Prediction: Newport County vs Southampton – Football Predictions

Check out our analysis, team news, line-ups and see our prediction for this match.

Southampton will try to claim their first win of the season against Newport County by doing EFL Cup second round on Wednesday evening.

While the Saints go into this game with an excellent point against Manchester United, their hosts have taken two wins from their first three games in the second division.


Prediction for this match

After beating Everton after initially taking the lead at Goodison Park, Ralph Hasenhüttl would have had concerns before Southampton welcomed Man United to St. Mary’s.

However, his young Saints side put on a rousing performance in front of returning fans and had chances to win the game before finally settling for a point.

Tino Livramento made headlines with a daring right-back appearance, however Adam Armstrong continued to impress after joining from Blackburn Rovers.

These two players are likely to be among several to be given a break on Wednesday night, but they have set the standard that the rest of Southampton’s roster should reach.

As for Newport, they will welcome the opportunity to play a game outside of League Two after a positive start to their campaign.

Manager Michael Flynn won’t be present in the dugout after a positive coronavirus test, but that won’t stop him from demanding a performance from his in-form squad.

Notably, this will be Newport’s first home game of the season, with each of their wins away with a 1-0 result.

County messed up the odds by beating Ipswich Town in the previous round, but none of those squads have scored more than one goal this season.

These two clubs are playing against each other for the first time since 1968, Southampton prevailing in that FA Cup tie with an odd five-goal goal.

Despite the possibility that Hasenhüttl will change most of his starting line-up, we still expect a convincing victory for the Saints. Newport have impressed against their Premier League opponents in the past but on that occasion they could struggle to keep up with Southampton.
