Overturned: Jan Bednarek to play against Newcastle after red card was overturned on appeal

Southampton injury news: New signing could play, Saints still ravaged by injury

Newcastle team news: New signing could play against Saints, but three out injured


Newcastle United vs Southampton team news

Southampton will be desperate to bounce back from their unfortunate and somewhat controversial 9-0 midweek defeat to Manchester United.

Saints continue to have a series of players missing as injury has depleted the playing options open to manager Ralph Hasenhuttl.

Defender Jannik Vestergaard and Kyle Walker-Peters are nearing a return according to the Saints manager, but are unlikely to feature today.

Oriol Romeu is back in training but is also a doubt, whereas the status of Ibrahima Diallo and Theo Walcott is unknown.

Stuart Armstrong is definitely unavailable after picking up a muscle problem in the week.

Some tangible good news is that Jan Bednarek is available after his red card picked up against Manchester United was overturned on appeal.

Takumi Minamino could feature against Newcastle after joining from Liverpool on loan in the January transfer window.

Newcastle manager Steve Bruce also has some injury concerns - particularly in defence.

Defenders Federico Fernandez, Jamaal Lascelles, Jamal Lewis and Paul Dummett are all fitness doubts for the Magpies.

Ciaran Clark could also be unavailable after his partner went into labour.

Meanwhile, new loan signing Joe Willock - who joined Newcastle from Arsenal in January - is expected to play a role today.
