After the historic win at Old Trafford last Saturday, next up is a good-looking Southampton side at home on Saturday, and inexperienced sides would tend to lose the game.
Saints manager Mauricio Pochettino – has done well this year
That tends to happen to the average sides in the Premier League, when they have a big win – they then lose to a side they are expected to beat, and Newcastle have done that far too often this season.
But it could be that the team is becoming more professional and more consistent, and in any case Southampton arguably have been the surprise team of the season, and are just one place and 3 points behind Newcastle.
Argentinian Mauricio Pochettino has done well since he was brough in last January as the new manager to replace Nigel Adkins, and has Southampton playing some very good attacking football, both at home and away.
So if the Saints can get a win on Saturday, that would take them above the Magpies in the league table, because they have a superior goal difference.
Let us know how you think the game will go on Saturday.
A win will take Newcastle to 29 points from 16 games, and that would be ahead of the pace we set two years ago.
Howay The Lads!!
