Southampton vs Leicester City - Southampton still without Cedric Soares and Moussa Djenepo

Southampton remain without injured duo Cedric Soares and Moussa Djenepo for Friday’s Premier League clash with high-flying Leicester.

Full-back Soares is yet to recover from a calf problem sustained before the international break, while winger Djenepo – who has not featured since mid-September – is sidelined with a hip issue.

Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl has no fresh selection concerns following last weekend’s 1-1 draw at Wolves, while striker Danny Ings will be keen to continue the form which has brought five goals in four games in all competitions.

James Maddison will be fit to play at St Mary’s, giving Leicester boss Brendan Rodgers a full squad to choose from.

After suffering an ankle injury prior to the international break and then pulling out of the England squad due to illness, Maddison had missed a couple of weeks of training before starting against Burnley at the weekend.

The 22-year-old midfielder was substituted midway through the second half of the 2-1 home win but he has experienced no ill-effects and will be fit and ready to go again on Friday night.

Southampton provisional squad: Gunn, Valery, Bednarek, Yoshida, Vestergaard, Bertrand, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Redmond, Ings, McCarthy, Danso, Stephens, Armstrong, Boufal, Long, Obafemi, Adams.

Leicester provisional squad: Schmeichel, Ward, Jakupovic, Chilwell, Justin, Pereira, Morgan, Evans, Fuchs, Soyuncu, Amartey, Gray, Praet, Tielemans, Maddison, Albrighton, Barnes, Choudhury, Mendy, Ndidi, Perez, Vardy, Iheanacho.
