Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl will not be on the touchline at St Mary’s in this evening’s game against West Ham United.

The Austrian is self-isolating after a member of his household tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus yesterday.

The news was released by the club just three hours before kick-off.

According to a club statement, Hasenhuttl is “currently self-isolating while we [the club] assess the situation further.”

That same statement says Hasenhuttl will be managing the game from home, keeping in touch with the team and coaching staff via a video link.
