Southampton will have to do without midfield linchpin Mario Lemina in Gameweek 12 when they travel to Anfield.
This will be Lemina's third consecutive PL game on the sidelines due to an ankle injury though he is likely to be fit for Gameweek 13 as he is back in training. The Gabonese midfielder's absence means that skipper Steven Davis will continue to partner Oriol Romeu in the holding midfield berth unless Pellegrino decides to keep him further forward or rest him entirely after his World Cup qualifying heartbreak. Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg would deputise in the role beside Romeu if either occurs. Saints manager Mauricio Pellegrino said: "Mario Lemina was training well, much better than before, but I think will not be ready to play Saturday. We think about his problem a few weeks ago and he has improved a lot but still already it is too soon to put him again on the pitch." Thu, Nov 16, 2017 06:47:00 PM
