Newcastle United v Southampton early team news: Fresh major doubt as six players ruled out

Early team news as Newcastle United entertain Southampton at St James’ Park.

Newcastle United could be without one of their star performers for this afternoon’s Premier League clash against Aston Villa (kick-off 2pm).

As reported by NewcastleWorld, Sean Longstaff is a doubt after picking up an injury during Thursday night’s 4-1 win at Everton.

The Geordie midfielder was sent for a scan on Friday amid fears he may have broken a bone in his ankle or foot. It’s hoped Longstaff will avoid such damage but if that is to be the case then it’s likely he’ll miss the remaining six games.

Indeed, Longstaff isn’t the only Newcastle likely to miss today’s clash against Southampton. Here’s a look at the latest injury news from both camps.
