Newcastle United vs Southampton Match Preview
Southampton’s resurgence under Ralph Hasenhuttl is now in full swing and they look capable of gaining a point away to Newcastle.
Saints have been just above the Premier League relegation zone for the vast majority of the season but, due to their good form and with a favourable run-in, they could yet haul themselves up to the heady heights of mid-table.
It’s four wins in six games for Southampton and their only ‘failures’ during the current spell have been defeats to Liverpool and Manchester United – and they were still right in both of those contests until the latter stages.
Newcastle are also a more formidable proposition than in the first half of this campaign and they too have dragged themselves out of trouble with some valuable victories.
You are never quite sure which Magpies will turn up because their form tends to fluctuate, consistency not their strong suit of late, but at least the lengthy barren runs without a win they suffered earlier in the season have been consigned to history, at least for the time being.
Crystal Palace triumphed on Tyneside a couple of weeks ago to exemplify that Newcastle are not the most reliable outfit, and with these clubs side by side in the table we can see this being a closely-fought but entertaining struggle that could well end all-square.
