Southampton may have suffered two losses in a row to Premier League giants Manchester City and Chelsea, but Saints remain determined to earn a top-eight finish to round off their 2016/17 campaign.

Hull City are Saints' opponents for Saturday afternoon. The relegation battlers may have terrible away form, having not won away from home since August, but they are formidable at home—earning 19 of 21 points from their last seven league matches. For the sake of their Premier League status, Hull boss Marco Silva will hope his side can translate their home form on the road.

Saints boss Claude Puel could welcome Sam McQueen back to the first team after the winger-turned-left-back recovered from a groin injury. Charlie Austin and Matt Targett are both back in training, but aren't expected to feature.

Hull will be missing defender Omar Elabdellaoui. However, they received some good news this week as striker Oumar Niasse had his ludicrous red card, picked up against Watford last week, rescinded so he will be available.
