Wolves injury update: Podence and Boly among those out injured for Saints clash

Southampton injury update: Kyle Walker-Peters could return, Mohammed Salisu may make his Saints debut

Wolverhampton Wanderers vs Southampton team news

Wolves and Southampton square off in the FA Cup fifth round this evening and both teams have injuries to contend with.

Beleaguered Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has the bigger selection headaches of the two managers, but there is some good news.

Kyle Walker-Peters is set to return after recovering from his thigh problem. Meanwhile, summer signing Mohammed Salisu could be in line for his Saints debut following months on the sidelines with a string of fitness issues. Ibrahima Diallo could also return.

Stuart Armstrong, Theo Walcott, Will Smallbone and Michael Obafemi are among the players who are still injured.

On-loan Liverpool forward Takumi Minamino is unavailable to play as he is cup-tied with the Reds, while young midfielder Alexandre Jankewitz is suspended.

Wolves manager Nuno Espirito Santo has less injury worries, but they are still having an impact on his team selection.

Winger Daniel Podence and defender Willy Boly are out with short-term injuries.

Striker Raul Jimenez and wing-back Marcal are both out with a fractured skull and groin injury respectively. However, Rayan Ait-Nouri could be in line for a return after overcoming his fitness troubles.
