Southampton vs Newcastle, Premier League 2020-21, Match Prediction

Southampton and Newcastle United square off at St Mary's Stadium for Friday evening's encounter in Premier League 2020-21

Match Timings: Nov 07, 1:30 AM 

Team Preview 

Southampton are fresh off an impressive victory over in-form Aston Villa in a seven-goal thriller at the weekend. The South Coast outfit has added four wins from their previous five in the Premier League, and it’s a dream season for them. James Ward-Prowse paced Southampton to get all three points against Villa last Sunday. Villa scored twice in the injury time, courtesy of Ollie Watkins and Jack Grealish’s goals, but the first-half lead made the Saints' task easy. 

Ralph Hasenhuttl's side moved to fifth in the table, 3 points behind leader Liverpool. Danny Ings’ knee injury can hurt Southampton’s campaign, but Ralph Hasenhuttl is confident of winning Friday’s clash. Ings is the top-scorer for the Saints, scoring 5 goals and provided two assists this season. Southampton can enjoy the top spot for a day if they get three points on Friday. 

Meanwhile, Newcastle can cross Southampton in the table, having picked 11 points from 7 matches, just two points behind their Friday rivals. The visitors picked up all three points against Carlo Ancelotti's men last Sunday. Dominic Calvert-Lewin scored the only goal for Everton in the stoppage-time after Callum Wilson's brace. 

Magpies haven’t lost a match in away-fixture this season, but a South Coast trip wouldn’t be easy. Steve Bruce's side had defeated Southampton twice last season, and the Saints haven’t tasted a victory over Newcastle since the 2015-16 campaign.
