If Newcastle Utd can take one positive out of their 2-0 defeat at Aston Villa last week, it's that they only lost by a couple of goals. The Magpies put in a shambolic performance that suggested the club should be seriously concerned about the season ahead even at this early stage.
Manager Steve Bruce has never been popular on Tyneside, but he risks a full-scale revolt if he can't mastermind a victory against Southampton. The bad news doesn't stop coming for the North-Eastern club. First-choice keeper Martin Dúbravka is expected to be sidelined for another eight weeks, so inexperienced stopper Freddie Woodman will continue between the posts. Woodman has already faced two penalties this season and conceded six goals, and his confidence is naturally ebbing away.
Southampton may not have started the season especially well, with an opening weekend defeat to Everton, but did claim a point at Old Trafford in the second round of fixtures. Summer signing Adam Armstrong missed a handful of decent chances though and the Saints probably feel that the single point could have been all three on another day.
The South coast club will make the long journey north confident it'll be worth the trek. Expect Southampton to have plenty of joy against a Newcastle United backline that leaks goal.
