Southampton vs. Newcastle United: Premier League – Match Preview

A win for Southampton over Newcastle United on Friday evening would see them take a surprise early lead of the Premier League!

Southampton have claimed 13 points from their last five games and held on in a thriller with Aston Villa last weekend.

James Ward-Prowse scored two free-kicks as the Saints went 4-0 up, before Villa pulled three late goals back.

Newcastle United are another side who have made a decent start to the season and they edged past Everton last Sunday.

Callum Wilson scored another brace to leave Newcastle just a couple of points adrift of a Champions League spot.
