Newcastle United (home) vs. Southampton (away)

Current Records: Newcastle United 5-6-4; Southampton 4-8-3

What to Know

Southampton has enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They and Newcastle United are meeting up for their first leg of the season at 9 a.m. ET on Sunday at St. James' Park. Southampton has kept their last five contests to within one goal, so Newcastle should be prepared for a fight.

Southampton dodged a bullet on Wednesday, finishing off Norwich City 2-1. The Southampton offense checked out after the first half but had enough goals banked to take the contest anyway.

Meanwhile, Newcastle kept a clean sheet against Sheffield United. The Magpies didn't even let Sheffield onto the board and left with a 2-0 win.

Their wins bumped Southampton to 4-8-3 and the Magpies to 5-6-4. We'll see which team can carry over their success and which team inevitably falls when Southampton and the Magpies clash.
