Manager Ralph Hasenhüttl has a full-strength squad to pick from for Saturday’s Premier League trip to Arsenal.

Recording no fresh injury concerns following the international break, Saints are further boosted by the return of Ryan Bertrand, who has now completed his three-match suspension.

Finalising preparations before heading to the Emirates Stadium, Hasenhüttl also highlighted the potential benefit of players enjoying a fruitful fortnight with their respective national teams.

The manager said: “Everyone is back fit and with a few successful experiences for the players with their national teams.

“Jan Bednarek qualified, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg is qualified (both for EURO 2020) and a few others have scored, so they come back with some positive experiences and that’s good for us.

“It’s also good that Ryan Bertrand is back after suspension from the Leicester game. I have the whole squad now available and I can pick the eleven that fits perfect to the shape which we play and the opponent we play against.”
