Ralph Hasenhüttl has reported a clean bill of health for his Southampton squad ahead of Saturday’s trip to Brighton.

Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy was absent from the meeting with Liverpool last weekend, with Fraser Forster taking his place on the bench, but is now back in training.

Meanwhile, the boss praised the influence of substitute Danny Ings against the Reds, after the striker came on to score against his former club.

“I think he had a good game, impacting the game like all the substitutes so far,” Hasenhüttl said.

“Moussa (Djenepo) and Stuey (Armstrong) were also immediately in the game and had a positive impact.

“We know we have a squad with a lot of options, especially in the offensive line, and this week I’ve seen a lot of players working hard to try and come into the squad.

“At the moment, we don’t have any injuries. Alex (McCarthy) had a little problem last week, but now he is fit again. We have a lot of options for a few positions.”
