Southampton take on Newcastle at St Marys Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday, as the visitors look for a vital win in their pursuit of safety.

Southampton’s recent mini-revival came to an end with a 1-0 defeat at Premier League leaders Leicester City last time out. A goal from Foxes captain Wes Morgan was enough to secure maximum points for the side from the Midlands.

The defeat means that the Saints are in seventh position and seven points behind fourth-place Manchester City and six behind Manchester United who currently occupy the Europa League spot in the Premier League.

Newcastle suffered a highly-damaging 3-2 defeat at relegation-rivals Norwich last time out in the Premier League. The Canaries took the lead through defender Timm Klose, before substitute Aleksandar Mitrovic equalised.

The home side regained the lead through Dieumerci Mbokani, before Mitrovic equalised from the penalty spot, only for Martin Olsson to clinch the win for Norwich deep-into stoppage-time.

The defeat leaves the Magpies six points adrift of Norwich and safety, but Rafa Benitez’s side do have a game in-hand.

Mitrovic’s form in recent games has been one of the few positives for the side from the north east, as the 21-year-old has now scored three goals in his last two Premier League appearances for the Magpies.

Facts And Figures

These two teams have played 31 times in the Premier League, with Southampton recording 14 wins, Newcastle winning 11 times and also six draws.

Southampton have dominated the 15 Premier League meetings at St Marys Stadium, recording 11 wins. Three games have been drawn and Newcastle have claimed just one win.

Newcastle have not won any of the last five meetings between these two teams in all competitions.

Southampton boss Ronald Koeman has faced the Magpies on two occasions and has claimed wins in both games.

Newcastle have failed to win in their last five Premier League games and lost four games in the process. Newcastle have also lost their last eight away games in the Premier League.

Team Selection And News

The home side are relatively injury-time free at the moment. The only prospective absentees from the squad are Romanian defender Florin Gardos and striker Shane Long, who are both doubts following injuries.

Newcastle have a whole host of injury problems. First and second choice ‘keepers Tim Krul and Rob Elliot will miss the rest of the campaign through injury, so Karl Darlow will continue in goal for the Magpies.

The Magpies are also with full-backs Massadio Haidara and Paul Dummett through injury and midfielder Jack Colback through suspension. Fabricio Coloccini is also a major injury doubt for the side from the north east. Aleksandar Mitrovic is likely to start up front in place of Papiss Cisse.

Possible Southampton Team Selection

Forster, Cedric, Fonte, Van Dijk, Bertrand, Clasie, Wanyama, Davis, Mane, Tadic, Pelle

Possible Newcastle Team Selection

Darlow, Janmaat, Mbemba, Taylor, Anita, Tiote, Shelvey, Sissoko, Wijnaldum, Townsend, Mitrovic

Match Prediction

Southampton have not been that consistent in the Premier League of late, but Newcastle arrive on the south coast with a terrible away record and morale at rock-bottom. I cannot see anything other than a home victory in this clash.
