Long set for Saints start

Forward Shane Long will be available for Southampton's Premier League clash against Newcastle at St Mary's on Sunday.

Long was absent from the Republic of Ireland's 2018 World Cup qualifier against Wales with a hip injury, but is available for Mauricio Pellegrino when his side entertain the Magpies.

Pellegrino also revealed there were no fresh injury concerns following the international break for the visit of Rafael Benitez's side.

It means Matt Targett remains the Argentine's only long-term absentee, but the boss may still look to shuffle his back, with his side yet to win at home this season.

Provisional squad: Forster, McCarthy, Stephens, Bertrand, McQueen, Soares, Pied, Yoshida, Hoedt, Van Dijk, Bednarek, Davis, Hojbjerg, Tadic, Romeu, Redmond, Ward-Prowse, Lemina, Long, Boufal, Austin, Gabbiadini.
