IT was a mixed night for Greg but he was delighted with the events at Newcastle that resulted in an amazing finish.
He says: “Was unlucky over the last few nights falling a goal short on my over 2.5 goals trebles. Arsenal was frustrating especially being 2-0 after 26 minutes and then missing loads of chances. Newcastle ensured the night wasn’t a wipeout – Twitter’s awash with screenshots of people backing Newcastle to win at 400-1 with minutes to play. Why would you do that?
Hapoel Beer Sheva v Southampton (6pm)
The bookies I feel have got this match completely wrong. They have priced up the Isralies at 5-2 which is a massive price for a team who went to the San Siro and defeated Inter Milan 2-0 on matchday one and who rarely lose at home. Don’t forget they beat Celtic here 2-0 narrowly missing out on the Champions League proper 5-4 on aggregate. The fact Southampton have left half of their main players at home tells you were their priorities lie (Sunday’s league match). Southampton have had a terrific month but I don’t see them leaving Israel with any points against a strong Hapoel side.

Always a risk putting all your eggs in one basket but this is a tough ask for a weakened Southampton side.
