Southampton will be preparing for their match against Liverpool at Anfield on Saturday, however, they will be without one man for the trip.
According to Ben Dinnery, Manolo Gabbiadini will be absent for the Saints as he continues to recover from a hamstring injury.

The Italian striker has made just three substitute appearances for Mark Hughes’ side so far this season.
However, in some more positive news for the south coast outfit, the freelance injury data analyst has revealed he is the only concern that they have as they look ahead to their encounter with one of the Premier League’s in-form sides.
Liverpool will be coming off the back of a tough Champions League match against Paris Saint-Germain earlier in the week and Hughes will be expecting Jurgen Klopp to make changes, although he will know a strong side will be fielded regardless.
At the current moment, there is not really a great time to play against Liverpool, however, this could be a great opportunity for Southampton to get something from the game.
The Saints are currently on their own good run of form, having been unbeaten in their last three matches, although they didn’t enjoy the best of times last time out against Brighton and Hove Albion.
Gabbiadini could be a miss for Hughes’ side on Saturday, especially considering Danny Ings will not be allowed to feature against his parent side at the weekend.
