James Ward-Prowse was an expected to miss Tuesday night’s Capital One cup game at The Emirates but what was originally thought to be a minor problem has now been confirmed as a stress fracture of the foot ruling the Southampton midfielder out for around ten weeks.
Ward-Prowse began the season in fine form starting all but one game for Southampton; his performances have been a driving force in his side’s superb start to this campaign. But despite his early withdrawal on a stretcher at Swansea concerns were quickly allayed as post-match coach Ronald Koeman revealed - he had spoken to the medical team and the injury was not thought to be serious - the club remained "optimistic" of a return this weekend. However following further testing, a scan confirmed the severity of the injury with an initial prognosis of up to three months out - Victor Wanyama the player most likely to benefit after his winning goal at The Liberty.

Southampton climb into second but the three points at The Liberty came at a cost as James Ward-Prowse and Maya Yoshida are lost to injury.

James Ward-Prowse will be assessed after the Saints midfielder was caught by Swansea debutant Frederico Fernandez midway through the second half resulting in the player leaving the field of play on a stretcher. Although the early signs did not look good post-match Ronald Koeman confirmed that he had spoken with the medical team who advised the problem was "not bad," despite having his ankle fixed in a plastic cast. There was also good news regarding defender Maya Yoshida, his ankle injury only appears to be knock meaning a return next weekend would be realistic with defensive teammate Toby Alderweireld also expected to recover from the minor hamstring injury which sidelined him for the win over Swansea.

James Ward-Prowse hit the post in the in 70th minute but that was as close as either side got in a listless nil-nil draw at St. Mary's.

Dusan Tadic was again active as he looks to replace the creativity lost in midfield that was lost when Adam Lallana left for Liverpool this summer. Fellow Eredivisie alumni Graziano Pelle was less convincing as he managed to miss a couple of solid opportunities presented by Tadic. Ward-Prowse rattled the post but wasn't quite the force he was last weekend against Liverpool. A disappointing result for the Saints who will expect to win matches like this at home.

Southampton have acquired midfielder Saphir Taider on a year-long loan from Inter Milan.

The midfielder is coming over while Dani Osvaldo is headed the other day, also on a year-long loan. Taider is a young prospect who has impressed in both Serie A and the Algerian National team. He excels in taking set pieces and passing, but also had a strong defensive work-rate and can tackle competently. Taider has the potential to be a starter at Southampton this year and he could make an interesting fantasy option depending on his starting price.
