Newcastle United v Southampton

Date published: 4/20/2019 5:36:05 PM

Newcastle could cross the 40-point mark with a win over Southampton, who will leapfrog the Magpies with victory at St James' Park.

Paddy Power pre-match odds: Newcastle 6/4, Draw 15/8, Southampton 21/10*

 

Both teams know that one more win should be enough to seal their place in the Premier League for another season, with 15th-placed Newcastle on 38 points and Saints just one place and two points behind their opponents. As speculation continues over his own future, Rafa Benitez has confirmed that he has a near fully-fit squad to select from for Saturday's last game. The Toon boss has revealed that Sean Longstaff is "working again and getting stronger", although the midfielder is not yet ready to return. The other major absentee is Florian Lejeune, after he underwent knee surgery this week.

Meanwhile, Southampton head to Tyneside looking for a fourth win in five Premier League games, but they have failed to scored in their last two matches against Newcastle. Ralph Hasenhuttl will make a late fitness check on centre-back Jannik Vestergaard, who has been forced to sit out training this week due to an issue suffered in the 3-1 win over Wolves. The Saints boss has also revealed that he has concerns over Alex McCarthy, Matt Targett and Charlie Austin, but full-back Yan Valery is fit despite going off injured last week. The reverse clash finished 0-0 at St Mary's back in October, but Newcastle won this fixture 3-0 last season - Kenedy scoring twice and Matt Ritchie bagging the other.

 

Betting Tips 

 

Newcastle picked up a huge win away in Leicester last week to all but cement their place in the Premier League next season.  At the same time, Southampton also seemed to have secure their top tier status when they picked up a 3-1 win over Wolves.  With five points now separating Saints from the drop zone it does feel like the relegation tug of war is now firmly between Brighton and Cardiff. 

Nevertheless, both Saints and the Magpies will be hunting for more points as they aim to finish off the season in style.  This is not an easy game to call as both clubs are enduring mixed results of late and the head to head record not revealing any secrets either. With that in mind, the best bet in this game is to back the draw. The last time these two clubs met, the match ended in a goalless draw. While we certainly don’t hope for a repeat, we may be in store for another tight encounter (hopefully this time with goals).

    Newcastle United 3-1 Southampton

    Date published: 4/21/2019 1:15:07 PM

    Ayoze Perez scored his first hat-trick for Newcastle as the Magpies confirmed their place in the Premier League for next season.

    The Spanish forward, who scored his last hat-trick for former club Tenerife, continued his fine form in the 3-1 win over Southampton.
    Newcastle made a strong start at St James' Park but Miguel Almiron was unable to beat Angus Gunn from a tight angle inside the first 10 minutes.
    The home fans did not have too long to wait for the first goal. Perez picked up possession in the middle of the park before running towards goal and he was able to round Maya Yoshida before finding the bottom corner.
    He made it 2-0 in the 31st minute after Southampton were punished for giving the ball away. Salomon Rondon charged down the left wing before cutting the ball back and Perez was on hand to slide in at the back post before tapping home.
    Ralph Hassenhuttl's men made a good response in the second half and they put pressure on the home side when they found a way through in the 59th minute. Substitute Mario Lemina worked a one-two on the edge of the box with fellow sub Stuart Armstrong before he opened his body to curl a shot into the far corner.
    After a few nervous moments, Newcastle then hit the post as Ki Sung-Yong tried his luck from the edge of the box. Isaac Hayden was then denied by a stunning save from Gunn, while Yoshida went close at the other end after heading over Nathan Redmond's cross.
    In the 86th minute, Southampton cleared two headers - from Mo Diame and Rondon - off the line but just seconds later the hosts killed the game off as Perez celebrated his hat-trick.
    Matt Ritchie's diving header looked like it was going in and Perez's flick made sure as he lapped up the applause from the home crowd.
    In stoppage time Southampton were denied again as Yoshida's header was tipped wide by Martin Dubravka and that allowed Newcastle to celebrate another superb win after confirming their place in the top flight for next season.
