Southampton vs Newcastle Prediction

• Southampton have been quite the mixed bag this season, but manager Ralph Hasenhuttl appears to have steadied the ship on the south coast as they lie in 13th place, 7pts clear of the drop zone. They did however win in their last home game when Aston Villa came to visit. Southampton have the worst home defence in the division, though that is exacerbated by the 0-9 mauling they suffered in October at the hands of Leicester City.

• Newcastle will be buzzing after making it through to the Quarter Finals of the FA Cup in midweek by defeating Championship leaders West Brom 3-2. They will be hoping to eminate this kind of form, as they have not scored a league goal in the last 6 hours of play. They’ve only lost 2 of their last 12 matches though and are proving to be a tough side to break down. They start this match one place below Southampton.

• The league’s worst home defence takes on the league lowest scorers at St Marys, and its anyone’s game really, but considering Southampton have only won 4 out of 14 home games this season, and the handicap looks a little too big here.
