Southampton vs Watford LIVE: Build-up and team news from St Mary's Stadium

Good afternoon and welcome to Southampton!

We’re here as Watford travel to face the Saints at a rain-soaked St Mary’s Stadium.

The Hornets will be keen to set the record straight after falling to a 1-0 defeat against out-of-form Newcastle last weekend, with Javi Gracia keen to ensure that thunder doesn’t strike twice.

The Saints are on a poor run of form themselves having failed to win in seven Premier League games, although they’ll be keen to put things right in front of their own fans.

Watford are set to be without Etienne Capoue for this one due to the midfielder serving a one-match suspension, meaning that opportunity looks likely to come knocking for Nathaniel Chalobah.

As ever, we’ll have all of the build-up, team news, action and reaction as the afternoon unfolds.
