Oriol Romeu returns from a one-match ban for Southampton's home game against Tottenham on Wednesday.

But Saints will be without fellow midfielder Jordy Clasie, who looks likely to miss the festive period with a groin problem.

Full-back Matt Targett (hamstring) and striker Charlie Austin (shoulder) are both long-term injury absentees.

For Spurs, Mousa Dembele and Toby Alderweireld have shaken off foot and back problems respectively while Vincent Janssen should be on the bench after recovering from an ankle injury. Erik Lamela, however, remains unavailable due to a sore hip.

Provisional Southampton squad: Forster, Fonte, Bertrand, Soares, van Dijk, Martina, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Romeu, Redmond, Taylor, Yoshida, Davis, McQueen, Reed, Long, Sims, Rodriguez, Boufal, Tadic.

Provisional Spurs squad: Lloris, Vorm, Lopez, Rose, Davies, Vertonghen, Alderweireld, Dier, Carter-Vickers, Wimmer, Walker, Trippier, Wanyama, Winks, Dembele, Eriksen, Alli, Sissoko, Onomah, Nkoudou, Son, Kane, Janssen.

Southampton midfielder Harrison Reed has signed a new deal running until June 2021.

Reed, 21, has made 25 appearances for the club so far, featuring heavily in cup competitions.

Obviously I am absolutely over the moon to commit my future to this club. It’s what I’ve been working towards for the last three to four years, so I am really pleased.

It’s been full of a lot of ups and downs, but obviously I am absolutely delighted to be signing at this club. I am just looking to push on from here. I know this is the right place for me, you see it time after time that young players get the opportunities here. They progress on the pitch and get better as players and that’s what I want to do.
