Southampton will have Spanish defensive midfielder Oriol Romeu available for their match against Chelsea on Tuesday.
Romeu, 25, has been hugely important to Southampton's defensive strength this season in spite of losing Jose Fonte to West Ham and Virgil Van Dijk to injury. He has been very effective in controlling the space in front of the back four, making tackles and interceptions at a higher rate than any of his teammates. Romeu will presumably retake his place in the starting XI on Tuesday when the Saints visit Stamford Bridge after serving a two match suspension for accumulating ten yellow cards this season. His manager has lauded him in his pre-match press conference, comparing him to PL Player of the Season N'Golo Kanté: ""I think he’s not far off Kante," Puel said. "If we see the quality of his games since the beginning of the season, for me, he [Romeu] is not far off Kante because he’s very consistent and every game he gives good performances, with consistency and quality."
