Southampton vs Newcastle: Predictions
Southampton are enjoying a fine run of form at the moment, have won four of their last five games and the other fixture within that run still seeing the Saints accrue one point from a difficult trip to Stamford Bridge following a thrilling 3-3 draw.
Although the Saints have been dealt a blow with the news that star striker Danny Ings is set for a spell on the sidelines, confidence will be high following wins over fellow quick-starters Everton and Aston Villa in the last couple of weeks.
The visitors to St Mary’s Stadium on Friday night are a Newcastle outfit that will be happy to occupy their current position of 11th by the end of the season following a solid if unspectacular start to this unpredictable campaign.
The Magpies have dealt well with the injury problems that they’ve faced and have avoided defeat in all three of thier away matches so far this term, beating West Ham United and earning draws away at Tottenham Hotspur and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Southampton vs Newcastle: Match Stats
Newcastle have scored in the second half in each of their last 5 matches away from home and two or more goals have been scored in the second half in each of their last four Premier League games – plus two of Southampton’s last three.
Danny Ings is the main goal threat for Southampton, but Che Adams has scored twice in the Saints’ last three and will be out to shoulder the goalscoring burden in the absence of the former Liverpool man.
