Former Man City and England full-back Danny Mills

606 football phone-in on Radio 5 live

"Louis van Gaal must have told Falcao to up his game or he wouldn't keep him on come the end of the season, and wouldn't keep paying him a fortune."

Former Tottenham and Stoke striker Garth Crooks

Final Score

"Falcao worked really hard, looked hungry and sharp and held up the ball well to bring others into play. On another day he could have had a hat-trick. Very impressive."

Son Lyme: So much for the mass-movement of protest at Villa Park. I'm proud of our support, and our club. Gil looks a player too. Up the Villa.

Atif Asif: How does Louis van Gaal not see that United work better with 4-4-2 diamond? Wilson and Falcao's partnership was very impressive, with pace and movement.

Donald Oluoch: Another clean sheet for Petr Cech. Goal difference might be vital come the end of the season. In a nutshell, Chelsea's form is back.

Manager reaction

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Newcastle caretaker manager John Carver on the penalty decision after Jose Fonte handled the ball in the penalty area: "It was an absolutely stonewall penalty. If he had his arms by his side you could argue it was ball to hand but his arms are an L-shape

"Big decisions can cost people livelihoods and jobs but more importantly points."

Manager reaction

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Newcastle caretaker manager John Carver on his future at the club: "It's exactly the same as it was before the game. There's been no talks and whether there will be in the next 48 hours I'll decide with the club.

"We haven't won a game and you need to win games. The crowd are waiting on a decision and the club has to make that soon.

"They have to do something. We don't deserve to drift away. The fans won't put up with that and something has to be done."

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Neil Williams: Southampton continue to amaze this season. They've been brilliant so far. What I'd give for Aston Villa to be doing the same.

Alexandre Tynemouth: Sick of supporting a club going nowhere. Southampton are everything Newcastle could and should be.

Rian Hoskins: Eljero Elia has had some criticism over his attitude but with Ronald Koeman's faith in him, he could thrive at Southampton as shown today.

Stat attack

Here's one for you to put out there and impress your mates at the pub tonight - only one date in Premier League history has seen more away wins than today's six - New Year's Day in 1994, when eight away teams won.

Manager reaction

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

More from Southampton manager Ronald Koeman: "When I got the question pre-season, if they said to me after 22 games you would be third maybe I would be laughing. But we don't steal points, we play good football. Of course you need some luck but the spirit is unbelievable, and the confidence, like you saw today, they are confident in themselves. They know exactly what they have to do, and even when we do not play well we keep the organisation and that is the key to being successful."

On Newcastle's claims for a penalty in injury time. "Maybe it was a penalty I don't see it exactly, but I think we deserved the win. There was fantastic spirit in the team, the key to winning is the confidence we are showing on the pitch."

On young midfielder Harrison Reed "He is doing fantastic, a few months ago he was running too much but he is now more calm and is being aggressive in midfield, winning the second ball. It is not always about playing football, sometimes you need a player in that position to keep the balance in the team and he did that fantastic."

Manager reaction

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman, speaking to BBC Sport: "It's fantastic. Maybe for everybody it was lovely to win at Old Trafford but maybe this win today is more important and I am still more proud of the players because it was the third game this week. They showed incredible ambition and spirit, even after a difficult start, and after 1-0 we were more comfortable on the pitch. The win was well deserved."

On loan signing Eljero Elia, who scored twice today. "I knew the player and I asked myself a lot of times what has happened, because he played in the World Cup final. First the system of the team is important, how he played today is the best. Also every player needs confidence of the coach. Maybe he was lacking the rhythm of the game but his answer today was fantastic."

"Rock solid at the back"

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Former England defender Danny Mills

Football Focus

"Southampton's defence is rock solid. Nathaniel Clyne and Ryan Bertrand are great at attacking but are great defenders too. Jose Fonte and Florin Gardos, I love their decision making. There is a time to play and bring it down and a time to just get your foot through it. They do both so well and are well organised and very difficult to break down. Undoubtedly Ronald Koeman has played a big part in that."

Graeme Dawson: NUFC Head Coach job needs sorted out or we are potentially in trouble! 8 points off bottom 3 as isn't comfortable

It has been a good day to be an away fan, look at all these away wins in the Premier League! Only Tottenham were able to send their fans home completely happy and even then it took an 88th minute goal.

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Southampton forward Eljero Elia, speaking to Sky Sports: On running over to celebrate with manager Ronald Koeman after scoring the opening goal. "I wanted to thank Ronald Koeman to have given me the chance to play for Southampton. He was the only one who believed in me, and all the players here have helped me since the first moment I arrived."

Player reaction

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Southampton captain Jose Fonte, speaking to Sky Sports: On Newcastle's penalty claim in injury time: "It was so quick and so close I had no reaction. I have to see it but there was no intention of making handball of course.

"We arrived here so tired, we had three tough games away. We spent the week in hotels and travelling, so for us to come here and put in this massive effort it means the world. Thank you to the fans who have followed us.

"We don't think about where we are going to be at the end, we move on to the next game. There are 16 games to go, and we will take each one, one by one."

