SOU vs NEW As It Happened
Key moments so far
- Newcastle hold a one goal advantage heading into the second leg
- Joelinton's 73rd minute goal the difference
- Joelinton and Adam Armstrong both denied a goal through handball
- HALF TIME: Saints 0-1 Newcastle
FULL TIME: Saints 0-1 Newcastle
Disappointment at St Mary's as Southampton fall to a 1-0 defeat in the first leg of their Carabao Cup semi-final clash with Newcastle. Joelinton's goal gave the visitor's the lead upon 73 minutes and while Adam Armstrong looked to find the equaliser shortly afterwards, it was then chalked off for an adjudged handball. Onto the second leg at St James' Park next week.22.00
Yellow Card for Mohammed Salisu (Southampton)
Another Saints player in the book.
Isak hits the netting
Another failed opportunity for the visitors to consolidate their lead. Alexander Isak works his way round Gavin Bazunu before setting his sights on goal from a tight angle, but it works its way into the side netting again.
Alcaraz providing a spark
Charly Alcaraz continues to show his potential despite a difficult night in SO14, he launches an attack before laying off Sam Edozie down the wing. The youngster looks to cut in Ché Adams inside the area but the Scot fails to get himself in position.
Murphy rattles the side netting
It appears it's damage limitation at St Mary's as Newcastle continue to search for a second goal. The ball falls for Jacob Murphy who releases a strike from a tight angle but it rattles the side netting. A sigh of relief from Saints, one minute into an allotted five additional minutes.
Trippier's strike goes over
Kieran Trippier lines up the free-kick for the visitors, he strikes it with some force but it edges just over Gavin Bazunu's crossbar.
Southampton substitution: Jan Bednarek replaces Kyle Walker-Peters
The Poland international marks his return in a Southampton shirt as Nathan Jones is forced to replace his centre back.
Red Card for Duje Ćaleta-Car (Southampton)
Duje Ćaleta-Car is shown a second yellow card for a challenge on Allan Saint-Maximin. Newcastle now with a free-kick in a very dangerous position central to goal.
Yellow Card for Allan Saint-Maximin (Newcastle United)
Allan Saint-Maximin also picks up a caution for the heated reaction that followed from Lyanco's challenge.
Yellow Card for Lyanco Vojnovic (Southampton)
Lyanco finds himself in the book a challenge on Sean Longstaff.

A late challenge on Sam Edozie sees the Newcastle captain in the book. Saints with another free-kick in a dangerous area.
Newcastle United substitution: Allan Saint-Maximin replaces Joe Willock
Newcastle United substitution: Alexander Isak replaces Callum Wilson
The first substitution from the visitors.
Adams denied by Pope
It's not exactly prime James Ward-Prowse territory, but Saints are awarded a dangerous free-kick. The captain's delivery is headed down by the Newcastle defence straight into the feet of Ché Adams, who manages to find the target despite a tight angle but Nick Pope is at the near post to clear. Lyanco attempts to strike from the rebound but his shot fires over.
Adams lacks the conviction to find the net
Perhaps the hosts best chance of the contest so far, Ché Adams finds himself in acres of space and one-on-one with Nick Pope approaching the goalline. The Scottish international takes a low shot but is denied by the Newcastle keeper.
Saints surging forward
Another impressive break from Saints, this time through Kyle Walker-Peters who breezes past three defenders before crossing into the area to an awaiting James Ward-Prowse. It's a tight angle for the captain though, whose somewhat acrobatic effort fails to find the target.
Saints looking to utilise Edozie down the left
Lovely play from Charly Alcaraz who feeds the perfect ball into Sam Edozie down the left flank, the youngster charges forward before slicing the ball across to intended target Adam Armstrong but the Newcastle defence is there to clear for the visitors. These substitutions have injected some pace into the contest.
Walker-Peters calls for a penalty
Nice play from Kyle Walker-Peters as he looks to work the ball into the area before being brought down just on the edge of the box. A defiant reaction from Stuart Attwell, who immediately dismisses the calls for a penalty.
Southampton substitution: Ché Adams replaces Mislav Oršić
Mislav Oršić's debut Saints start comes to an end.
Southampton substitution: Samuel Edozie replaces Sékou Mara
The boss looks for reinforcements.
Armstrong strikes it high
Lovely individual play from the former Newcastle youngster who dances through the Newcastle defence before firing an effort over.
Mara denied by Pope
Saints look to pounce on the counter-attack, earning themselves a corner in the process. James Ward-Prowse's corner falls to Sékou Mara who looks to slot the ball low but it's a comfortable save for Nick Pope.
Botman skims the netting
Newcastle take the free-kick short and quick as they look to catch Saints off guard early on in the second half, Miguel Almirón's initial effort is tipped across goal before Sven Botman hits the side netting.
Joelinton misses from close range
An absolute howler from the Newcastle man. Lovely build-up play from Newcastle who feed the ball into Joelinton at the back post but his effort from just a couple of yards out goes well over the bar. Huge miss.
Mara's acrobatic volley goes wide of the post
Saints have their first opportunity of the second-half as Sékou Mara looks to find the net through an acrobatic effort but it goes wide of the post.
