Saints out of bottom three

SOUTHAMPTON climbed out of the Premier League relegation zone with a comfortable 2-0 win over freefalling Newcastle yesterday at St Mary’s.

Record £12m signing Gaston Ramirez set up Adam Lallana for the first and added the second himself to condemn the Magpies to a third successive defeat.

Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers saw his team held to a 0-0 draw as he returned to former club Swansea for the first time.

Defender Jose Enrique had a goal ruled out for the visitors, while teenage England winger Raheem Sterling also hit the Swansea crossbar.