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Former Newcastle defender John Anderson

BBC Radio Newcastle at St James' Park

"It could have gone either way. For me there wasn't a great deal in it but Newcastle did not create enough. They don't seem to have somebody who wants to be in there to put the ball in the back of the net, somebody who wants to score goals. We've been saying all season that when the transfer window opens the club needs to sign somebody, but it doesn't look like it's going to happen."

FULL-TIME

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Will the Southampton train ever run out of steam? Five wins from six now and they are back up to third after Manchester United briefly kept the position warm for them this afternoon.

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

That's got to have been Newcastle's big chance? Boos are stilling ringing out around the stadium at that decision not to award a penalty.

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Former Newcastle defender John Anderson

BBC Radio Newcastle at St James' Park

"Seeing it from a distance it looked like the ball hit Jose Fonte on the chest, but after seeing the replay I think it's handball and a penalty."

PENALTY APPEAL

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Big shout for a penalty as Emmanuel Riviere's shot strikes the arm of Jose Fonte. Newcastle players are fuming and head straight to the referee, they want a penalty, referee is having none of it but he looks to have got that decision wrong.

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Shane Long is OK and off we go again. Mike Williamson creeps into the Newcastle attack, the hosts are throwing everything forward.

Final four

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Shane Long is down receiving treatment as the game ticks into the 90th minute, having taken a knock when challenging for the ball. Four minutes of stoppage time.

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

There is a lot more zip about Newcastle but has it come too late? Remy Cabella tries to skip inside Harrison Reed but the Southampton man does well to shrug him off and end the attack.

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Matt Targett 's introduction means Southampton are shoring up their defence for the final few minutes, hoping to further stifle Newcastle's attack. It is a tactic that is inviting pressure at the moment though as Remy Cabella shoots wide, before Newcastle win a corner - their eighth of the game. It comes to nothing, but Newcastle retain possession.

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Eljero Elia has had a great game but he won't get the chance to score his hat-trick as Ronald Koeman decides to give Matt Targett a run out for the final few minutes.

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

John Carver makes his final Newcastle change as Mike Williamson comes on for Paul Dummett. Williamson had a torrid time in the 4-0 defeat at Southampton back in September, can he make amends today?

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Former Newcastle defender John Anderson

BBC Radio Newcastle at St James' Park

"A great ball in from Nathaniel Clyne, he has been impressive again today and did really well to dig out that cross. Graziano Pelle did everything right - it wasn't the easiest of headers - and beats Tim Krul, only to see the ball come back off the crossbar."

HITS THE WOODWORK

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Graziano Pelle must really hate the goalframe! Five times already this season he has hit the woodwork and he does so again with a header from Nathaniel Clyne's cross.

CLOSE!

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Paul Dummett gets up for a corner, free header, but plants it wide when he should have hit the target. A big chance for Newcastle that one.

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Newcastle are yet to test Fraser Forster in the Southampton goal in this half but the arrival of Sammy Ameobi and Emmanuel Riviere has spiced things up a little bit. Ameobi harrying Southampton defenders out of position before Riviere wins a corner, but it comes to nothing. Just over 15 minutes for the hosts to find an equaliser...

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Newcastle need to do something and that something is make a double substitution. Sammy Ameobi and Emmanuel Riviere come on for Yoan Gouffran and Vurnon Anita. Riviere goes up top with Ameobi wide left. Can either of them mirror Shane Long's impact?

Pearce points of view

Ade: Whatever it is that brought on the Danny Mills rant, and whether he has a point or not, it all looks very petty. Stuart Pearce may not be 'great', but how many mangers are? Danny just ends up looking a little bitter, and it doesn't help that a lot of people will always have a soft spot for Pearce. Images like the one of him after his penalty v Spain in 1996 don't leave your memory quickly.

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Former Newcastle defender John Anderson

BBC Radio Newcastle at St James' Park

"In the first half we spoke about Graziano Pelle and his prowess in the air, all of a sudden Shane Long climbs to do the same. Daryl Janmaat has to put his foot through it though - stick it in the East Stand. It's a decent little finish from Eljero Elia, but Janmaat has to get the ball away."

YELLOW CARD

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton

Again, slightly harsh on Newcastle after just about shading matters so far in this half. They try to hit back quickly but Steven Davis disrupts play with a bit of shirt pulling and he is booked as a result.

GOAL

Newcastle 1-2 Southampton - Eljero Elia

What an impact from Shane Long! His first touch is to play the ball for Eljero Elia to race on to and his shot takes a slight deflection of Daryl Janmaat, but enough to take the ball beyond Tim Krul and into the net.

SUBSTITUTION

Newcastle 1-1 Southampton

It is actually a double substitution for Southampton as Jack Cork and Shane Long, who scored at Ipswich in the FA Cup in midweek, come on with James Ward-Prowse and Dusan Tadic making way.

Newcastle 1-1 Southampton

Former Newcastle defender John Anderson

BBC Radio Newcastle at St James' Park

"Newcastle are trying to work the ball into dangerous areas but unfortunately for the home side their little one-twos are not coming off at the minute. It's good to see them trying to play that way though."
