Newcastle vs Southampton – Premier league – Hold on to win – How to watch instructions & updates

Newcastle vs Southampton

 Ralph Hasenhuttl ironically sent his team out in all red just four days after a Groundhog Day nightmare.  Saints fans were happy to see the return of Jannik Vestergaard and Oriol Romeu, but even more so the debut of Takumi Minamino.  The Japanese International on loan from Liverpool would deliver for his manager as well, with a left-footed strike with such pace it breezed by Karl Darlow at the near post.

Clubs sliding down the Premier League table will go at it Saturday when Newcastle United hosts Southampton in St. James’ Park.
The Magpies, who have fallen to 16th place and found themselves creeping closer to the relegation zone, are coming off a 2-1 setback against Crystal Palace last time out.
On the other side, the Saints would rather forget what happened midweek against Manchester United. Two red cards, including one to Alex Jankewitz in the second minute, led to a 9-0 shellacking at the Red Devils’ hands.
Needless to say, both sides are looking for something positive in this fixture.
However, the visitors were back in the contest on the half-hour when they broke from Jonjo Shelvey’s wayward free-kick and Minamimo deftly controlled Ryan Bertrand’s pass to put himself in behind makeshift defender Isaac Hayden before lashing a rising shot into the roof of the net.
Wilson’s departure with a hamstring injury – full-back Javier Manquillo had already limped off – saw Joelinton join the fray and Southampton, with Ward-Prowse pulling the strings, pressed for an equaliser.
Newcastle will be unable to call upon the services of centre-back duo Jamaal Lascelles and Federico Fernandez, but Bruce has no fresh injury concerns. Allan Saint-Maximin is in line for his first start since 2020 after some eye-catching cameo performances in recent weeks, with Ryan Fraser the man most likely to make way. Newcastle have used a back three and a back four at times this term but look set to opt for the latter here.
Bednarek will be available for Saints after his red card was overturned by the FA on Thursday. Kyle Walker-Peters is expected to return after a couple of weeks on the treatment table, and Oriol Romeu could also be restored to the midfield. Jankewitz, the man who filled Romeu’s usual role at Old Trafford, is banned for three matches.
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.
