Welcome to my Southampton Vs Newcastle Match Preview, lets take a look at the chances of both sides in this Premier League fixture.
Southampton will be without Danny Ings due to an injury sustained in the fixture with Aston Villa where the Saints won 4-3.
Ings collided with Trezeguet that day and this is what the manager had to say about the injury
“At the moment it looks like he is out for four to six weeks,” Hasenhuettl told a news conference before Friday’s home game against Newcastle United.
“He’ll have a small surgery tomorrow morning. It could be worse, but he’ll be out and it’s not good news for us.
“We are more than Danny Ings. It’s a big loss but it’s important now for other players to give us alternatives.”
Hasenhuettl also said they would be without Ryan Bertrand (hamstring), Jan Bednarek (concussion) and Ibrahima Diallo (dead leg), who were all also injured in the Aston Villa match.
Southampton also scored two incredible free kicks in that fixture from Ward-Prowse and if they get any set pieces against Newcastle this will surely cause issues for the defence.
Newcastle on the other hand have no new injury worries and they have a good player on their hands in the form of Saint-Maxim who will be terrorizing the Saints backline given any opportunity.
The Saints are undefeated in 5 and Newcastle come here after a good win over Everton, with Ings missing however it could take the sting out of their tail and they may be forced to rely on set peices which they wil lget a few shots at no doubt.
I predict a hard fought match here but I think the solid bet has to be both teams to score given the likely openness of the match.
Ward-prowse is worth an anytime goal scorer bet based on the Villa fixture and Saint Maximin also warrants a cheeky anytime goal scorer bet too.
