Saints boss Ronald Koeman rated Long’s chances of beating a hamstring problem as “50-50” ahead of the Dean Court trip and the club will take no chances on his fitness, with Sadio Mane or Graziano Pelle poised to replace him in the starting line-up.

Victor Wanyama will sit out the third game of his five-match ban, imposed after his three red cards this season, while Florian Gardos and Jay Rodriguez are not yet ready to make their returns to the first-team set-up.

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.
