Southampton the latest gossip

Up The Saints


Hull v Southampton preview

Team news ahead of Saturday afternoon's Premier League clash between Hull and Southampton at the KC Stadium.

Hull could face Southampton with the same XI that started last week's draw with Liverpool.

Goalkeepers Allan McGregor (shoulder) and Steve Harper (bicep) are still out, meaning third-choice Eldin Jakupovic continues in goal.

Gaston Ramirez is ineligible to face his parent club, Tom Ince has joined Nottingham Forest on loan and Michael Dawson (ankle), Nikica Jelavic and Robert Snodgrass (both knee) are all out.

Sadio Mane could return to the Southampton squad as Saints look to maintain their impressive run of form.

Mane was rested as a precaution against Stoke in the Capital One Cup on Wednesday night. The midfielder was expected to train on Friday in the hope that he will be included in the squad that travels to East Yorkshire.

Saints manager Ronald Koeman, whose team have won six of their last seven Premier League matches, otherwise has a full squad to select from.
