It's a big week ahead! Catch up on the latest at Southampton Football Club with our Monday Briefing.

Saints return to action against Fulham

After the international break comes to an end on Tuesday, it’s a hugely significant trip to Fulham for Mark Hughes’s men on Saturday (3pm GMT).

The two sides met last season in the Emirates FA Cup at Craven Cottage, when James Ward-Prowse’s solitary strike was enough to earn progression into the next round.

Fulham will be looking to kick-start their season with the arrival of new manager Claudio Ranieri, who recently replaced Slaviša Jokanović. They currently sit bottom of the table with five points.

Under-23s face Norwich in Premier League 2

Follow their Checkatrade Trophy exploits, Radhi Jaidi’s side travel to Norwich City on Friday in Premier League 2 in search of a fourth successive league victory.

They fell to a 3-0 defeat at Southend United last time out, but their scintillating league form has seen them climb into third in the table behind Reading and Wolves.

Watch the highlights from their last PL2 outing…

Saints Women cruise to victory

Southampton FC Women secured an 11-1 victory over Basingstoke Town in the Hampshire FA Women’s Challenge Cup second round on Sunday.

Sam Burt opened the scoring after just three minutes, with a brace from Chloe Newton and a further strike from Aliss Wheler seeing them head into the break with a five-goal lead.

Newton took her personal tally to four in the second-half, with Georgie Lowe also scoring a brace. Shelly Provan, who had already provided two assists, got her goal
and Ellie Chaffe rounded things off in the 75th minute.
