Unlucky in their defeat at the hands of Manchester United, Southampton need some points on the board.

Today they come up against a tough Newcastle (k-o 4.00pm) who managed to take a point from Liverpool in their last game.

The South Coast side will have to be smart against the Geordies, although they’re strengthened at the back with much-wanted defender Virgil van Dijk back from his long-term injury.

But can strikers Long and Gabbiadini step up at the front?
