Saints frontman Shane Long to return

Southampton boss Mauricio Pellegrino will be able to call upon Shane Long for the FA Cup clash with Watford.

The frontman sat out last Sunday's draw with Spurs in the Premier League because he had come down with the flu but he has now recovered and is set to feature against the Hornets.

Maya Yoshida has recovered from a hamstring injury and he too could feature but Ryan Bertrand is among those now suffering with flu-like symptoms and he could miss out.

Despite facing relegation rivals Brighton on Wednesday night, and then second bottom West Brom three days later in the Premier League, Pellegrino has vowed to field his best XI against Watford.
