English football.

The 20-year-old Argentinean keeper Gazzangia could help himself to a little slice of Saints history if he can keep out Norwich at St Mary’s tonight, just as he did with Newcastle.

Another Saints win, to add to victories over QPR and the Magpies, would also mark another milestone.

Resurgent Saints have dragged themselves up the table thanks to their recent points haul but know they face a strong team in Norwich, who have enjoyed a fruitful spell under the leadership of Chris Hughton.

Only Manchester United and Manchester City have picked up more Premier League points in the last six games than the Canaries.
