Betting Tip: @ Newcastle +0.5 @ 11/10 with paddypower

Southampton look distinctly ordinary in the Premier League this season and it’s surprising to find the Saints trading at odds-on to beat Newcastle on Sunday.

The natives are getting restless at St Mary’s, with Mauricio Pellegrino struggling to get a tune out of his squad and Shane Long is unlikely to be available for the home side after sustaining an injury on international duty.

Southampton are struggling to find the net, with the Hampshire side having scored just five times in seven games and they have drawn blanks against Swansea, Wolves, Watford and Manchester United.

There’s the distinct prospect that they won’t find a way to score against Newcastle either, with the Magpies a tough nut to crack as Liverpool can testify.

The Reds took the lead at St James’ Park a fortnight ago although Rafael Benitez’s side scored an equaliser and then defended like warriors to earn a point which sets them up nicely for this clash.

Newcastle lost 1-0 at Brighton previously to this match although that was preceded by a three-match winning run that included victories over West Ham, Swansea and Stoke City.

Benitez remains a master tactician and it should be noted that he worked with Pellegrino at Liverpool, with the latter very much the apprentice and he might be outdone on tactics for this clash.

Newcastle could do with a little more firepower and Joselu doesn’t look like the answer despite his fortunate goal against Liverpool, although the Magpies might only need to score once to win this game.

At the very least, it’s worth a punt on the visitors on the Asian Handicap market although we’re happy to also have a bet on the away victory.
