Southampton will look to continue their winning ways on Thursday when they host West Ham United at the St. Mary’s Stadium.
Ralph Hasenhuttl has managed to guide his new side to back-to-back wins in the Premier League since taking over last month and will want to see it continue.
The Saints have eased their relegation concerns with those victories, although a tough test against the Hammers awaits them.
Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg is unavailable for selection as he is required to serve a one-match ban after he picked up his fifth yellow card of the season.
The 23-year-old has played a vital role for the Saints this season, having netted twice in his 15 Premier League matches so far.
Hojbjerg could potentially be a huge blow for Southampton and Hasenhuttl as they look to continue their fine form.
The midfielder has played a key role for the Saints in recent months and with a difficult test against West Ham coming up, they would have hoped to have had the Denmark international available.
Despite the potential blow, Hasenhuttl will be pleased to have almost the same squad available to him as he did in their win against Huddersfield Town in their previous fixture.
