Bruce will continue with four at the back with Federico Fernandez in for Fabian Schar. It’s almost the same team that drew 0-0 against Burnley last weekend. However, Allan Saint-Maximin comes in for Joelinton.
Both Dwight Gayle and Matt Ritchie get the nods at striker and right wing while Jonjo Shelvey and Isaac Hayden return to the midfield. It’s a very strong bench with Joelinton and Valentino Lazaro available if necessary.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has selected the following team for Southampton.

Newcastle haven’t hit the back of the net for four straight in the Premier League. However, they put three by West Brom on Tuesday evening.
Hopefully, that will spark the lads in front of goal this afternoon at St Mary’s.
Howay The Lads!
