Southampton vs Newcastle live stream and match preview
Looking for a Southampton vs Newcastle United live stream? We've got you covered with our handy guide.
Southampton are, quite simply, in desperate need of a win. The south coast side have won just once since beating Chelsea at the end of August, and are sitting just outside of the relegation zone in 17th.
Granted, they did manage to draw at home to league leaders Arsenal a couple of weeks ago, but Southampton reverted back to their poor form by losing to Crystal Palace with an inept performance last weekend. Ralph Hasenhüttl is inevitably under pressure, and their job doesn't get any easier as they welcome one of the most in-form sides in the league to the St Mary's Stadium on Sunday.
Indeed, Newcastle have seriously impressed this season, and it's clear to see why. Currently sat in fourth, Newcastle are a good bet to make the Champions League at the end of this season, let alone Europe, with Eddie Howe assembling a squad of real quality.
Miguel Almiron and Bruno Guimares have enjoyed stellar campaigns, while Kieran Tripper has proven why he is still one of the country's best full-backs. They have only lost one game this season, to a last-minute goal against Liverpool in August, and since then Newcastle have gone from strength to strength.
Winning 2-0 away from home against Tottenham a couple of weeks ago proved the team's ability, and they duly followed that result up with a comprehensive 4-0 victory against Aston Villa last weekend.
Alexander Isak, Matt Ritchie and Emil Krafth are all on the Newcastle treatment table, while Joelinton is suspended after picking up his fifth booking of the season against Aston Villa last weekend.
With Joelinton serving a one-match ban, Jacob Murphy replaces the Brazilian in the only change from Newcastle's 4-0 win against Villa.
Southampton, meanwhile, have Armell Bella-Kotchap and Valentino Livramento on the sidelines, with Kyle Walker-Peters likely to miss the rest of the season, too.
Theo Walcott makes his first start since Boxing Day and is one of four Saints changes. Armel Bella-Kotchap returns from injury to feature in defence, Juan Larios plays at right-back and Ainsley Maitland-Niles is recalled in midfield.
Duje Caleta-Car, Lyanco, Ibrahima Diallo and Joe Aribo drop to the bench.
Stuart Attwell will be the referee for Southampton vs Newcastle.
Southampton vs Newcastle will be played at St Mary's Stadium.
Southampton vs Newcastle is being played at the same time as West Ham vs Crystal Palace and Aston Villa against Manchester United, while Chelsea's game against Arsenal kicks off two hours earlier at 12pm.
Liverpool travel to Tottenham for the late kick-off on Sunday, with the game being played at 4:30pm.
Kick-off and channel
Kick-off is at 2pm BST on Sunday 6 November and the game is on Sky Sports Main Event and Sky Sports Premier League (opens in new tab) in the UK. See below for international broadcast options.
Use a VPN to watch Premier League football from outside your country
If you’re out of the country for a round of Premier League fixtures, then annoyingly your domestic on-demand services won’t work – the broadcaster knows where you are because of your IP address (boo!). You'll be blocked from watching it, which is not ideal if you’ve paid up for a subscription and still want to catch the action without resorting to illegal feeds you’ve found on Reddit.
But assistance is on hand. To get around that, all you have to do is get a Virtual Private Network (VPN), assuming it complies with your broadcaster’s T&Cs. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and t'internet, meaning the service can’t work out where you are and won't automatically block the service you've paid for. All the info going between is entirely encrypted – and that's a result.
There are plenty of good-value options out there, and FourFourTwo currently recommends:
