Pellegrino will be desperate to make sure that the surprise loss on Wednesday was a one-off and will have been buoyed by the news that he has no new concerns to his Southampton first-team squad.

As for the visitors, Mauricio Pellegrino's side drew their opener to Swansea City and won their last game to West Ham United.

Watford and Brighton could not be seperated as they played out a goalless draw at Vicarage Road on Saturday.

Huddersfield were the better side but goalkeeper Fraser Forster kept them at bay with saves from new signings Steve Mounie and Tom Ince.

The Saints go into the fixture with the Terriers after a shock defeat to lower league opposition in Wolverhampton Wanderers, however, they have managed to take four points from their opening two league games.

"We will go into this global break with a smile on our face".

Earlier, a scrambled last-gasp victor from Raheem Sterling gave Manchester City a 2-1 victory at Bournemouth.

"We'd like to sign Rob Green", Wagner revealed after seeing his side follow up successive league wins with a deserved point against Southampton.

"We are not happy with yesterday's result - the only positive thing for the future is that we will have more time to prepare for Premier League games". Especially because I thought we played well. We were really close to winning but this is football. This was really tough but we could win, we could also lose.

The newly-promoted Terriers have enjoyed a dream start to their first-ever Premier League season, following up a 3-0 win at Crystal Palace with a 1-0 victory over Newcastle.
