Newcastle United will host Southampton at St. James’ Park on Sunday in the Premier League. This is a very important game for both teams, but with different objectives. Newcastle are ambitious to keep their place in the top four and win a ticket to the Champions League next season, while Southampton are fighting to get out of the relegation zone and keep their hopes of staying in the top flight alive.
Newcastle have been outstanding this season under Eddie Howe, who has turned his team into an unstoppable goalscoring machine. They have scored 68 goals in 32 league matches, more than any other team in the league.
The Magpies also have a solid defense too, conceding only 32 goals, third best in the league. They have won seven of their last eight games, including thrashing 6-1 over Tottenham and 4-1 over Everton.
Newcastle have many star players who can make a difference on the pitch. Callum Wilson is the team’s top scorer with 13 goals, followed by Miguel Almirón with 11 and Alexander Isak with 10.
Jacob Murphy is also on fire, scoring four goals in his last two matches. In midfield, Joe Willock and Bruno Guimarães set the tempo of the game, while at the back, Jamaal Lascelles and Fabian Schär became strongholds.
Southampton, on the other hand, has had a poor and difficult season. They are in the last position of the standings with 24 points, six points from safety zone with five matches remaining.
The Saints are winless in their last eight matches, including losing 1-0 to Bournemouth in their last outing. They also often concede a lot of goals, especially from top teams.
Soton don’t have many quality player options to face Newcastle United. Their mainstay players such as James Ward-Prowse and Ché Adams only scored seven and five goals respectively throughout the season. Theo Walcott may be his only hope, as he has scored decisive goals in his last two matches against Newcastle United.
Predictions based on several well-known soccer sites. Newcastle United will win easily over Southampton and strengthen their position in the top four. Southampton will find it difficult to withstand the onslaught of Newcastle United and will be closer to relegation. Final score: Newcastle United 3-1 Southampton.
