Saints have no new injury concerns ahead of the Europa League clash at St Mary’s but their club-record signing is not yet ready to participate.

“All the team is OK for this game,” said Puel, who is without a win at his new club.

“Boufal continues his preparation but for the others it’s good.”

The Frenchman expects to make changes because he thinks it is important to “give confidence to the whole squad, and of course get a good result”.

Last season Southampton were knocked out at the play-off stage by Midtjylland of Denmark, having beaten Vitesse Arnhem after entering at the third qualifying round.
