The last time Newcastle beat Southampton, it was 4-2, the names Cissé, Sissoko, and Cabaye featured on the score sheet.

Newcastle is without a win in their last 6 matches with Southampton, not having beaten the Saints since February 24th, 2013. Goals during this winless streak have been scored by Andros Townsend, Papiss Cissé, Georginio Wijnaldum, and Yoan Gouffran. None of these players are in the club today.

Southampton have underwent some change as well.
