Newcastle vs Southampton by Mudhara_9er
Most bookies and stats will not back this tip but this is why i do. Southampyon sit 3rd coming into this game, with their last 5 premier league games consiting of wins against top four candidates Everton, Arsenal and Man U, while drawing against league favourites Chelsea this is surely witness to a team on a mission and in good moral. Apart from a very dissappointing december the side have stayed consistant, their football is good too.
Newcastle let their head coach Pardew leave and in the last 3 games under their caretaker coach Carver the side are yet to win but today they play at home where they have won 3 drawn 1 and lost 1 against a team with a midweek fixture in their legs as well a make shift midfield. Newcastle will have a good chance at collecting points especially with Wanyama out.
Newcastle have failed to score in their last two matches and coming up against the leagues best defence they look to be in problems, but at home they have been scoring. 3/5 matches have ended with btts and over 2 goals, while Southampton have conceeded in 3/5 away games.
H2H 3/4 of their last games have ended with over 2,5 goals, Southampton winning the last two 4-0.
I don't expect Southampton to play as defensive as they did at Old Trafford and this will give Newcastle a fair amount of chances.
