Newcastle welcome a Southampton side to St James’ Park on Saturday that were embarrassed 9-0 by Manchester United in their previous outing – and are out to rid themselves of that nightmare.
But three points may not come so easy for Saints on Tyneside, with Newcastle themselves seeking a morale boost following Tuesday’s 2-1 loss to Crystal Palace.
The Toon are edging towards a relegation battle after winning just one of their last 11 Premier League fixtures.
Southampton are considered safe from the drop unless the loss at Old Trafford triggers a major downturn in form.
It took Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men four outings to recover from the 9-0 loss inflicted upon them by Leicester back in October 2019 and Saints would probably take a goalless draw from this encounter.

Newcastle v Southampton team news
Newcastle: Jamaal Lascelles is an injury concern after missing Tuesday’s loss to Crystal Palace with a thigh injury, while Federico Fernandez is unlikely to be passed fit for the weekend.
Bruce could opt to start Allan Saint-Maximin here, although Dwight Gayle will hope for a nod too. Andy Carroll is likely to remain on the bench.
Southampton: Alexandre Jankewitz and Jan Bednarek are suspended for this tie, while Jannik Vestergaard, Mohamed Salisu, William Smallbone, Theo Walcott, Michael Obafemi and Nathan Tella are all ruled out with injury.
Hasenhuttl will wait on late fitness tests for Ibrahima Diallo, Oriol Romeu and Kyle Walker-Peters. However, it’s clear the boss has selection dilemmas with Saints carrying more injuries and suspensions than any other team in the Premier League right now.

Our prediction: Newcastle v Southampton
Newcastle may be enduring miserable form of late but they have been competitive in their last three outings and convincingly beat Everton 2-0 last weekend.
Boss Bruce needs the spark that Saint-Maximin provides and the 23-year-old could be due a start here.
Saints may still be reeling from the defeat to Manchester United and their injury and suspension list is worrying. Newcastle won’t get a better chance to add three points to their season tally and the Toon should get the job done.
