Southampton manager Mark Hughes has this afternoon confirmed that his only injury concern is over striker Danny Ings, who missed the midweek trip to Brighton with a foot problem.

The forward, whose already off the mark having struck against Everton a fortnight ago, has the potential to be ready for this weekend's journey to the capital, but will continue to be monitored in the run up to Saturday's Premier League action. 

"We're in a good place in terms of our fitness," the boss revealed. "For the most part, we're all available.

"We've got a slight concern with Danny [Ings], he's got a sore foot. We're going to have to settle that down, he hasn't been on his feet too much this week.

"We felt that was the best thing, to take the pressure off the area. Hopefully that'll allow him to be in a better place in terms of the injury."
