Newcastle head into this match on a red-hot run that has left them on the verge of qualifying for the Champions League for the first time since 2004. The Magpies have won their last two matches by a whopping 10-2 aggregate scoreline, while they’ve tasted victory in seven of their last eight, with only a 3-0 defeat to Aston Villa a couple of weeks ago marking their record. As a result, Eddie Howe’s men are now eight points clear of fifth place with a game in hand.

Southampton, meanwhile, are in dire straights. Rooted to the bottom of the table, Saints are six points adrift of safety and without a win since early March having taken just three points from their last eight games. Ruben Selles’ side cannot be underestimated, with those three points coming in the form of draws with Manchester United, Tottenham and Arsenal, proving they can shock the best. But it’s victories Southampton need now, starting this weekend at St. James’ Park.

Newcastle vs Southampton match stats

Newcastle have the best defensive record in the Premier League so far this season, conceding just 26 goals in 32 games, while Man City (82), Arsenal (78), Liverpool (61) and Tottenham (60) have scored more. The quartet of Callum Wilson, Joelinton, Alexander Isak and Jacob Murphy have spearheaded their attacking push in the last two games, scoring all 10 goals between them.

Southampton have kept just one clean sheet in their last 10 games across all competitions, leaking 10 goals in their last four matches alone. But while James Ward-Prowse is around, there’s still hope. The England international is Saints’ top scorer with seven Premier League goals, four of which have come from free-kicks.
