Sports Mole looks at how Southampton could line up against Brighton & Hove Albion in Sunday's Premier League clash.

Ralph Hasenhuttl is expected to recall a number of players to Southampton's starting lineup for Sunday's crucial clash with fellow strugglers Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Saints were down 5-2 to Manchester City in midweek to make it just one win in 11 league games, leaving them seven points above the relegation zone.

Kyle Walker-Peters and Takumi Minamino were both rested for that game, while Ibrahima Diallo was a second-half substitute, all having only just returned from injury.

All three players should return to the XI this weekend, though, while Nathan Tella, who impressed in last weekend's win against Sheffield United, is another in line for a recall.

Tella is expected to replace Moussa Djenepo, who suffered an injury in midweek to join Danny Ings, Theo Walcott, William Smallbone, Oriol Romeu and Michael Obafemi on the sidelines.

Che Adams is almost certain to get the nod up top after netting in back-to-back matches for the Saints.

Southampton possible starting lineup: Forster; Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Vestergaard, Bertrand; Armstrong, Diallo, Ward-Prowse, Minamino; Adams, Tella
