Southampton vs. Brighton Team and Injury News:

Southampton are on the hunt to continue their good run of form since the restart and take on a Brighton side who look well clear of any relegation battles from the Premier League.

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is unable to call upon Sofiane Boufal, Moussa Djenepo and Yan Valery due to their injuries, but is expected to rotate some players in his squad due to the tight turnaround of games following Southampton’s dramatic 2-2 draw at Manchester United on Monday night.

Brighton manager Graham Potter has two notable players unavailable. Midfielder Steven Alzate and pacy winger Jose Izquierdo are both out injured.
