Comments:

League position: 10th Newcastle United were now unbeaten in their last seven home games in the Premier League (won three). Jonjo Shelvey had now scored in three consecutive league games for the first time in his career. The attendance of 42,303 was the lowest for a Premier League game at St James' Park since 10 November 2010 for the visit of Blackburn Rovers (41,053).

Comments:

League position: 18th On the first anniversary of manager Ralph Hasenhüttl's first game in charge, Southampton had now since lost five games in the Premier League after they had scored the opening goal; more than any other team in the same period. Danny Ings became the third Saints player to score in five consecutive games in the Premier League; also James Beattie (2002 and 2003) and Matt Le Tissier (1994 and 1996). They failed in their attempt to win three consecutive games in the Premier League for the first time since May 2016.
