Saints trio left behind

Ryan Bertrand, Matt Targett and Cedric Soares have all not travelled to Milan for Thursday's clash with Inter in the Europa League.

Saints boss Claude Puel has named a 21-man squad for the tie but injured trio Bertrand, Targett and Cedric have all not been included and will instead stay in England to work on their fitness.

Charlie Austin, Steven Davis and Jose Fonte, who were rested for the previous Europa League game against Hapoel Be'er Sheva, have all travelled, while summer signing Sofiane Boufal is also among the squad as he hopes to make his debut against the Serie A giants.

Youngster Olufela Olomola is again in the first-team squad, alongside Sam McQueen and Harrison Reed.
