Ralph Hasenhüttl has no fresh injury concerns to contend with ahead of Sunday's Emirates FA Cup semi-final showdown with Leicester at Wembley Stadium.

With the Saints squad coming out of Monday’s Premier League loss at West Brom with a clean bill of health, the only absentee from the trip to The Hawthorns will be loanee Takumi Minamino, who is cup tied.

Elsewhere, the manager confirmed striker Michael Obafemi has returned to training following a muscle injury that has ruled him out since January, but will not be ready for a return to action in the capital this weekend.

“No more injuries from the last game,” Hasenhüttl said. “We still have everybody, and a few players are coming back for the first time in a long time.

“Michael Obafemi is back in training but it’s too early for playing a game at the weekend, so still with Will Smallbone and Oriol Romeu we have two players out and the rest are training with us at the moment.”
