Joelinton will be desperate to get his first goal at St James’. The Brazilian centre-forward is 6/1 to open the scoring and 5/2 to score anytime.

Allan Saint-Maximin meanwhile got his first goal for the club on Thursday. He is 9/1 to score first and 7/2 to score anytime,

Danny Ings meanwhile has been in fantastic form for Southampton. He is 7/2 to break the deadlock and 7/5 to continue his streak.

James Ward-Prowse has also been amongst the goals. He is 17/2 to open the scoring and 7/2 to net in 90 minutes.

Newcastle’s fine form continues.

On Thursday night, they travelled to Bramall lane and, it’s fair to say, it was a smash and grab victory.

Allan Saint-Maximin’s header opened the scoring just 15 minutes into the game; his first goal for the club.

Then, mid-way through the second half, there was much confusion.

A long ball forward was flicked on by Andy Carroll to Jonjo Shelvey.

The referee’s assistant raised his flag for an offside against Carroll but referee Stuart Attwell did not whistle so Shelvey strolled through and calmly slotted the ball into the net.

After video review, the offside was overturned and the goal was given.

That secured a very impressive and unexpected 2-0 win for the travelling Toon Army.

Overall, Steve Bruce’s side have now amassed 14 points from their last eight games.

In that time, they have beaten West Ham, Bournemouth and Manchester United as well as drawing with Wolves and Manchester City

This has lifted the Magpies up to 11th, five points above the relegation zone and just four points below fifth.

Will they extend their run to seven consecutive home matches unbeaten?

Will the Saints march into a win?

As for Southampton, they too have found some form just when they needed it.

This past week was always going to be crucial as they hosted the other two sides in the relegation zone, Watford and then Norwich.

Firstly, last weekend, late goals from Danny Ings and then a stunning free-kick from James Ward-Prowse saw the Saints come from a goal down to beat Watford 2-1.

Then, on Wednesday, Ings opened the scoring before a Ryan Bertrand tap-in helped them to another 2-1 victory.

Back to back wins for Ralph Hasenhüttl’s side for the first time since March.

Those six points have lifted them out of the relegation zone with Everton dropping in.

However, they are far from clear of danger and need more points.

Will they get their third away victory of the campaign?

After a very impressive win in mid-week, Steve Bruce will be reluctant to change much.

On the other hand, their last game was as recently as Thursday so he may make a couple of changes.

Goalkeeper Martin Dúbravka was the hero in that win, making a string of impressive saves.

In fact, only two goalkeepers have made more saves than the Slovakian international.

The defence in front of him is likely to be the same for the third time in eight days.

Ciaran Clark, Federico Fernández and Paul Dummet will continue as the three centre-backs.

Captain Jamaal Lascelles is injured and Fabian Schär will be left on the bench.

At wing-back, Jetro Willems will continue on the left.

On the other side Javier Manquillo will keep his place over Emil Krafth; DeAndre Yedlin is out with a hip problem.

Jonjo Shelvey and Isaac Hayden will be the midfield partnership with the Longstaff brothers, Sean and Matty, on the bench once again.

It’s been a good week for the two men out-wide.

Last weekend, Miguel Almirón registered his first assists for the Magpies but is still awaiting his first goal.

The same can no longer be said about Allan Saint-Maximin after he opened the scoring at Bramall Lane.

Both are likely to continue to be a threat.

Bruce has a decision to make up front.

Andy Carroll started a Premier League game for Newcastle for the first time since 28 December 2010 on Thursday.

However, it is unlikely that he has the fitness to start twice in three days so Joelinton will come back in.

Will Newcastle’s strong home form continue?

Southampton team news vs Newcastle United

James Ward-Prowse

As for Southampton, they too are unlikely to change much given their good recent form.

Alex McCarthy will continue in goal; he displaced Angus Gunn after the 9-0 home defeat to Leicester.

In defence, Cédric Soares and Ryan Bertrand will continue at full-back.

Likewise, the centre-backs are likely to stay the same with Jan Bednarek and Jack Stephens preferred to Kevin Danso, Jannik Vestergaard and Maya Yoshida.

The rest of the team too will be unchanged from Wednesday.

James Ward-Prowse, who now has four goals and three assists will continue in the deeper midfield position alongside captain Pierre-Emile Højbjerg.

Further forward, will be Nathan Redmond and Moussa Djenepo; Stuart Armstrong is still out with a hamstring injury and Sofiane Boufal is a doubt.

Up front will be the in-form Danny Ings who has scored ten goals already this season.

Alongside him will be Shane Long who’s last ten Saints goals have come in his last 92 appearances for the club.

Will Southampton win three consecutive Premier League games for the first time since May 2016?
