Match Preview

Newcastle United

Although they’re still boasting realistic chances of securing a top-four finish in the Premier League for the first time since 2002/03, Newcastle are not relevant in the title race, so going the distance in the Carabao Cup remains a priority at this point.

The Magpies have seemingly had Southampton’s number lately, racking up seven triumphs across their last nine games against the Saints in all competitions (D1, L1), including two this season.

Howe’s effort to guide his side into the final will likely rest on Newcastle’s water-tight backline that has kept a clean sheet in each of their last home outings across all competitions.


After losing three consecutive competitive away matches, Southampton have been victorious on their last two travels via an identical 2-1 scoreline, coming from behind to win on both occasions.

Unfortunately for the Saints, their recent fortunes at St James’ Park cannot inspire much confidence, considering they’ve managed just one win on their last 18 visits to this venue (D4, L13).

If you’re a fan of omens, Southampton have not drawn any of their nine competitive fixtures under Jones, registering four wins and five defeats, with seven of those games featuring a single-goal margin.
