Wesley Hoedt on bench for Southampton against Huddersfield Town

"We know that we have a hard game away on Saturday against a tough team".

Brighton and Hove Albion failed to make Miguel Britos pay for his moment of madness as it was held to a 0-0 draw at 10-man Watford.

Hosts Huddersfield, trailing only Manchester United after two matches on their top-flight return, was kept at bay by Saints goalkeeper Fraser Forster and Mauricio Pellegrino's side improved after the interval, gaining a foothold in midfield and frustrating their newly-promoted opposition. Steve Mounie and Thomas Ince went closest for Huddersfield, while Southampton defender Ryan Bertrand had a late header cleared off the line by Tommy Smith.

Wagner wants midfielder Sabiri and right-back Hadergjonaj to do some work in training before coming into contention after the global break.

It means that the Saints have scored just once from open play in three games this season, highlighting the side's issues up-front. The Irons slumped to their third straight loss, 3-0 away to Newcastle.

Sterling's joy was short-lived, however, as he was shown a second yellow card - resulting in a red - for going into the crowd to celebrate his second goal in a week.

"The best news is we can compete in a tough game, we can control the opponent when we manage the ball, and in the first three games I think we deserve to win the first two".

"It is absolute madness". "We have agreed personal terms and we have also spoken to Leeds".

In London, goals either side of the break to Tammy Abraham and Jordan Ayew gave Swansea a 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace at Selhurst Park.
