  1. Post update

    Southampton 3-1 Newcastle

    Newcastle striker Aleksandar Mitrovic thunders the ball into the net, but he is flagged offside.

    The replays show he was off by a couple of yards.

  2. CLOSE!

    Southampton 3-1 Newcastle

    Close again for the Saints.

    Jay Rodriguez almost gets on the end of a Victor Wanyama cross, but Vurnon Anita is at the back post to head the ball away.


    Southampton 3-1 Newcastle

    Forward Jay Rodriguez comes on for his first Saints appearance since October. He has been recovering from a foot operation.

    The England striker replaces Dusan Tadic.

  4. Post update

    Southampton 3-1 Newcastle

    Saints bring on Oriol Romeu for the hard-working Jordy Clasie. There are 12 minutes remaining.

  5. CLOSE!

    Southampton 3-1 Newcastle

    That was close from Sadio Mane. The attacking midfielder runs into the area and bends his shot just past Karl Darlow's right-hand upright.

    There will probably be another goal in this - but who will score it?

  6. Post update

    Southampton 3-1 Newcastle

    This might... might... give Newcastle fans some hope. Norwich are losing 1-0 to Crystal Palace.

  7. Post update

    Southampton 3-1 Newcastle

    BBC Newcastle's summariser John Anderson: "It's some hit from Townsend. He likes to drift in off the right side. He's not going to hit too many better than that."


    Southampton 3-1 Newcastle

    Papiss Cisse comes on for Ayoze Perez, who has been ineffective.

  9. GOAL - Southampton 3-1 Newcastle

    Andros Townsend

    No need to rub your eyes, Newcastle have scored!!

    It's Andros Townsend with the stunning strike. You can probably second guess how he managed it.

    The former Tottenham man cut in from the right before unleashing a rocket of an effort past the stationary Fraser Forster.

    Not 'game on', but more 'there is a game on'.

    Andros Townsend

    Southampton 3-0 Newcastle

    Saints take off goalscorer Shane Long and bring on James Ward-Prowse.

    The Republic of Ireland striker gets a warm round of applause, and deserved too.

  11. Post update

    Southampton 3-0 Newcastle

    At the other end an 18-yard shot from Ayoze Perez forces a low save from Fraser Forster.

    The England keeper then pushes away a strong shot from Andros Townsend.

    Newcastle fans are cheering when their players have the ball - might be a wee bit tongue in cheek.

  12. GOAL - Southampton 3-0 Newcastle

    Victor Wanyama

    The Saints try a different approach for the corner and play it short.

    Sadio Mane eases to the byline and cuts it back for Graziano Pelle, whose low shot is blocked. However, Victor Wanyama follows up and lashes the rebound into Newcastle's bottom right corner.

    It's Wanyama's first goal in 17 months! He could probably get a hat-trick today...

  13. Post update

    Southampton 2-0 Newcastle

    The corner count is totting up. Saints have now had 10.

    Here's another...

  14. Post update

    Southampton 2-0 Newcastle

    Newcastle somehow win their first corner after a 'Police Academy' of an attack.

    Unsurprisingly, nothing comes from the set-piece. But the visitors are enjoying more of the possession.

  15. Post update

    Southampton 2-0 Newcastle

    Almost a gift from Fraser Forster. The former Newcastle keeper's clearance from a backpass falls to Magpies midfielder Moussa Sissoko who is 40 yards out on the left.

    But the France international - who has not scored for his club this season - fails to trouble the goal with his return shot.

  16. Post update

    Southampton 2-0 Newcastle

    Newcastle are 66-1 to win this.

    The race starts at 17:15 BST.

  19. Post update

    Southampton 2-0 Newcastle

    BBC Newcastle summariser John Anderson: "Newcastle have not worked the goalkeeper. Forster had nothing to do. Are we capable of pulling two goals back? On the evidence of the first 45 minutes and of the rest of this season, the answer is no."

    Daniel Woodley: Looks like the end for Newcastle in the Premier League. A big club in years gone by being made a laughing stock once again. Shame
