Newcastle United Prediction – Can Newcastle lift into top half?

The Magpies will certainly fancy their chances of collecting all three points in this Sunday afternoon clash against struggling Southampton when the two teams meet at St James’ Park with the hosts looking to extend their unbeaten run at home to 7 matches.

Newcastle experienced a shaky start under new manager, Steve Bruce, as the hosts suffered back-to-back defeats to Arsenal and Norwich City while gaining just 1 win out of their first 7 matches and the natives were understandably getting restless.

However, having lost just 2 of their subsequent 8 matches, Bruce’s side are now starting to gel, particularly at home where they possess an overall record of 2-4-1 7/6 and includes recent wins over Manchester United and Bournemouth as well as having held the upper hand over Southampton in recent exchanges at St James’ Park.

Newcastle are unbeaten in the last 3 meetings at home against The Saints which includes winning the last two encounters 3-1 and 3-0 respectively.

Southampton Prediction – Can Southampton win three on trot?

The visitors are another side who have recently re-discovered their mojo under manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl as The Saints make their way up to the north-east for this Sunday’s clash with Newcastle United on the back of a 3-match unbeaten run.

A point in a 2-2 draw with Arsenal at The Emirates was followed by back-to-back home wins against fellow strugglers, Watford and Norwich City, both by 2-1 margins, but despite this uplift in form, the south coast outfit still occupy a place in the bottom three.

It’s extremely tight down near the bottom of the table though as only 3 points separates 18th placed Southampton and 12th placed Brighton prior to this Sunday’s action in the top flight, but results away from home have dipped for Southampton.

The visitors are without a win from their last 4 matches on their travels which includes defeats at Tottenham and Manchester City while picking up points in draws with Wolves and Arsenal. However, with just 3 away wins from their last 14 matches on the road, Saints will do well to get anything out of Newcastle here I fancy.

 

Key-Facts – Newcastle United vs Southampton

  • Newcastle are unbeaten in their last 6 home matches in the Premier League
  • Southampton have won just 3 of their last 14 away matches in the EPL
  • Newcastle are unbeaten in the last 3 meetings at home against The Saints

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Newcastle United at St James’ Park are a stubborn beast and they should at least avoid defeat here, if not nick all three points.
