Alex McCarthy and Lyanco remain the only absentees ahead of Southampton's Emirates FA Cup quarter-final clash with Manchester City at St Mary's on Sunday.

Ralph Hasenhüttl confirmed that the likes of Tino Livramento and Nathan Tella have returned to training and are now available for selection.

The update provides a positive boost for the Southampton manager and his side, who are looking to make the FA Cup semi-finals for a second successive season.

"The rest of the team is fit," confirmed a happy Hasenhüttl, "we only have two injuries with Alex McCarthy and Lyanco.

"Everybody else is back in training so I have a lot of opportunities and must find the right fit."

Nathan Tella is an option for Sunday.

"If we play at home you always have pressure," said Hasenhüttl, "because you want to show your fans that you can compete.

"It's a tough draw for us, but hopefully it is also tough for them. We have shown previously we can draw against them but now we need to win.

"We have five subs on Sunday which will be different to the Premier League and both had a week to prepare. Hopefully we will find some good solutions because we know you have to do a very good job."
