Pellegrino accuses Southampton players of giving up against Newcastle United

Grant SmithMar 12, 2018

By contrast Southampton remain firmly in the mire and their display will raise further concerns as to whether Pellegrino is the right man to keep them up.

According to The Chronicle, there is a chance that Kenedy could extend his loan spell until the end of next season so long as Newcastle survive and Rafa Benitez remains on Tyneside.

Shelvey lofted a delightful ball to the Brazilian, who controlled excellently with his chest on the turn and scuffed an effort into the bottom-right corner.

Benitez is mindful of the effect such adversity can have on a club and is confident that Newcastle's four-day break in Alicante will be a sober affair.

Five minutes into the second half Newcastle could have had a third. In what was a well-worked goal, Gayle squared the ball to Kenedy, who tapped home from close range.

Rafa Benitez might have been frustrated by the lack of permanent additions at Newcastle United during the January transfer window, but two of the players he did bring to the club have made a remarkable impact. A Ritchie corner from the left was turned towards goal by a Perez header that flew just over the bar.

Yet it was Ritchie who put the game beyond doubt with a fine finish.

Southampton rallied to get back into the game but with the wind in their sails, Newcastle controlled possession to see out the game with their clean sheet intact.

Newcastle United are said to be fighting Premier League rivals Swansea City - as well as Derby County - to sign the Manchester City winger Javairo Dilrosun. - Matt Ritchie's strike was the 12th goal Southampton have conceded from outside the box in the Premier League this season, more than any other side.

Mauricio Pellegrino's side's first attempt on goal came on the hour mark.

"But still we have to win two or three games if we want to be sure that we are in the Premier League next year".
