Southampton: Romeo Lavia ruled out for six weeks

Southampton: Romeo Lavia ruled out for six weeks -Premier League News

Southampton have been dealt a huge injury blow as Ralph Hasenhuttl confirmed that Romeo Lavia will miss Saturday’s Premier League game vs Wolves after being ruled out for six weeks.

The Lowdown: Lavia’s hamstring

The Saints earned a magnificent 2-1 victory over Chelsea at St. Mary’s in midweek, but the mood was dampened when the 18-year-old goalscorer was forced off the pitch with a hamstring injury.

The red and white stripes will now travel to the Midlands to take on Bruno Lage’s side at Molineux, but will have to do it without their summer recruit, who hasn’t received good news on his situation.

The Latest: Hasenhuttl’s injury update

Speaking during his pre-match press conference, Hasenhuttl revealed that Lavia is facing at least six weeks on the sidelines and will therefore be absent for the upcoming fixture with Wolves.

As quoted by Southampton’s official website, he said:

“Romeo is injured now but has shown he can be a massive part of our game.

“He will be out for longer – how long we will see, but I expect minimum six weeks.”

Saints fans! Do you remember who scored your first goal of the 2021/22 season?

The Verdict: Big blow for Ralph

Lavia being out of action will come as a massive blow for the Saints, especially after the impressive start he’s made to life on the south coast.

The midfielder, dubbed ‘aggressive’ by Vincent Kompany, has averaged two interceptions and 1.4 tackles per 90 minutes, via WhoScored, as well as the drive he offers going forward from midfield.

Do you think Southampton will beat Wolves?

Yes

Yes

No

Lavia has walked into Hasenhuttl’s starting XI and made an instant impact, so the boss will be hoping that his new starlet is back fighting fit and available for selection again as soon as possible.
