Redmond returns for Southampton as Fraser benched again

Southampton midfielder Nathan Redmond (£6.3m) is back in the starting line-up following injury.

He returns to the side just as Moussa Djenepo (£5.4m) drops out with a knock of his own.

It looks as if Redmond will sit next to Sofiane Boufal (£5.5m) in a central attacking midfield duo behind centre-forward Che Adams (£5.7m).

The return of Kevin Danso (£4.5m) will also be welcome news for Ralph Hasenhüttl, who was forced into playing a back-three with Djenepo as a wing-back in the win over Sheffield United.

Visitors Bournemouth have gone with a 4-4-2 formation which features Ryan Fraser (£7.3m) on the bench for a second match running.

On the flanks of midfield are Josh King (£6.3m) and Harry Wilson (£6.0m) while Callum Wilson (£7.8m) and Dominic Solanke (£5.4m) lead the line.

Also of note is another start at left-back for Diego Rico (£4.1m), who offers better value compared to the likes of Nathan Aké (£4.9m) and Steve Cook (£5.0m).

Southampton XI (4-3-2-1): Gunn; Danso, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Cédric; Højbjerg, Romeu, Ward-Prowse; Boufal, Redmond; Adams.

Bournemouth XI (4-4-2): Ramsdale; Rico, Aké, S Cook, Stacey; J King, Lerma, Billing, H Wilson; Solanke, C Wilson.

        Made the transfer of Jota > Callum Wilson minutes before the deadline. Predictably, CW will blank and Jota haul.

          Imagine having a oerfectly fin rV and playing him at LB . .
          And playing a CB at RB.
          Danso struggling at that post, he really is. He's not a full back ffs. Come on, Ralph!

              Way too early to call that, Rover.

              This time last season Palace looked doomed, if I recall correctly.

              Southampton look poor tonight but they're the kind of team who can go out next week and beat Spurs.

              Wilson the next bandwagon 🙁

              What has Bertrand done to be so out of favor?! Switching Bednarek for Danso and hoping he does better, come on! Jeez!

              2 months, 25 days ago

              And now we're doing 3 CB's with Cedric and JwP as WingBacks.

              Should be better, but JwP has never been good as a Wingback in the past. Not optimistc at all.

                  Greenwood plays upfront so unless you’ve entered the matrix it’s not possible let alone crazy

                  Also TAA -> TAA for a hit isn’t recommended 😉
