Southampton v Newcastle United: Kick-off time, TV details and the latest team news
Newcastle make the long trip to the south coast to face Southampton this week, aiming to make it six wins in their last seven games.
However, facing them will be a Southampton side out for revenge following their 4-0 defeat to Aston Villa at the weekend.
That loss ended Southampton’s seven game unbeaten run in all competitions, one that included draws with both Manchester teams and a win over Tottenham Hotspur.
This fixture was initially scheduled to take place on January 2, 2022, however, the game was postponed because of rising Covid-19 cases in the Newcastle United squad.
The first meeting between the sides was an entertaining 2-2 draw with James Ward-Prowse rescuing a late-point for Southampton after Allan Saint-Maximin had appeared to win the game at the death for Newcastle.
Here, we take a look at everything you need to know about Newcastle United’s trip to Southampton.
