TEAM NEWS: Southampton missing up to 5 players including Danny Ings

TEAM NEWS: Newcastle reportedly have 4 players out with injury


Southampton vs. Newcastle team and injury news

Southampton are unbeaten in their last five games and find themselves sitting fifth in the Premier League table after recent form has overcome a poor start to the season.

Similarly, Newcastle are doing well in the league. Steve Bruce has led his men to accruing 11 points from seven games and are just two points below Saints in the English top flight.

Saints’ talismanic striker Danny Ings is out with a knee injury.

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has further selection headaches due to the fitness of Jan Bednarek, Ryan Bertrand and Ibrahima Diallo. All of those aforementioned players picked up knocks in Saints’ 4-3 win over Aston Villa last week.

Newcastle are missing Jonjo Shelvey, Martin Dubravka, Matt Ritchie and Dwight Gayle due to injury.

However, Matty Longstaff, Paul Dummett and Ciaran Clark are in contention to play their first games of the season after returning to training.
