Newcastle United hosted Southampton earlier this month with a 3-0 victory at St. James Park. The massive victory has proven a great job for manager Rafael Benitez as he try to further lift the spirits of his men.
Kenedy scored twice for the Magpies, with his first coming after just 63 seconds, and Matt Ritchie added the third goal as the hosts eased their relegation fears with a fine win that leaves them four points clear of safety in 13th.
Huddersfield have big problems and are now in a real danger to preserve their top-flight status, having achieved promotion for the first time last season.
The club faced off Crystal Palace but was unfortunately defeated in a 0-2 Premier League clash almost two weeks ago.
Crystal Palace started the game with confidence and eventually paid off with a vital victory that helped manager Roy Hudgson’s men move out of the EPL relegation zone.
Newcastle and Huddersfield have relatively equal fighting strength. We’re predicting that the visitors will be able to frequently steal the ball, whereas, we see Newcastle to display a good quality finishing (Sign Up to get the most comprehensive match preview and Sportsbook betting odds).
