Claude Puel's Saints look to bounce back from a disappointing midweek defeat away at Swansea City as they welcome Slaven Bilic's West Ham side.

Southampton were rocked by the news talismanic defender Virgil van Dijk has been ruled out of action for up to three months due to an ankle injury picked up following a challenge from Leicester City's Jamie Vardy.

However, Puel may well welcome Jay Rodriguez and James Ward-Prowse back into the side after they recovered from injuries picked up in Saints' League Cup win away at Liverpool last week.

Southampton's £14m signing of Manolo Gabbiadini is also in contention to play.

West Ham are missing Ghanian international Andre Ayew as he flies home from Africa Cup of Nations duty, but Cheikhou Kouyate could feature as Senegal crashed out of the tournament early.

Sam Byram is also doubt after injuring his hamstring against Manchester City.
