Newcastle v Southampton: How to watch Premier League on TV and live stream

Newcastle could secure their status as a Premier League team for next season this weekend. Southampton have won three of their last four games to claw their way out of immediate danger, but they will be determined to move away from 16th place this weekend. RadioTimes.com has rounded up everything you need to know about how to watch the Newcastle v Southampton game on TV and online. What time is the Newcastle v Southampton game? Paul Merson predicts Newcastle v Southampton – Claims £5.7m is the motivation Despite winning three of their last four games, the fact remains that is everything went wrong for them this weekend, the Saints could find themselves only two points above the relegation zone.

It is unlikely but it is possible and the end of season games tend to throw up plenty of surprises, teams such as Cardiff fighting for their lives. After only one win in their previous 31 Premier League games, with five games to go the Baggies then won at Old Trafford, drew against Liverpool, came and beat Newcastle at St James Park and beat Tottenham. It was five home wins in a row with 12 goals scored before Palace went away with three points after scoring with their only shot on target. Whilst Southampton have 11 goals and four wins in their last six (home and away) games, so you can see where Paul Merson has got his 2-2 prediction from. Paul Merson comes up with another angle as motivation for winning: '…there is still plenty to play for in terms of money for the club – moving up three positions can bring in millions of pounds.

Merson may have a small point as this could be seen as extra motivation for the Newcastle players, as the bonus scheme the NUFC squad have, sees an extra £1m shared between the squad for every extra place up the league. Manchester City host Tottenham again on Saturday lunchtime - less than three days after Spurs knocked them out of the Champions League - but who will win this time? BBC football expert Mark Lawrenson said: "City will have a point to prove, so I don't think Wednesday's result was good news for Liverpool. Premier League predictions - week 35 Result Lawro RED SATURDAY Man City v Tottenham x-x 2-0 2-0 Bournemouth v Fulham x-x 3-0 2-1 Huddersfield v Watford x-x 1-1 0-1 West Ham v Leicester x-x 2-1 1-0 Wolves v Brighton x-x 2-0 1-0 Newcastle v Southampton x-x 2-1 1-0 SUNDAY Everton v Man Utd x-x 0-2 1-0 Arsenal v Crystal Palace x-x 2-0 1-0 Cardiff v Liverpool x-x 0-2 0-2 MONDAY Chelsea v Burnley x-x 2-0 2-0 Surely City won't be as open in this game as they were on Wednesday night - they cannot afford to invite any more chaos this time. City have got enough players who can go and win them the game without being so gung-ho about it, and I thought they missed the Brazilian midfielder in that crazy opening spell when Son Heung-min scored twice.

So I would expect Fernandinho to start on Saturday and, if he is patrolling those deep midfield areas, I think City will control the game this time far better than they did in midweek. Watford will feel they should have got something out of Monday's game against Arsenal - and they surely would have done if they had not been down to 10 men for 80 minutes. West Ham will be far more open, which will suit Leicester, but if the Hammers play like they did against Manchester United last time out, I think they will come out on top. They are out of the FA Cup and without a point or a goal in their past four league games, and it is hard to see them turning things around at Molineux. This is a bad time to be on such a poor run, and Brighton's run-in, which sees them play Tottenham, Newcastle, Arsenal and Manchester City next, does not exactly bode well for them to turn things around.

Newcastle v Southampton (17:30 BST) Everton's defeat at Fulham was a strange result, and came just as they were starting to look like a much better team. It was probably their worst result of the season, especially if you consider the form they were in when they went into the game. Last weekend, Lawro got seven correct results including two perfect scores from 10 games, for a total of 130 points. He beat golfer Matt Fitzpatrick, who got four correct results including one perfect score, for a total of 70 points. Lawro also made a prediction for Cardiff's 2-0 win at Brighton on Tuesday, but backed the Seagulls to win 1-0 so did not score any extra points.
