"He has a fracture on his ankle and definitely this season is over for him. It will take a minimum of three months until he is back."

, another star of the Saints is set to miss the Monday match and the injury crisis of Hasenhuttl’s side will continue. Southampton have started the season so well but their form declined after so many injuries.

"This season is a never-ending story,"

said Hasenhuttl.

"Since our fantastic run in autumn we started with the (Danny) Ings injury and then we had Jannick (Vestergaard) out, now Kyle out, so that was how it started and it never ended.

"It was clear it was hard to end, because we had the most intense time over Christmas with less chances to rotate so you always play the players until they are injured.

"Ibra then Theo were out, so it was always a problem with never playing with the best possible team.

"But we are not the only team which struggled with injuries, but for us it has hurt us very much this season, yes."
