Claude Puel has revealed that Manolo Gabbiadini will be back in the Southampton squad for the clash against Manchester City.
Gabbiadini has been out with a groin problem sustained in the game against Tottenham Hotspur last month.
Puel said: “He is likely to come back into the squad and we will see if he can start, or perhaps come on in the second-half of the game.
“We will wait to see this in tomorrow’s training session.”
And another boost ahead of the meeting with Pep Guardiola’s side is the return of Steven Davis, who has recovered from the ankle injury he suffered in the 3-1 success over Crystal Palace.
Puel added: “For Davo he will be available for the team again.”
