SAINTS boss Ralph Hasenhüttl has revealed that he will only be without one player for the match against Crystal Palace.

Palace travel to the south coast for the Premier League match against Southampton on Saturday and will be facing a near full-strength side.

The only absentee for the Saints will be Tino Livramento who suffered an ACL injury during Southampton’s 2-2 draw with Brighton last weekend. 

Hasenhüttl told the media: “It’s a big blow for him and also for us.

"He had his first very good year for us, he has shown that he is absolutely a Premier League player, and this helps you when you go into rehab for such a long time.

“To come back even stronger, hopefully. We have a very good team here that is taking care of him.

“Hopefully, the surgery is perfect and then we have a lot of time to work with him.

“We have no more injuries other than Tino. The team had a very good session yesterday.”

Palace will be hoping to build on the point that they earned in the goalless draw against Leeds on Monday.
