      Tip Reasoning

      Newcastle United fans are cautiously excited over their chances for the coming season. They have finally seen Mike Ashley put some money towards high end footballers, but obviously the Toon fans don’t have a short memory and won’t be forgetting about Ashley’s controversial reign in a hurry.

      However, should big name signings Georginio Wijnaldum and Alexsandar Mitrovic perform like they did in Holland and Belgium last season, then they should be in for a good season. Defender Chancel Mbemba has also joined to bolster their back line.

      However, it’s likely to take a while for the new players to adapt to the Premier League and gel with their new teammates, so we shouldn’t expect miracles to happen just yet.

      Their friendly performances recently haven’t exactly been great either. They have lost 3 of their last 4 games, including losses to Portland Timbers an York City.

      Southampton have also been pretty active in the transfer market, but unlike Newcastle they already have a solid squad to build upon rather than relying on their new signings.

      Ryan Bertrand has joined permanently after a successful loan spell, and Jordy Clasie, Juanmi, and Cedric Soares have all joined for a combined £18 million. But Morgan Schneiderlin and Nathaniel Clyne will be sorely missed.

      It doesn’t seem to have affected them yet though. They haven’t lost any of their last 6 matches, winning 5 of them. This includes a progression in the Europa League.

      Even better, they have scored 22 goals during this period, conceded 1, and recorded a 5-0 aggregate win over Vitesse in the Europa League.

      We expect that Southampton will put on a strong showing in their match against Newcastle, and despite them being a long way from home on Sunday we think a Southampton +0 Asian Handicap Win at 1.925 are good value.
