Newcastle vs Southampton Predictions


Southampton have lost their way after a 9-0 defeat to Manchester United. The problem is the mounting list of absentees.

Newcastle failed to build on their weekend win over Everton, but they have an excellent home record against Southampton.

  • Newcastle have won their last 3 home matches against Southampton (English Premier League).
  • Southampton have lost their last 4 matches (English Premier League).
  • Southampton have lost their last 2 away matches (English Premier League).
  • Southampton have failed to score in their last 3 away matches (English Premier League).

Head to Head


Southampton were 2-0 winners when the sides met at St Mary's in November. Che Adams and Stuart Armstrong got the goals.

The Saints trail 40-38 in the all-time head to head record with Newcastle, with 23 draws. 

Newcastle Form


Newcastle's 2-0 win at Everton last Saturday failed to spark any improvement in home form as they lost 2-1 against Crystal Palace on Tuesday.

Jonjo Shelvey put Steve Bruce's side in front after just two minutes. But Jairo Riedewald and Gary Cahill scored twice in four first-half minutes for Palace.

It was a third straight 2-1 defeat at home for the Magpies, who also went down to Leicester and Leeds by the same scoreline.

Newcastle have now lost five of their last six Premier League games. They went down 1-0 at Sheffield United, 3-0 at Arsenal and 2-0 at Aston Villa.

Newcastle Team News


Defenders Jamaal Lascelles, Federico Fernandez and Paul Dummett are Newcastle's only injury absences.

Joe Willock will come into the Magpies squad for his debut. Will Steve Bruce hand him a start or name the Arsenal loanee on the bench?

Southampton Form


A horror show saw nine-man Southampton lose 9-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford on Wednesday.

Alexandre Jankewitz was sent off after 70 seconds, and Jan Bednarek was also dismissed in the heavy defeat. 

It was a fourth straight loss in the Premier League for the Saints, who also lost 2-0 at Leicester and 3-1 and 1-0 at home to Arsenal and Aston Villa.

Ralph Hassenhuttl's side did record FA Cup wins over Shrewsbury (2-0) and Arsenal (1-0) to progress to the fifth round, but their league form has dropped off a cliff.

Southampton Team News


Southampton were given a boost with centre-back Jan Bednarek's red card against Man United overturned on appeal. 

He will line up at Newcastle, but teenager Alexandre Jankewitz is banned after being sent off two minutes into his full debut.

Saints' long injury list includes central defender Mohammed Salisu and midfielders Ibrahima Diallo, Stuart Armstrong and Nathan Tello. 

Winger Will Smallbone and forward Michael Obafemi are also out, but new loan signing Takumi Minamino is set for a debut.

Right back Kyle Walker-Peters, centre-back Jannik Vestergaard, midfielder Oriol Romeu and winger Theo Walcott could return.
