Newcastle United host Southampton in the Premier League later today and will be hoping to get back to winning ways.
The Magpies have lost their first two Premier League matches against West Ham United and Aston Villa.
They also crashed out of the Carabao Cup after a penalty shoot-out defeat to Burnley earlier this week,
The players are under pressure to bounce back strongly and grind out a win at home.
Southampton picked up a draw against Manchester United in their last outing and will fancy their chances of a win here.
Newcastle have an impressive home record against Southampton, winning their last four matches against today’s opposition.
The away side will have to improve defensively if they want to secure a victory.
They head into this game on the back of six straight away defeats, conceding at least two goals in each game during that run.
Steve Bruce is likely to make four changes to the side beaten by Burnley.
Callum Wilson, Matt Ritchie, Jacob Murphy and Federico Fernandez should return, with Jamal Lewis, Emil Krafth, Joelinton and Jeff Hendrick likely to be dropped.
Newcastle United Predicted XI (3-5-2): Freddie Woodman; Ciaran Clark, Jamaal Lascelles, Federico Fernandez; Matt Ritchie, Jacob Murphy, Sean Longstaff, Miguel Almiron, Joe Willock; Allan Saint-Maximin, Callum Wilson.
