    Southampton and Newcastle ready to do battle for 8th

    Probable Lineups:

    newcastle southamptonSouthampton(4-2-3-1): Boruc, Chambers, Fonte, Lovren, Shaw, Ward-Prowse, Cork, Lallana, Rodriguez, Davis, Lambert

    Southampton were 2-0 up at White Hart Lane before a Christian Eriksen inspired comeback saw the Saints fall to a  3-2 to Tottenham Hotspur. The loss now sees Mauro Pochettino’s side dwelling in mid-table and their slim hopes of Europa League football fading. Nonetheless, a win for Southampton will see them leapfrog opponents Newcastle to eighth. Defensive midfielder Victor Wanyama and Morgan Schneiderlin both missed the Spurs match with knocks and are looking unlikely to feature again. James Ward-Prowse and Jack Cork look set to start in midfield instead.

    Newcastle United (4-2-3-1): Krul, Yanga-Mbiwa, Coloccini, Williamson, Dummett, Anita, Tioté, Sissoko, de Jong, Gouffran, Cissé

    Papiss Cissé scored a last minute winner last weekend against Crystal Palace but the Tyne-Wear outfit were convincingly beaten 3-0 at home by Everton in mid-week. With Loic Remy injured, the goals seem to have dried up for the Magpies – Newcastle have only score one time in the six games that Remy did not feature. First choice right back Mathieu Debuchy is out with an injury, while left back Davide Santon is ‘touch and go’ for Alan Pardew’s side.  Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa and Paul Dummett will deputise in their absence.

    Fantasy Football Danger Man

    Jay Rodriguez

    Jay Rodriguez continues to make a mockery of his cheap Official Fantasy Premier League price tag (6.9), with his strike against Tottenham in the weekend his third goal in three consecutive games. At home against an out of form Newcastle side, we are backing Rodriguez to hit the net once again.
