Team News: Ryan Bertrand returns for Southampton, Swansea City drop Jefferson Montero

Southampton left-back Ryan Bertrand is named in his side's starting XI to face Swansea City, while Jefferson Montero is dropped from the Swans side that played Everton.

Southampton left-back Ryan Bertrand has been named in his side's starting XI for the first time this season after recovering from knee surgery, as Matt Targett misses out against Swansea City this afternoon.

Graziano Pelle returns to the starting XI after missing out against MK Dons with a foot injury, while Victor Wanyama, James Ward-Prowse and Dusan Tadic are also brought back into the side.

Swansea City manager Garry Monk has dropped Jefferson Montero from the side that played Everton last weekend, as Ki Sung-yueng returns in midfield.

Monk has made nine changes from the side that lost 1-0 to Hull City in the League Cup, with Bafetimbi Gomis preferred to Eder up front.

Southampton: Stekelenburg; Cedric, Fonte, Van Dijk, Bertrand; Wanyama, Ward-Prowse; Tadic, Davis, Mane; Pelle
Subs: Davis, Yoshida, Long, Rodriguez, Romeu, Martina, Juanmi

Swansea City: Fabianski; Naughton, Fernandez, Williams, Taylor; Cork, Ki, Shelvey; Sigurdsson, Ayew; Gomis
Subs: Nordfeldt, Rangel, Bartley, Britton, Routledge, Montero, Eder
