Saints two still missing for Irons

Southampton will again be without Graziano Pelle and Cedric Soares for tomorrow’s visit to to Upton park.

Both players were absent for the Boxing Day win against Arsenal and manager Ronald Koeman confirmed they will again be missing at Upton Park.

Italy striker Pelle is facing a few weeks on the sidelines with a knee complaint, while right-back Cedric has a groin injury.

The Saints were mightily impressive against the Gunners and are unlikely to make major changes.

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