Newcastle: Matt Ritchie, Dwight Gayle and Martin Dubravka remain out for Bruce.

Jonjo Shelvey isn’t expected to return to the Toon side until after the November international break. Callum Wilson and Allan Saint-Maximin should once again start up front.

Our prediction: Southampton v Newcastle

These sides have both performed above expectations so far this season, which makes for what could be a pulsating game on Friday night.

Southampton are unbeaten since their 5-2 drubbing at the hands of Tottenham and are averaging over two goals a game from their past five outings.

This, coupled with Newcastle’s leaky defence, suggests the hosts will pinch the contest by outscoring their opponents in a frantic game. Both sides may have found the net by half time.

Our prediction: Southampton 3-2 Newcastle
