EPL: Aribo, Onuachu Missing As Newcastle Defeat Southampton

Super Eagles duo of Joe Aribo and Paul Onuachu were not in action as Newcastle defeated Southampton 4-1 in Sunday’s Premier League game.


Both players were not in the substitute bench as Newcastle boasted their chances of playing in next season Champions League while Southampton battle to avoid the drop.



Bruno Guimaraes caught in possession on the halfway line and a three on three ended up with a low cross from Southampton’s right put away by Armstrong from six yards out.


England international Wilson entered the field at half time in place of Gordon and was quick to get his side back on level terms when he directed an Isak cross past McCarthy in the Saints net.

Southampton continued to struggle amid waves of Newcastle pressure and their resistance crumbled away in the space of two minutes – a spell which would mean the Saints left the North East with no points.


Sven Botman managed to flick on the ball after a corner kick and it fell to Walcott in the box, who made awful work of his clearance and ended up slicing the ball into his own net – to the absolute dismay of his teammates



Things got even worse for the Premier League’s bottom side soon after, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Jan Bednarek both failing to deal with a hopeful long ball – in truth it was calamitous defending which allowed Wilson to round McCarthy and secure a second-half brace.
