Dubravka had collided with Danny Ings in the game, and the club today issued a statement revealing that he would miss Saturday’s Premier League home game against Sheffield United and the club’s FA Cup quarter-final against Manchester City on March 21.

The statement read: “Newcastle United can confirm that Dubravka suffered a knee injury in Saturday's Premier League win at Southampton. The Slovakia international was hurt just before the hour mark at St Mary's, but played on, keeping his ninth clean sheet of the season. He was then assessed on Monday, and has now been ruled out for at least the rest of this month.”

Dubravka, 31, has been an ever-present in the Premier League since joining the club in January 2018.
