Mark Hughes has reported a fully-fit squad for Southampton’s trip to Premier League leaders Manchester City.

Danish midfielder Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, who missed the goalless draw with Newcastle United last weekend through illness, is back in contention.

City top the table on goal difference from Liverpool, but could be deposed by Liverpool before Sunday’s game gets under way at the Etihad Stadium.

“We’ve got a clean bill of health,” revealed Saints boss Hughes.

“Pierre-Emile Højbjerg is over his illness – he’s trained, so he’s available, and everybody else is fit and available.”
