    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    Well, that is that. No goals at St Mary's.

    And it's now no win for Newcastle 10 games into the Premier League season.

    It's also no win now in six for Southampton who missed so many glorious chances - especially in the closing stages - to take all three points.

    It's certainly looking like a tricky season for both these sides.

    You can catch all the reaction to this afternoon's Premier League games over here.

    Cheers for joining!

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    I have absolutely no idea how Southampton haven't managed to score in the closing stages.

  3. CLOSE!

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    Jack Stephens is inches away from meeting James Ward-Prowse's lofted free-kick, but he just can't quite meet it just metres out from goal.

    That was another excellent opportunity for Southampton to take all three points.

    Newcastle let off the hook for now.

  4. CLOSE!

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    That was THE chance.

    Cedric Soares crosses for Shane Long who collects the ball just inside the penalty area, but Long - in space - drags his shot narrowly wide of the goal.

    Head in hands for Mark hughes.

    Five minutes added on.

  5. Post update

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    A corner for Southampton, James Ward-Prowse whips it in but it's comfortable for Martin Dubravka once again.

  6. Post update

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    Nathan Redmond drives forward now for Southampton.

    He finds Danny Ings who tees up Mario Lemina for an effort from the edge of the area, but Lemina's effort is just too high.

    Southampton are showing more urgency going forward now, sensing they could edge a vital three points here.


    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    James Ward-Prowse is on for Southampton now, replacing Oriol Romeu.

    Kris: This game is so bad it shouldn't be last on Match of the day, it should be missed out entirely #SOUNEW

    Beansy: Got to agree with some of the other texters - I think Rafa has taken us as far as he can. His Tyne has passed. Needs to go before he sours the memories.

    SMS Message: Bad as things are and might still get, surely the last thing that will help Newcastle would be getting rid of Rafa. The one thing they have in their favour surely from Jim
    SMS Message: Not one Newcastle fan wants rid of Rafa. Who would we get instead? Pardew, Kinnear, Curbishley?...exactly. from Ken, Newcastle
    Ken, Newcastle
    SMS Message: Calling for Rafa to go is craziness from Newcastle fans, just desperate to blame someone for how bad we are. Guaranteed relegation if he went from Jake, Newcastle

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    Southampton are heading for five games without a goal in the league, while Newcastle are going to be without a win after 10 games as it stands.

    Surely both sides need to make a bit of a go of this in the closing stages - but there's not much urgency at present.

    Paul Dummett and Cedric Soares

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    Salomon Rondon is being summoned from the bench by Rafael Benitez.

    Ayoze Perez has received a knock and makes way for the returning Rondon.

    Can he have an impact in the final 20 minutes here?

  12. CLOSE!

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    Mohamed Elyounoussi's cross finds Nathan Redmond at the back post, who fires a shot goal-bound but Paul Dummett is there to get his body in the way.

    The net might have rippled had Dummett been a second too late to meet that one.


    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    Charlie Austin is coming off now - he hasn't been moving well since that clash with the Newcastle goalkeeper.

    Manolo Gabbiadini comes on in his place.

  14. Post update

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    Danny Ings weaves his way into the area but sees his effort blocked by Federico Fernandez before it can cause any damage.

    It heads out for a corner but Yoshinori Muto is back to win a free-kick for his side.

    Charlie Austin is down now though - it looks like he might be feeling the effects of that earlier clash with Martin Dubravka.

    Charlie Austin and Martin Dubravka
  15. Post update

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    Danger in the Southampton box quickly turns to drama in the Newcastle area, as Charlie Austin sticks the ball in the back of the net - but only after fouling Martin Dubravka who did have the ball safely in his hands before Austin's barge.

  16. More of the same

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    The second half has carried on pretty much exactly how the first half ended, with some half-chances broken up by scrappy periods of play.

    Newcastle's Jonjo Shelvey makes space for a shot from distance but that one is still travelling upwards.

    Jonjo Shelvey
  17. Post update

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    Danny Ings gets himself into a great position for a shot following a lovely pass from Ryan Bertrand but, unfortunately, he runs into team-mate Charlie Austin who does Newcastle's defending for them.

  18. Post update

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    A good break from Southampton.

    Charlie Austin tries to lay Nathan Redmond off for a shot but Jamaal Lascelles is there to get rid of the danger.

    Better from the home side.

  19. KICK-OFF

    Southampton 0-0 Newcastle

    We're off again. Action please.

    Matt: Soton v Newcastle is the typical relegation 6 pointer....except that it doesn't matter who wins as they are both going down

    Uday: Some analysis is easy and fundamental. Newcastle are bereft of confidence and scared to make a mistake hence won’t take a shot.
