Southampton v Chelsea preview

Adam Lallana: Nursing a knee complaint

Right-back Nathaniel Clyne could feature at St Mary's after a knee complaint of his own, while 18-year-old James Ward-Prowse is expected to be handed a starting berth.

Gaston Ramirez is available to feature despite sustaining a dead leg against Arsenal on New Year's Day. Zambia international Emmanuel Mayuka leaves for the Africa Cup of Nations after the game.

Chelsea are likely to ask Ross Turnbull to continue deputising for the injured Petr Cech, with the Blues' first-choice goalkeeper struggling with a groin injury.

Rafa Benitez will also be without club captain John Terry and Oriol Romeu (both knee), but would have been looking to shuffle his pack anyway in an effort to offer rest time to key men.

Yossi Benayoun could come back into contention for the Blues after returning to Stamford Bridge from a loan spell at West Ham.
