Speaking ahead of the game, United’s head coach said: “With Alex, we’ve had to be mindful of the fact that he hasn’t had a lot of training time. We’ve backed off his training, and exposed him to the games, but, at some stage, he’ll need that training loan to get back to his very best levels. Allan’s had more training time. I think Allan is in peak physical shape.”

NEWCASTLE UNITED: Pope, Trippier, Schar, Botman, Burn, Longstaff, Guimaraes, Willock, Almiron, Wilson, Joelinton. Subs: Darlow, Lascelles, Saint-Maximin, Ritchie, Lewis, Isak, Manquillo, Murphy, Anderson.

SOUTHAMPTON: Bazunu, Walker-Peters, Lyanco, Caleta-Car, Salisu, Diallo, Djenepo, Ward-Prowse, Orsic, Mara, Alcarez.
