Share this article

Southampton manager Ronald Koeman is without the suspended Victor Wanyama when his team host Chelsea in the Barclays Premier League on Saturday.

The Dutchman does, however, otherwise have a near fully-fit squad from which to choose as Southampton return to competitive action after a two-week break.

His only absentees are Florin Gardos and Jay Rodriguez, though both are back in training and expected to return imminently, once they are again fully fit.

Provisional squad: Forster, Stekelenburg, Gazzaniga, K Davis, Martina, Van Dijk, Fonte, Yoshida, Soares, Bertrand, Clasie, Targett, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, S Davis, Tadic, Mane, Austin, Long, Juanmi.
