Defender Jan Bednarek is a doubt for Southampton's Premier League trip to Crystal Palace on Tuesday night with an Achilles injury.

Starting all 23 of Saints’ Premier League matches to date, Bednarek completed the full 90 minutes against Wolves on Saturday but is a concern for the midweek clash at Selhurt Park.

Issuing an update on his side’s fitness, manager Ralph Hasenhüttl revealed Saints are otherwise at full fitness following the weekend.

“We have Jan Bednarek who has a little bit of a problem with his Achilles,” he said. “So far, the rest were a little bit tired I think yesterday, but today let’s have a look.

“We have training in the afternoon so can have a look.”

Defender Yan Valery – absent since the end of November – continues to edge closer to a return from a viral infection, and is the only other likely absentee.
