Southampton v Watford Team News

Saints boss Mauricio Pellegrino claims his key option to the back-line Virgil van Dijk is not ready yet to proceed to duty - but except for him, the Argentinian has a fully refreshed squad ahead of the Watford game.

From the Watford ranks, José Holebas makes a return after the sending off he faced in the Carabao Cup second-round 3-2 home reverse to Bristol City and despite that slip-up, Watford are still unbeaten in the Premier League following two draws to Liverpool and Brighton, and a 0-2 success at Bournemouth in between.

The Saints have shown an identical performance to the Hornets, having drawn two against Swansea and Huddersfield, with one win snatched against West Ham on the second matchweek.
