INJURY NEWS: Southampton could miss up to four players through injury and suspension

INJURY UPDATE: Scott Parker self-isolating and Fulham’s selection issues


Fulham vs Southampton team news

Southampton make the trip to southwest London this afternoon for a Boxing Day clash with Fulham.

Fulham have been resurgent and have started to look a lot less like the relegation fodder they were branded early on in the 2020/21 Premier League season.

The Cottagers do have some issues ahead of Saints’ visit, though.

Manager Scott Parker will not be present on the touchline this afternoon as he is self-isolating after a member of his household tested positive for COVID-19.

Mario Lemina, who is on loan from Southampton, is ineligible to play against his parent club today. Meanwhile, Terence Kongolo and Ivan Cavaleiro are sidelined with injury.

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl also has some selection headaches for today with three key players injured.

Danny Ings is yet to have recovered from his hamstring issue picked up against Manchester City last week. Nathan Redmond has similar muscle problems. Saints’ towering defender Jannik Vestergaard is also expected to miss out after injuring his knee.

All three players have not been able to train according to Hasenhuttl.

Oriol Romeu will also miss out Saints’ trip as he is suspended.
