Rafa Benitez expects Matt Ritchie and Christian Atsu to be available for the trip to Southampton next weekend despite the pair withdrawing from international duty.
Ghana confirmed on Wednesday that Atsu would not feature in the World Cup qualifying game against Uganda due to an ongoing injury. The specifics of problem were not confirmed, but speaking this week, Benitez revealed the winger "has a little bit of discomfort in his knee" which the club are carefully managing. It is understood that Atsu received injections earlier in the campaign to delay the possibility of surgery which could rule him out for up-to 3 months. Although he was unable to start at Swansea recently, he has been named in the XI for every other Premier League match. Ritchie on the other hand was omitted from the Scotland squad because of a minor thigh issue. "He’s been playing too many games," Benitez said. "He had a little bit of discomfort and [after] talking with the doctor it was better that we didn’t take a risk." Oct 6 - 7:23 AM
