Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl labelled James Ward-Prowse "a machine", following another 90 minutes for the midfielder in Saturday's FA Cup win.
Ward-Prowse played the duration during the win over Huddersfield on Saturday, meaning he has played the most minutes of any Saints player this season.
The midfielder captained the side as goals from Tom Smallbone and Jake Vokins secured a place in the fourth round of the competition.
"Ward-Prowse played once again but he's a machine," said Hasenhüttl. "He can play all the time he's unbelievable."

Ward-Prowse was the only starter against Huddersfield that kept their place from the starting eleven against Tottenham in the Premier League last time out.
"He in the last week is always the guy who runs the most, fighting for everything and a real captain today on the pitch.
"I'm happy that when I asked him if he can play, he said yes. But we still must pay attention, we have two days off after this bus period.
"The players deserve to have it off and then we can look forward to the next game."
