Newcastle United host Southampton in the Premier League later today on the Magpies will be hoping to bounce back with a win after their defeat to Crystal Palace last time out.
Meanwhile, Southampton are coming into this game on the back of a 9-0 thrashing against Manchester United and the fans will be expecting a reaction from the players here.

The Magpies have an impressive head to head record against Southampton and they are unbeaten in five of their last six meetings against the Saints.

Predicted Newcastle starting line-up: Darlow, Hayden, Clark, Schar, Lewis, Fraser, Willock, Shelvey, Saint-Maximin, Almiron, Wilson
Jeff Hendrick and Javier Manquillo are expected to drop down to the bench after failing to impress against Crystal Palace.
21-year-old Joe Willock is expected to make his Newcastle debut against the Saints today.
