Ronald Koeman confirmed during Sundays’ post-match press-conference that defender Jose Fonte had been withdrawn at half-time due to "pain in his hamstring."
Fonte was replaced at the break by Maya Yoshida as the Saints cruised through the opening forty-five against their south coast rivals AFC Bournemouth. Goals from Steven Davis and Graziano Pelle put Southampton in command but a reshuffle by Eddie Howe changed impetus and the Cherries’ were unlucky to leave St Marys’ empty handed following a gallant second half display. Koeman will be hoping that Fonte can make the trip to Wearside next weekend as his withdrawal appears to be more of a precaution "It wasn’t big, but we didn’t want to take any risks," but further tests will confirm the extent of the any damage. If Fonte does miss game week twelve, then a two-week international break should see the 31-year-old return for their next Premier League match against Stoke City. Nov 2 - 4:48 AM
