Southampton will host Everton in the Premier League on Saturday afternoon at the St. Mary’s Stadium.
Ralph Hasenhuttl will want to see a reaction from his side following their penalty shoot-out defeat to Derby County in the FA Cup on Wednesday night.
With The Saints in a rather precarious position, the Austrian boss will be able to focus solely on the top-flight competition and it appears he has been handed a significant boost ahead of the match with The Toffees.
According to a match preview on the club’s official website, Southampton will be able to call upon Danny Ings, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg, Charlie Austin and Yan Valery for the game.
Ings has recovered from his hamstring injury and has been involved with first-team training, whilst the trio are all available after serving their respective suspensions.
Southampton will have been delighted to have the quartet mentioned available for their game against Everton.
Ings and Austin have been the Saints main threat going forward this season in a campaign that has been difficult to find goals.
Valery has been given a chance in defence – in which he has been making an impression – whilst Hojbjerg has played a key role in the midfield for Hasenhuttl’s side.
Southampton fans – thoughts?
