Saints to make Magpies pay

Rafael Benitez

Newcastle United have still to win this season and look unlikely to get anything from today’s trip to Southampton.

Southampton to win @ 11/10

A miserable summer transfer window has inevitably sparked an abject start to the campaign, with the Magpies bottom of the Premier League with just two points to their name.

Rafael Benitez has been doing his best to talk up his side but one wonders how much more he can take from the board.

Saints only have one win themselves but were much improved in last Sunday’s 0-0 draw at Bournemouth and arguably should have taken the victory.

They have failed to win 14 of their last 15 at home but today presents the perfect chance to improve that run against a listless Toon outfit.

Bournemouth to win @ 27/20

Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth have impressed this season and can extend their unbeaten run to three games when they visit Fulham.

The Cottagers spent big in the summer but Slavisa Jokanovic is still searching for his best formation and his side’s tally of 25 goals conceded is the worst in the Premier League by some distance.

That inability to defend opens them up to counter-attacking sides like today’s visitors and the Cherries can take advantage in what should be an entertaining encounter, with over 3.5 goals 13/10.

Levante to win @ 23/20

Three straight victories have seen Levante shoot up the La Liga table and they can extend their run against Leganes.

Los Pepineros have failed to win any of their last 20 away matches in La Liga, although Mauricio Pellegrino has seen positives from their recent outings.

Home advantage should count though so back Las Granotas for more glory.
