Newcastle News and Form – Can the rising Magpies beat the Saints?

The Magpies earned themselves a very good 2-0 away win at Sheffield United. There was a touch of a smash and grab feel about it, but Newcastle got things tactically spot on at Bramall Lane. That is one loss in their last six league outings now and their midweek success moved them up to the middle of the table. On home soil this season Newcastle are W2 D4 L1 and it a six-match undefeated streak of form that they have put together at St James’ Park. That includes their 2-2 draw against Man City in their last home fixture.

The Magpies have scored in each of their last four home games. It may easily have gone unnoticed but Newcastle have scored at least two goals in four of their last five league games, home and away combined. There seems to be growing confidence in them. They do set themselves up well as a side which is hard to break down. To that end, they have conceded only six goals in their seven home games. Four of the five league wins that Newcastle have managed this season have been by a margin of one goal.

Southampton News and Form – Can the Saints grab away points?

Southampton came up with another win in midweek, making it back to back league successes for them. Those were both 2-1 home victories over relegation-candidates Watford and Norwich. The points moved Southampton out of the drop zone in midweek. It is a W2 D2 L3 record that they have earned out on their travels. They have failed to win any of their last four on the road, banking two points for themselves in that sequence.

Each of Southampton’s last six league outings have gone over 2.5 goals. Both teams have scored in all but one of their last ten. It has been a great return of seven points from their last three games that Southampton have managed to take, and it has been three straight games win which they have scored exactly two goals as well. Danny Ings in some great goalscoring form at the moment, having put together a four-match winning streak. The Saints would probably be happy with a point out of this long trip up north.
