Southampton’s run of three games without defeat came to an end with a 2-1 loss at St James’ Park.

This was despite Saints taking the lead and looking the better side for much of the match.

Nathan Redmond had the two best chances of the first-half but was denied on both occasions by Martin Dubravka, the first of which he’d have been very disappointed not to have scored with.

Saints took the lead early in the second-half when a long Jack Stephens ball was picked up by Danny Ings who controlled the ball and calmly finished.

The hosts levelled midway through the half through a great Andy Carroll cross that was headed home by Jonjo Shelvey.

Newcastle then took the lead late on when Sean Longstaff’s long range effort was parried by Alex McCarthy with Federico Fernández finishing the rebound.

This defeat leaves Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side in the relegation zone on goal difference after it looked like they may be moving out for much of the afternoon.
