Three facts about Southampton

The Saints’ manager, Mauricio Pellegrino, is a former Liverpool player and featured under the current Newcastle manager Rafa Benitez during his time in Merseyside.

Southampton broke their transfer opening record this summer when they splashed £18.1m on Mario Lemina.

The record for their youngest player is still held by Theo Walcott, who made his debut for the club when he was just 16 years and 143 days old.

Key man: Charlie Austin

Although he has struggled with injury issues in recent seasons, Austin has proved to be a clinical striker in front of goal in the Premier League.

He comes into this weekend’s game in a rich vein of form, having struck three times in his last three games.
