Southampton manager Mark Hughes confirmed Italian striker Manolo Gabbiadini is Saints’ only injury concern as Saints travel up to Liverpool for their Premier League clash Saturday.
Gabbiadini is set to undergo a fitness test this morning after suffering a hamstring injury in training.

This means Gabbiadini could be set to sit out Saturday’s Liverpool game alongside in-form striker Danny Ings, who is ineligible to play as he is on loan from the Reds.
”We’ve got a couple of issues,” he said per the OS. “Our main concern is Manolo, who unfortunately pulled up in training today.
“It looks like he has an issue with his lower hamstring behind the knee; we think it might be a neural thing but we’ll check in the morning to see if it’s settled down. Apart from Danny of course, he’s the only player in doubt at this stage.
”We’ve got lots of options in the forward positions. Obviously, you don’t want to lose anyone of them but if he does miss out, we’ll prepare without Gabbi and Danny and still be strong enough.”
