Newcastle United strolled past Southampton with a 4-1 win on Sunday at St. Mary’s Stadium. Soton were looking to get back to winning ways after losing their last match 1-0 to Crystal Palace. Newcastle were hoping to continue their winning streak after back-to-back victories against Aston Villa and Tottenham Hotspur. Soton and Newcastle currently occupy 18th and 3rd spots in the table, with 12 points and 27 points respectively after 15 matches.

Newcastle didn’t take long to get on the score-sheet, when Miguel Almiron opened the rout on the 35 minute mark, ending the first half 1-0.

The Magpies continued to pile on the pressure in the second period and were rewarded, with a goal from Chris Wood, 58 minutes in. Newcastle looked to have the match under control when they scored again to grab the advantage, thanks to a goal from Joseph Willock after 62 minutes to establish a 3-0. However, Soton refused to lie down and managed to pull back a goal from Romain Perraud in the 89th minute. In the end though, The Magpies then grabbed a goal from Bruno Guimaraes just before the full time, leaving the final score at 4-1.

Substitutions for Soton included Romeo Lavia, Samuel Edozie, Joe Aribo, Adam Armstrong and Duje Caleta-Car for Juan Larios, Theo Walcott, Stuart Armstrong, Che Adams and Armel Bella-Kotchap, respectively. Newcastle brought on Chris Wood, Jonjo Shelvey, Allan Saint-Maximin, Javi Manquillo and Elliot Anderson for Callum Wilson, Jacob Murphy, Joseph Willock, Kieran Trippier and Miguel Almiron.

The referee booked Romeo Lavia for Soton.

Soton will next travel to Liverpool, while Newcastle will face Chelsea at home.
