Southampton vs. Newcastle Team and Injury News:

Southampton are seeking to quickly get over their 3-1 away defeat to West Ham last weekend as they welcome Newcastle United to St. Mary’s, another team looking over their shoulders in the midst of a Premier League relegation battle.

Saints’ flying Malian forward Moussa Djenepo is set to return to the first team after missing last week’s defeat due to a family bereavement.

However, there are two midfield selection headaches for Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl. Stuart Armstrong is a certainty to miss out after suffering a concussion and young midfielder Will Smallbone is also sidelined with an illness.

As for Newcastle, Steve Bruce indicated that winger Allan Saint-Maximin could be available after overcoming a hamstring injury.

Javi Manquillo may feature, having recovered from a torn hamstring.
