Team news: Gayle starts at St. Mary's

Written by Rory Mitchinson

Dwight Gayle will lead the line for Newcastle United as the Magpies look to end their four-game run without a goal in the Premier League at Southampton today.

Gayle dropped to the bench for Tuesday night’s dramatic FA Cup victory at West Bromwich Albion but returns to today’s starting XI at the expense of Joelinton, with Allan Saint-Maximin keeping his place in the side.

Steve Bruce has again opted for a 4-2-3-1 formation at St. Mary’s, with Saint-Maximin joined by Miguel Almirón and Matt Ritchie in attacking midfield. Behind the trio, Isaac Hayden and Jonjo Shelvey both return, with Nabil Bentaleb and Sean Longstaff dropping to the bench.

Javier Manquillo – a slight doubt ahead of the Magpies’ trip to the South Coast – has been passed fit to start, with the Spaniard lining up alongside Jamaal Lascelles, Federico Fernández and Danny Rose at the back.

And in goal, Martin Dúbravka continues his record of having started every game for Newcastle in the Premier League this season.

Newcastle United: Martin Dúbravka, Javier Manquillo, Jamaal Lascelles, Federico Fernández, Danny Rose, Isaac Hayden, Jonjo Shelvey, Matt Ritchie, Allan Saint-Maximin, Miguel Almirón, Dwight Gayle.

Substitutes: Karl Darlow, DeAndre Yedlin, Fabian Schär, Nabil Bentaleb, Sean Longstaff, Valentino Lazaro, Joelinton.
