Southampton vs Newcastle Preview, Predictions & Betting Tips

Southampton will attempt to bounce back from their defeat against West Ham when they host Newcastle in an English Premier League fixture at St Mary’s. The Saints have found clean sheets hard to come by and are set to face a Newcastle team who have struggled on the road.

Southampton Form

Southampton are coming off a disappointing 3-1 defeat against West Ham in their previous Premier League fixture. Michael Obafemi struck their only goal in a game where they were guilty of a string of defensive errors.

The Saints have struggled to find consistency lately but claimed a 2-0 victory over Aston Villa in their previous home fixture. The major problem for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men is their defence which has kept just one clean sheet in their last six matches.

Southampton News

Winger Nathan Redmond misses out through injury while Yan Valery is likely to feature at right back in place of Kyle Walker-Peters. Striker Danny Ings should return to the starting lineup after coming off the bench at the London Stadium.

Newcastle Form

Newcastle got some respite from their recent struggles on Tuesday as they claimed a 3-2 victory over West Brom in the FA Cup fifth round. Miguel Almiron scored a first half brace while Valentino Lazaro added the third after the break.

Manager Steve Bruce will be pleased with the win, but there is a worry about the team’s defending having conceded twice after taking a 3-0 lead. They have also conceded in nine straight away matches with their last clean sheet on the road coming at Sheffield United back in December.

Ironically, the Magpies have seen some good results on the road in recent weeks and are unbeaten in five of their last seven away matches.

Newcastle News

Defenders Jetro Willems, Ciaran Clark and Paul Dummett remain sidelined with injury alongside striker Andy Carroll. Right back Emil Krafth and winger Christian Atsu are both back in contention while Jonjo Shelvey could return to the starting lineup after coming off the bench at the Hawthorns.

Southampton vs Newcastle Head to Head

Newcastle have a 25-22 advantage with 17 draws from 64 previous matches against Southampton. There has been BTTS in six of the last eight meetings, although the most recent fixture at St Mary’s ended 0-0.

Newcastle claimed a 2-1 victory in the reverse fixture at St James’ Park. Jonjo Shelvey and Federico Fernandez got the goals for the Magpies after Danny Ings had given Southampton the lead. 

Southampton vs Newcastle Betting Odds

William Hill is offering odds of 1.65 for a Southampton win while a victory for Newcastle is valued at 5.25 at bet365. Unibet is paying 4.15 for a draw which was the outcome in the last meeting at St Mary’s.

Newcastle produced over 4.5 in their last fixture and a similar outcome is valued at 6.50 at Paddy Power. Over 3.5 is priced at 3.15 while over 2.5 goals is set at odds 1.90.

Southampton vs Newcastle Match Up

Danny Ings will be the one to watch for Southampton as he looks to add to his 15 Premier League goals. The striker was on target in the reverse fixture and should combine well with Shane Long who has two goals in his last three home matches. 

Miguel Almiron looked sharp against West Brom and will attempt to build on his brace at the Hawthorns. He should trouble the Southampton defence alongside Allan Saint-Maximin who is a handful with his pace.
