Puel: We'll keep the squad fresh

By SFC Media Wed 21 Sep Saints vs Palace

Claude Puel has reiterated the importance of keeping his squad energised throughout the campaign.

Puel made seven changes for the Europa League victory over Sparta Praha, before making a further six against Swansea City.

With fixtures coming thick and fast in a multitude of competitions, there may be opportunity for some of the younger players to gain further exposure to the first-team on Wednesday night.

When asked whether he would make changes once more, Puel said: “We will see and assess the squad’s availability for tomorrow to see the different possibilities.

“But perhaps there will be changes for this game because it’s important that we keep a good energy level to the team.

“We’re currently playing every two or three days and we want to make sure we win every time.”
