Mark Hughes expects to have trio of Saints strikers available

Southampton manager Mark Hughes expects to have striking trio Charlie Austin, Shane Long and Danny Ings available for Monday’s game with Brighton.

Austin (hamstring) and Long (toe) have been absent from training this week, while Ings has been suffering with a blister.

Saints have no other selection concerns and could stick with the team which won at Crystal Palace before the international break.

Florin Andone and Jose Izquierdo could make their first appearances of the season.

Romania forward Andone, a summer signing from Deportivo La Coruna, has been sidelined with a groin problem, while Colombia winger Izquierdo has been building his fitness following his involvement in the World Cup.

Albion boss Chris Hughton has no selection concerns ahead of the trip to St Mary’s, with defenders Bruno and Lewis Dunk available following their recent injury problems.
