Winger Moussa Djenepo is the only notable absentee for Southampton, as Ralph Hasenhüttl prepares his side for their first competitive fixture in 103 days on Friday evening.

Djenepo is serving the first of a three game suspension after he received a straight red card (which was awarded via VAR review) when Saints last met Newcastle back in March.

The manager also suggested that this Friday's Norwich City clash may yet come too soon for striker Shane Long, who has been nursing a minor muscle strain, but is hopeful that he'll return ahead of next week's Arsenal game.

"With Moussa's [Djenepo] suspension, he's the only player I'm missing at the moment. Everyone is else is training," Hasenhüttl confirmed.

"With Longy [Shane Long], who has had a muscle problem, he's back training with the group but maybe this week is too early. We'll see.

"Next week might be better for him."
