The Premier League is back in action this weekend as Newcastle United take on Southampton at the St. James' Park on Saturday. Both teams have been fairly inconsistent this season and will want to take it up a notch in this match.

Newcastle United are currently in 16th place in the Premier League standings and have struggled to meet expectations this season. The Magpies suffered a 2-1 defeat against Crystal Palace in their previous game and have a point to prove going into this game.

Southampton have been impressive this season but suffered a shocking 9-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester United this week. The Saints are at a low point at the moment and are in desperate need of a boost of morale.


Newcastle United vs Southampton Head-to-Head

Newcastle United and Southampton are on an even footing as far as the historical head-to-head record is concerned and have played 101 games against each other. Southampton have won 38 matches as opposed to Newcastle United's 40 victories and will want to cut the deficit this weekend.

The previous meeting between the two teams took place last November and ended in a 2-0 victory for Southampton. Che Adams scored on the day and will play an important role in this match.
