Match Preview

Newcastle United continued their good run of form in the Premier League (PL) with an excellent 2-0 away win at Sheffield United on Thursday. The ‘Magpies’ have now lost just one of their last six PL matches (W3, D2) and their latest win earned them their first clean sheet since October.
Steve Bruce’s team are enjoying a six-match unbeaten streak at St James’ Park (W2, D4). They like to keep things tight here in most cases, as their PL home encounters this season have averaged only 1.86 goals, which is the second-lowest home average going into this weekend.
Southampton travel after claiming back-to-back PL victories for the first time since March. Their last three PL wins have yielded a one-goal margin, and the same can be said of their last two defeats in league action. This game may still be entertaining though, as nine of their last ten PL games have seen over 2.5 goals.
The ‘Saints’ may have won their previous two, but both matches were played at home. They have a long-standing issue in relation to their away form, as they have failed to win 19 of their last 24 PL away matches (W5, D6, L13).
Players to watch: Newcastle midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has scored in two games running, in turn beating his league goal tally from 2017/18 & 2018/19 combined!
Between them, Danny Ings and James Ward-Prowse have scored 11 of Southampton’s last 12 PL goals (91.67%).
Stat attack: Eight of the last nine H2H meetings have seen over 2.5 goals scored.
At least one team has scored exactly two goals in each of Newcastle’s last five PL matches.
Eleven of Southampton’s 15 PL games this season have seen both teams score.
