Team News:

Southampton will be looking to extend their rich vein of form to Brighton & Hove Albion in the league on Monday night, following their cup win over the Seagulls and victory over their rivals Crystal Palace the weekend after, prior to the international break.

Saints strike duo Shane Long and Charlie Austin are reportedly doubts through injury, but fellow forward Danny Ings is expected to feature upon recovering from the blister issues which saw him require painkilling injections.

Brighton assist machine Pascal Gross faces a late fitness test after picking up an ankle injury. Meanwhile, Jose Izquierdo and Florin Andone could play after returning to training following bouts of injury.
