FPL bosses take note: Update on fitness of Southampton pair emerges

Southampton take on Norwich

South Coast outfit Southampton will be hoping that they can continue their good recent form against Norwich, who sit bottom of the Premier League but may benefit from a new manager bounce after appointing Dean Smith earlier this week.

After Southampton’s 1-0 win over his former side Aston Villa proved a bridge too far for Dean Smith, he returns at the head of the East Anglian outfit hoping to end the Saints’ 4-game unbeaten run, which has seen them climb to 13th in the Premier League after a poor start.

Livramento and Ward-Prowse hand Southampton double boost

Now, Southampton have been handed a double boost ahead of the clash, as updates have emerged on both James Ward-Prowse and Tino Livramento.

The pair were forced to withdraw from the England and England U21 squads through injury, prompting speculation as to whether they would be fit in time for the return of the Premier League.

However, Ralph Hasenhuttl confirmed that both will be ready to make a contribution this weekend, handing FPL bosses up and down the country a massive boost.

Will the pair help Southampton to get a much needed three points?
