The surprising Southampton defeated Newcastle (11th) 2-0 on Friday to become provisional leader of the Premier League, a position that the rojiblanco team had not reached since 1988.
32 Years passed for Southampton to once again lead in England.
The Southampton prevailed with cabbages from Che Adams (7) and Stuart Armstrong (82) and adds 16 points in the standings, tied with Liverpool, although the ‘Saints’ have a better goal difference (+4 to +2).
However, the ‘Reds’ have one less game, which will play on Sunday against Manchester City (10th).
The Southampton could also be overtaken by Leicester (15) or Tottenham (14) if on Sunday they beat Wolverhampton (6th) and West Bromwich (18th) respectively.
