Ex-Scotland international on BBC Radio 5 live

"Steve McClaren will have learned a lot about his team today. For 75 minutes they were the better side but he made a few changes and he needs to work out why they did not work. But those 75 minutes were better than anything else I saw from Newcastle last season. He has something to build on here."

FULL-TIME

"Daryl Janmaat does not make any contact towards defending the cross, and Shane Long stole in with a brilliant header.  

"Ten minutes ago we talked about whether Newcastle would be getting nervous, having failed to put the match to bed. I wonder what Steve McClaren is thinking now about taking Papiss Cisse off. Aleksandar Mitrovic came on and has only done one thing so far - kicking an opponent."

Newcastle break through Gabriel Obertan, it's three on two but they fail to make their advantage pay.

 Gabriel Obertan is really growing into this game and the former Manchester United winger has a shot from outside the box but it just goes wide.

And here is exactly how that goal looked.

GOAL Newcastle 2-1 Wijnaldum (48 mins)

Just after Mayo Yoshida sees his header put over the bar by Tim Krul's leg, Newcastle break.

Papiss Cisse chips the ball into the path of Gabriel Obertan who sprints down the right wing and puts in a perfectly weighted cross for new boy Georginio Wijnaldum.

The £14.5m signing rises to meet the cross and places a header into the top left corner.

What a start to the second-half for Newcastle.

"A really enjoyable half of football. It's 1-1 just now but Newcastle shaded it for me. Now Steve McClaren has got something to get his teeth into with the goal, will he be going for it in the second half? I suspect he will be."

Soares' debut

Newcastle 1-1 Southampton

I just mentioned he was industrious and just look at Cedric Soares'  first-half heat map.

The Portugal full-back is having an impressive debut so far and is enjoying getting forward.

Looks like Southampton found a good replacement for Nathaniel Clyne.

HALF-TIME

Newcastle 1-1 Southampton

Honours even at St James' Park.

Papiss Cisse cancels out Graziano Pelle's opener.

Newcastle 1-1 Southampton

Almost a lovely goal, the industrious Cedric Soares gets into the box and hooks the ball to Dusan Tadic who shoots over the bar.

"Maarten Stekelenburg misjudged the cross so badly that there must have been a deflection on it. It went right over him and Papiss Cisse could not miss from there. Steve McClaren probably had a half-time team talk all planned out, but it's suddenly become a lot easier. Newcastle have deserved that." 

GOAL Newcastle 1-1 Cisse (43 mins)

Massadio Haidara's cross takes an unfortunate deflection off Sadio Mane and past Maarten Stekelenburg, leaving Papiss Cisse to chest the ball into an open net.

"Chancel Mbemba, the players he's up against in the air are starting to bully him. He looks a good player, strong, but in the air he's giving away three inches. He's not able to cope with Southampton's aerial threat - especially not against Graziano Pelle."

Newcastle 0-1 Southampton

 Sadio Mane has a wild shot from outside the box but it is high and wide.

Newcastle 0-1 Southampton

Fabricio Coloccini almost puts Papiss Cisse through before the Senegal striker then falls over in the box, he appeals for a penalty, but the more likely scenario is he fell over his own feet.

A great start to the season for Graziano Pelle. Have a look at how his goal was scored below...

The striker, number 18, gets on the end of Cedric Soares' cross.

Newcastle 0-1 Southampton

Huge appeal for handball and Newcastle fans aren't happy.

Papiss Cisse tries to guide a corner into the box with his head, the ball hits Jay Rodriguez, but has it hit his arm, difficult to say.

Steve McClaren has now made his way down from the director's box to the dugout.

"That was just about Graziano Pelle's first touch of the game.There wasn't an awful lot of power on the header but the technique was perfect - it was so low down Tim Krul couldn't get down to it."

Newcastle 0-1 Southampton

Six touches, one goal, for Southampton striker Graziano Pelle.

GOAL Newcastle 0-1 Southampton - Pelle (24mins)

Graziano Pele connects with a powerful header from a Cedric Soares cross in the centre of the box to give Southampton the lead, slightly against the run of play.
