Newcastle remain stuck in the relegation zone, and while they are just two points from safety, 17th-placed Watford have two games in hand on them, so Eddie Howe will know the value of wins at this stage of the season, and in Southampton he faces a side the Magpies have lost just one of their last nine league games against.

It was an encouraging result last time out for Newcastle, claiming a point off Manchester United, and in truth, outplaying the 13-time Premier League champions, but a sour taste was left in the mouth of Howe as Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin were both withdrawn with injuries, ruling them out here.

So, his job of steering Newcastle to safer waters has taken a turbulent detour, and while it is increasingly apparent that the club’s new owners will spend in the January transfer window, signings will not make a difference in this contest, where the Saints are enjoying a bit of good form of late.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men have lost just once in their previous six Premier League games — a 3-0 loss to Arsenal — claiming the scalp of West Ham in that time, and collecting excellent points against Tottenham, Leicester, Crystal Palace and Brighton. Another result here could set them up for a good year.

Southampton vs Newcastle: Match Stats

James Ward-Prowse is playing like a man possessed in recent outings. He is looking to score in four consecutive Premier League games for the first time in his career, and he faces a Newcastle side against whom he has netted in each of his last two games against.

Long-rangers are his speciality, so Howe would be wise to man-mark the Saints skipper when he gravitates towards the penalty area. In fact, only Kevin De Bruyne (14) has scored more goals from outside the area than Ward-Prowse (12) since the 2017/18 Premier League season.

Southampton may also target the skies. Only six teams have scored more set-piece goals than them (six), while only West Ham (112), Chelsea (133), Liverpool (153) and Man City (173) have registered more corners than them (109) — they are the only sides to rack up triple digits for corners this campaign.
