- Newcastle are winless in their last seven Premier League meetings with Southampton (D3 L4), since a 4-2 win in February 2013.

- Saints have only failed to score in one of their last 19 Premier League games against Newcastle, netting in each of the last 12.

- At St James’ Park, Newcastle have lost only one of their last 12 Premier League games against Saints (W8 D3 L1), but are winless in three at home against them (D2 L1).

- After a run of eight home Premier League games without a win (D3 L5), Newcastle won their last game at St James’ Park – they’ve not won back-to-back Premier League games at home since September.

- Only Tottenham (5) are on a longer current unbeaten away run in the Premier League than Southampton (4 – W1 D3).

- Meanwhile, Saints have also shipped a league-high 11 goals from outside the area in the Premier League this season.

- Rafael Benitez hasn’t beaten Southampton in a Premier League match since his first ever meeting with them (1-0 in December 2004), drawing two and losing three since.
