Southampton defender Jan Bednarek ruled out of Brighton visit with calf injury

Jan Bednarek will miss Southampton’s Premier League clash with Brighton on Saturday due to a calf injury.

The Poland defender trudged out of Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Leicester in the closing stages and will now miss out this weekend.

Stuart Armstrong will sit the game out with a heel complaint, while goalkeeper Fraser Forster picked up a knock in training and will also be out of action.

Defender Jack Stephens is building fitness after a long-term knee injury.

Brighton will be without Jeremy Sarmiento, Adam Webster and Adam Lallana after all three were injured against West Ham in midweek.

Teenage winger Sarmiento was handed a full Premier League debut but it lasted just 13 minutes before he hobbled off with a hamstring issue.

Defender Webster was another first-half casualty after suffering a calf problem, and Lallana limped off late on with a leg injury which means he will miss out against his old club.

Southampton provisional squad: McCarthy, Livramento, Lyanco, Salisu, Walker-Peters, Redmond, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Tella, Adams, Armstrong, Lewis, Long, Perraud, Broja, Djenepo, Smallbone, Elyounoussi, Valery, Walcott.

Brighton provisional squad: Sanchez, Steele, Lamptey, Cucurella, Dunk, Duffy, Burn, Veltman, Bissouma, Mac Allister, Mwepu, Gross, Moder, March, Richards, Connolly, Maupay, Trossard, Locadia.
