Newcastle United host Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday aiming to ease further away from the relegation places.

Ayoze Perez’s eighth goal of the season earned Newcastle a 1-0 win at the King Power Stadium and gave them a healthy cushion over the bottom three.

Saints will travel to the North East in a buoyant mood having deservedly beaten Wolverhampton Wanderers 3-1 at St Mary’s last weekend.

Newcastle have lost just one of their last five league meetings with Southampton, a run that includes a comfortable 3-0 victory in last season’s corresponding fixture.

The two sides fought out a goalless draw at St Mary’s back in October, with Newcastle picking up a point courtesy of an outstanding performance by goalkeeper Martin Dubravka.

The teams directly below Newcastle in the standings all have games in hand, but another win should be enough to guarantee Premier League football at St James’ Park next season.

The uncertainty over Benitez’s future is a major worry for Newcastle fans, with the Spaniard still stalling over signing a new deal as he waits for answers regarding the club’s transfer policy.
