Bournemouth vs. Southampton Team and Injury News:

The fortunes of Southampton and Bournemouth have changed significantly since their first meeting last September.

The Cherries ran out 3-1 winners at St Mary’s last time out, but Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth now find themselves firmly embroiled in a relegation battle.

A Saints victory would hand Bournemouth a big blow in their bid for Premier League survival.

Ralph Hasenhuttl says he has no new injury concerns of his Saints squad. Moussa Djenepo and Sofiane Boufal remain out with injury, but the Austrian manager says he could rotate the squad due to a quick turnaround in games.

Bournemouth, however, are enduring a defensive injury crisis.

Nathan Ake, Chris Mepham, Charlie Daniels and Simon Francis are all out according to Howe.
