At St. Mary's Stadium
Alan Pardew has made one change to the Newcastle United starting line-up for Saturday's Barclays Premier League fixture at Southampton (3pm kick-off).
And that is the only alteration from United's 3-3 draw against Crystal Palace a fortnight ago.
It means the visitors are expected to start in a 4-2-3-1 formation, with goalkeeper Tim Krul making his 150th appearance for the Club.
And they will be tasked with supplying the ammunition for summer signing Emmanuel Riviere, who starts up top.
On the substitutes' bench there is a first sighting this term of Cheick Tiote, with the Ivorian having returned from international duty unscathed.
Southampton (4-3-3): Fraser Forster; Nathaniel Clyne, Jose Fonte (c), Toby Alderweireld, Ryan Bertrand; Steven Davis, Morgan Schneiderlin, Jack Cork; Shane Long, Graziano Pelle, Dusan Tadic
Substitutes: Kelvin Davis, Maya Yoshida, Florin Gardos, Victor Wanyama, James Ward-Prowse, Sam McQueen, Emmanuel Mayuka
Newcastle United (4-2-3-1): Tim Krul; Daryl Janmaat, Mike Williamson, Fabricio Coloccini (c), Massadio Haidara; Vurnon Anita, Jack Colback; Remy Cabella, Moussa Sissoko, Yoan Gouffran; Emmanuel Riviere
