Southampton vs Newcastle United Match Analysis and Prediction

Newcastle United will be looking to move further away from the relegation zone when they travel to face Southampton at the St. Mary’s Stadium for their Premier League clash on Thursday.

The hosts went down to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa in their most recent fixture, while Newcastle kept their run with a 2-1 victory over Brighton & Hove Albion.

Neither Ralph Hasenhuttl nor the Southampton supporters could have predicted the peformance witnessed at Villa Park, as former Saints talisman ran his old employers ragged.

Danny Ings got a goal with two assists to his name to show his former club what they are missing, with Philippe Coutinho, Ollie Watkins and Douglas Luiz also geeting on the scoresheet for Aston Villa to bring Southampton crashing to earth.

Hasenhuttle’s side had managed to secure five wins from six before their trip to Villa Park, so the manner of their capitulation against the Lions was quite the shock to the system.

However, Southampton’s strong run of form has allowed them to cement themselves in the top half of the rankings in ninth place on 35 points, and they will certainly welcome the return of home comforts this week.

It would have been some story to see Newcastle participate in the second division of English football after becoming one of the richest clubs in the world, but Eddie Howe’s January acquisitions are finally proving fruitful for the in-form Magpies.

A seven-point gap now separates Newcastle from the relegation zone as they prepare to push further up the Premier League table in the coming years.

Southampton and Newcastle played out a 2-2 draw at St James’ Park earlier in the season, and the Saints have only won one of their nine with the Magpies in the league, although that came at St Mary’s 2-0 last season.

Southampton news

Centre-back Mohammed Salisu was absent against Aston Villa with a tight hamstring and will need to be assessed ahead of this game, but defender Lyanco is definitely out.

Shane Long and Nathan Tella remain doubts, while Fraser Forster may be replaced by Alex McCarthy in goal who recovers from his thigh injury.

Newcastle United news

Newcastle’s Jamal Lewis, Callum Wilson, Isaac Hayden and Kieran Trippier remain out for the long-term, and it may still be too soon for Matt Ritchie to come back from his knee issue.

One change can be expected in the final third, with Allan Saint-Maximin likely to replace Jacob Murphy on Thursday.

Prediction and Odds

Southampton rarely come away from St Mary’s without anything to show for their efforts, and we could not rule them out against a resurgent Newcastle side.

Newcastle have recently put together some good performance, something the will want to maintain on Thursday, and we expect them to collect  at least a point.

Odds: 2.35 2.05 2.10
