Team news

Moussa Djenepo is on an international mission. Tino Livramento, Kyle Walker-Peters and Yan Valery are absent but Che Adams is in good shape.

Josh Dasilva, Tariqe Fosu, Charlie Goode, Rico Henry, Mathias Jorgensen and David Raya remain absent, while Frank Onyeka is in Cameroon.

Match preview

The Saints and Brentford find themselves in the bottom six of the over / under goals table, but there is still a feeling these two middle division teams can fill their boots at St Mary’s.

In the lower half of the actual board – but looking safe given the chronic condition of the last four – it’s a free kick for them. Southampton will overtake Brentford in 11th place with a win, while the Bees can come back in the first half.

It’s hard to trust either team, which certainly makes a bet on the low odds Saints not easy to advise.

Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men are on a decent one-in-seven loss streak and will be delighted to have outlived Swansea in the FA Cup with ten men.

Brentford left late to defeat Port Vale and lost just three of 11 on the road in all competitions.

Only Leicester conceded more first-half goals than the Bees, while the quick-start Saints have scored in the first 45 of each of the last nine games in which they have found the net. Support the hosts to score more goals in the first half than in the second.

Key statistic

Twelve of Southampton’s last 22 games have ended in 90-minute draws.
