Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhüttl is confident of finding the right solutions to overcome the injuries he is dealing with in his squad ahead of today's game against Aston Villa.

Saints are set be without Nathan Redmond, Sofiane Boufal and new arrival Kyle Walker-Peters for the match, as they look to complete a Premier League double over their opponents this season.

"We know that Reddy is out, Sofiane is out and Kyle Walker-Peters is out, so we need to change the team a little bit," said Hasenhüttl.

"But in every position we have two players and there are also a few young guys in behind who are pushing to get a chance, so the atmosphere is good.

"We know about the importance of this game, and we want to go there and show that we know it."

The Saints boss added: "We know that we have a few injuries now, and a few new players are coming in to get a chance to play.

"Kyle Walker-Peters is also injured, so we need to change a few things again and find the automatism back as quick as possible, especially in the home games – you need to be immediately there and try to find a way in the game and this is what we are looking for."
