Southampton look to continue their movement up the table when they play host to Newcastle onSaturday. Manager Pochettino will look to Rodriguez, Lallana and Lambert to lead the way . Southampton have been very good at home in recent weeks with four wins, two draws and one loss in their last seven. The Saints have been playing great football under Pochettino, high pressing and high pressure football when not in possession and football on the floor passing their way to the top half of the table. With some good young players coming through such as Luke Shaw and Lallana things are looking bright for Southampton.
Newcastle United will again be without their manager Alan Pardew as he continues his sideline ban for a headbutt in the Magpies away win at Hull. Newcastle have some very talented individuals with Loic Remy, Sissoko, Cisse all capable of winning matches with a piece of individual brilliance. Newcastle though have lost three of their last six away games and Southampton has proven to be a tough place to go for teams this year.
Often with games like this one can over think things. Newcastle have proven themselves to be a tough team to beat this season but I think Southampton will get the better of the magpies here at St Mary's. Southampton have been playing some great football of late and were very unlucky to lose to Tottenham last weekend , I think the Saints get some revenge here on Saturday and I am taking Southampton to win this one.
