Southampton vs Watford team news

Saints’ promising form has come to a fairly abrupt halt with two disappointing defeats to Aston Villa and Newcastle United.

But Southampton’s problems pale into comparison to what Roy Hodgson’s Watford are currently enduring, having only won one of their last 17 games in all competitions as they try to escape the relegation zone.

In terms of team news, Ralph Hasenhuttl could reintroduce Nathan Tella back into the Southampton fold after he recovered from a groin injury that saw him miss the last nine games.

However, Alex McCarthy and Lyanco remain long-term injury absentees.

The Hornets may be ready to reintroduce William Troost-Ekong and Jeremy Ngakia after their respective injury issues.

Though, it’s expected that Joao Pedro and Ismaila Sarr will miss out with the former testing positive for Covid-19, which ruled him out of their defeat at Wolverhampton Wanderers.
