Allan Saint-Maximin, Ryan Fraser, Kieran Trippier and Matt Ritchie latest: Newcastle United's injury list in full ahead of Southampton

Newcastle United are looking to extend their Premier League unbeaten run to nine matches when they travel to Southampton on Thursday (7:30pm kick-off).

The Magpies are yet to lose a league match in 2022 and boast the best defensive record in the English top flight since the turn of the year. The turnaround in form has seen Eddie Howe’s side climb up to 14th in the table, seven points clear of the relegation zone.

To continue their good form, United will have to get a result against against Southampton at St Mary’s, something they have notoriously struggled to do in the Premier League.

In Premier League 20 visits to Southampton, The Magpies have won just twice – an Allan Saint-Maximin inspired 1-0 win in March 2020 and a 2-1 victory secured by a stunning Stephen Carr strike in 2004.

The Magpies have been handed fitness boosts this week with Matt Ritchie and Ryan Fraser in training but Kieran Trippier and Callum Wilson remain out.