Newcastle bringing the energy
The first chance of the second half falls the way of the visitors but Sean Longstaff launches the ball well over.
Back to it 👊
Can anyone find the breakthrough in the second-half at St Mary's?
HALF TIME: Saints 0-0 Newcastle
It remains goalless at half-time at St Mary's but not through lack of trying. The visitors did have the ball in the back of the net through Joelinton but a handball ruled it offside. Aggressive and energetic in equal measure so far, a huge second-half of cup football awaits in SO14. Come on you Saints!
Armstrong looks to make instant impact
A lovely spot from Adam Armstrong who catches Sékou Mara on the break down the right wing but the attack eventually fizzles out for the hosts.
Southampton substitution: Adam Armstrong replaces Moussa Djenepo
The Malian is forced off the pitch as he recovers from the late challenge from Nick Pope.
Djenepo wounded by Pope
As Moussa Djenepo breaks Nick Pope comes storming out of goal and straight into the path of the Malian, who hits the deck almost instantly. No penalty for Pope as Moussa Djenepo receives treatment.
Yellow Card for Kyle Walker-Peters (Southampton)
Another player in the book for Saints as Kyle Walker-Peters fails to get the ball clear from the throw-in in good time.
Alcaraz forces Pope to deflect behind
With cheers of 'shoot' echoing around the stadium, Charly Alcaraz fires a shot from range straight into the path of Nick Pope who does well to get down but fails to get the ball under control as Saints earn a corner.
VAR Decision: Goal not awarded for Newcastle United [Joelinton Cássio Apolinário de Lira] was confirmed
Joelinton's handball denies Newcastle the advantage.
Newcastle denied opening goal
Chaos inside the penalty area as Gavin Bazunu first denies Joe Willock. The rebound then falls to Joelinton but with a clear view of the ball, the referee deems it a handball from Joelinton and the goal is ruled out.
Yellow Card for Carlos Alcaraz (Southampton)
Charly Alcaraz picks up a warning for tugging back on Bruno Guimaráes.
Mara sets his sights on goal
A smart run from Sékou Mara who then releases a shot from the edge of the box, his strike takes a slight deflection off of Miguel Almirón as the ball heads behind for a corner as the Saints fans ramp up the noise inside St Mary's.
Willock skies it ☁️
Another opportunity missed for the visitors as Joe Willock sends another ball high of the crossbar.
Newcastle searching for an opener
Joelinton looks to cut the ball back to Miguel Almirón inside the area but Kyle Walker-Peters gets to the ball first to break down the attack.
Mara takes a hit
Sékou Mara takes a strike to the face from Bruno Guimarâes and Saints are awarded a free-kick in the defensive half.
Trippier delivers from the set-piece
Kieran Trippier lines up the free-kick for the visitors, he whips the ball into the area but it's captain James Ward-Prowse that gets a head ot it and clears.
Yellow Card for Duje Ćaleta-Car (Southampton)
The Croatian is penalised for a late challenge on Miguel Almirón.
Light calls for a penalty
Moussa Djenepo engages in a battle for the ball and is brought down just on the edge of the area, a slight glance to the referee who shakes his head and dismisses the appeal.
Bazunu receives treatment
A quick break in play as Gavin Bazunu receives treatment for a bloodied nose after a clash with Miguel Almirón. A few moments pass and the Irishman is good to continue.
Bazunu punches clear
Trippier plays a quick one-two short from the corner before launching the ball into the box but Gavin Bazunu clears his line by about five yards before making a strong punch to clear the threat.
Trippier sends in tantalising cross
Wonderful from the England international who whips in a cross to Joe Willock at the back post but it heads just behind Gavin Bazunu's goal.
Alcaraz denied by Schar
It seems like Charly Alcaraz is constantly in the right place at the right time tonight as he retreives the ball in the centre of the pitch again. The Argentinian lays the ball to James Ward-Prowse who cuts the ball into an on-running Charly Alcaraz but Fabian Schár does enough to make the block.
Salisu makes a vital interception
Newcastle are looking increasingly dangerous on the attack, Joe Willock makes a lovely run down the left flank before finding Callum Wilson inside the area. The ball soon falls to Sean Longstaff but Mohammed Salisu is there to make a vital interception for Nathan Jones's men.
Alcaraz hits the counter
High energy from the men in white who are looking to pounce on every ball at St Mary's, Salisu earns possession before setting Charly Alcaraz off down the centre of the pitch, he lays a ball into Mislav Oršić but there's a little too much on it for the Croatian.
Alcaraz shows his skill ⚡️
Promising signs from the Argentinian youngster who does well to recover the ball for Saints in the centre of the pitch before a lovely one-two with James Ward-Prowse who is deemed offside as he appraoches the edge of the box.
Newcastle applying pressure early on
Dangerous signs from the visitors in the early stages at St Mary's with pressure building inside the Saints area, a number of opportunities follow for Eddie Howe's men but it's Sean Longstaff's low drive across goal that relieves the pressure with Moussa Djenepo retrieving.
Willock fires over
An early break from Newcastle down the right causes problems for Saints with Joe Willock being allowed the space to fire a shot from the edge of the box but the 23-year-old misjudges his strike and launches the ball well over the crossbar.
