Southampton waiting on key fitness updates

Southampton will give defender Jos Hooiveld and midfielder Victor Wanyama as long as possible to prove their fitness for the home BPL clash with Liverpool.

Hooiveld missed the league encounter at West Ham last weekend with an eye injury while Kenyan midfielder Wanyama is set to remain sidelined by the unspecified knock which kept him out of the squad to face the Hammers.

Manager Mauricio Pochettino is ready to give the majority of the squad that slipped up 3-1 at West Ham the opportunity to atone for that defeat.

Provisional squad: Boruc, Chambers, Shaw, Schneiderlin, Fonte, Yoshida, Rodriguez, Cork, Lambert, S Davis, Lallana, K Davis, Clyne, Lovren, Ramirez, Ward-Prowse, Do Prado, Gallagher, Hooiveld, Wanyama.
