Southampton worth backing on their travels
Newcastle under a lot of pressure
Six of the Saints' last nine games are away from home but that might not be a bad thing because they often play with more freedom on their travels.
Newcastle performed a damage-limitation exercise at Liverpool last Saturday in their 2-0 defeat but they are putting themselves under a lot of pressure to win their home games and may not respond in the right way.

Jonjo Shelvey (knee) is back in full training but Islam Slimani (thigh) and Jesus Gamez (ankle) are out.
Steven Davis, Charlie Austin (both hamstring) and Maya Yoshida (knee) are sidelined.
Southampton are unbeaten in their last five away games.
