Saints have suffered further injury woe after it was confirmed that Victor Wanyama is set for an extended spell on the sidelines.

Mauricio Pochettino has reported that the midfielder suffered a hairline fracture in his leg during the game against Aston Villa.

The Saints boss refused to put an exact timescale on his recovery but he is unlikely to feature again this year.

Pochettino is facing mounting injury problems ahead of the visit of Manchester City to St Mary's tomorrow.

Nathaniel Clyne is also out after hobbling off in the Villa game.

He joins Wanyama, Artur Boruc, Kelvin Davis, Morgan Schneiderlin, Danny Fox and Guly do Prado in being unavailable for the game.

Jose Fonte is only rated as touch and go to be fit and will face a late fitness test.

The one crumb of comfort is the return of Gaston Ramirez who has been sidelined by a heavy cold.

Pochettino said: "It’s clear that injuries are the worst aspect of football. Nobody wants to be injured and it’s the most negative aspect and we have been unlucky of late with all these injuries coming more or less at the same time.

"We need to be strong, we need to keep on believing, keep on thinking we can be strong and understand these things can happen in football. That’s normal.

"Right now we are going through that moment and we just need to keep on looking forward positively into the future."

Our current goal difference is 5. If we end this game with a plus GD, then it won't be all bad.
Any points will be a bonus, as I can't see them gifting us 2 goals, like they did last season.

What a challenge. But as long as Davis and Cork can keep up the intensity in the middle then Gaston and Chambers can show their worth over this heavy period. We will do ok.

We will no doubt missing the power of Victor but we do have the luxury to call on one of last seasons star players in Jack Cork. It's now time for him to stand up and win his spot back for the remainder of the season! Davis has been one of our most consistent players recently so I see no reason why JWP, Cork and Davis can't hold there own against city!
Chambers replacing Clyne doesn't frighten me either, this will be a massive challenge but one all the fringe players should looking forward to! Coyr

Well this is a great chance for Cork to step up...he was a close 2nd in player of the season last year and if anything just needs games now to get his sharpness back. I am more concerned about the defence and our inability to put our chances away. If we don't do that against City you can bet they will put theirs away!

Can people please stop referring to Victor as ‘The Beast’ please? If you didn’t know, this is also the nickname given to the world’s worst (or best, depending on how you look at it) serial killer. His real name is Luis Garavito and it’s estimated that he killed over 400 people (mainly children) on the streets of Columbia during the 1990s. Now, as questionable as that first touch against Hull was, I don’t think Victor’s really done anything to rank him alongside Senor Garavito, so I think a new nickname is required.

Are you a spiritual man, sasmike? I don't know about you, but at difficult times like these (and make no mistake; our injury list makes these very difficult times indeed) I like to look to the teachings of the east, in particular to the Hare Krishna mantra. Are you interested? You simply have to repeat the phrase "Hare Rama Hare Rama, Rama Rama Hare Hare, Hare Krishna Hare Krishna, Krishna Krishna Hare Hare" over and over until you've dispelled the evil of Kali. I find it a huge comfert.

why?
if BIG Vic is out for 6-8 weeks then the 5 yellow rule wont count. the rules say that a player picks up 5 yellows between the start of the season and the 31st dec they get a 1 game ban then a two game ban if they get 10 yellow cards by early april.
so you would have risked injuring BIG Vic further and losing him for longer so that he could sit out a 1 game ban that he really wont stand a chance of getting!

"Why? There are a lot of injured Southampton players right now. I was just making a joke."

I'm a little concerned about the extent of our injuries. They've all come at once, worse luck. As was said at the start of the season, we'll be fine with one injury here and there, but if we lose too many at once we are going to find it hardly. I'm afraid we are in damage limitation mode at the moment. We might just have to readjust our expectations for the rest of this calendar year. I think those of us who made bets on "Saints top at Xmas" are going to lose out. Mid-table is more realistic with out upcoming fixtures and several key players out or weakened. Oh well. Better than League Two I suppose.

I got the gist with Google translate. Thanks.

I'm also a bit concerned, but I'm still confident we'll be okay and finish above halfway. Given a run in the team, the players so many on here are slating will shake of the rust and do a job for us. I really don't understand the kneejerk negativity of so many of our so-called supporters.

Wanyama is a top player for us, but not irreplaceable. Cork can get a run of games and, as long as Spiderman is back after this weekend, they can reform their quality partnership from last season.

Spiderman is more important IMO, so let's hope he's back after the Man City game and everything should be OK, Didn't we beat Man City last season with Cork and Spidey in the middle?

I was one of Gazzanigga's biggest critics, last season, and rightly so because he made too many mistakes.

Was he in anyway to blame for any of the Villa goals? Absolutely not.

If you must criticise, have the decency to point out why the player deserves criticism and support it wih facts.

Are you a spiritual man, sasmike?

I think that Gazza is suffering from the same problem Bart had lack of game time in the real world.Training all very well but nothing like getting focussed in a real situation.I also think for people to slag off Maya who had not had a Prem league situation for 4 plus months and then to slot in effortlessly was unfair.I thought towards the end of last season he was outstanding for us.So I was expecting him to partner Lovren but up to present injuries the managers call has been right.So what I am trying to say is team rotation is fine when everyone gets a look in but in our case it seems to be when people are injured

Still expecting a cracker tomorrow and give Gazza a chance 2 of Villas goals would have beaten anyone.

Yep. It's hard for players like Cork, had an outstanding season then doesn't feature, even as first choice sub for his position then he suddenly comes in due to injury. Rusty and trying too hard is going to lead to errors, yet I felt he had a decent game despite all that. To keep players like him happy and match fit maybe we have to rotate a bit but then some say always play your best 11, well if you do as soon as you have an injury you will be bringing in a bit part player.

This month is shaping up to be a potential nightmare. We have a mega-busy month and we're playing some of the very best teams in the league with half our starting 11 missing. Things could go very badly indeed.

However, if we turn up and shout and sing like mental we have half a chance. So given that's the only thing any of us can control, let's do that. Say it once, say it loud: we're Saints and we're proud.

Precisely. That was always Fergie's big thing. He always gave fringe players a run out in the starting 11 early in the season for no apparent reason, and results would suffer initially as a result. But that experience would pay dividends later in the season when injuries bit and those fringe players were called upon. It's why United always mysteriously came from behind to win the league year after year. (The irritating fcukers!)

That's a joke, surely.

First one; Yoshida nowhere then as soon as Lovren had missed the tackle, it was two attackers against one goalkeeper.

Second one; inch perfect cross to a player who had shaken off two defenders, header from under six yards.

Third one, a bullet into the top corner.

Rather than worrying about ratios, tell us which of those were Gazzas fault.

So what!
Our team are probably the fittest in the country, they statistically put more miles and tackles in than almost all the rest of the Prem.
This energy sapping effort, as with any athelete will bring injury in itself, so we are lucky it hasn't happened earlier.
We got points in the bank.

It is time to look at ourselves as supporters.

We have to go to SMS tomorrow and give as much vocal support as we can muster.
We were a disgrace on Wednesday, our team tried their guts out battling 9 defenders and a carp referee.
We generally stayed quiet or moaned that we missed opportunities and threw away the points.
I know we can't kick the ball in for them but what we can and should do is shake SMS to its foundations to get our team through.
Lets start tomorrow!

It appears I've hit a nerve, thank you for your comment.
F.Y.Info. I do sing and cheer, always have for over 50 years!
It seems ironic that my post has had the disappointing effect of irritating one of the few that were trying to lift our team.
Strangely at this time no comment from our mute supporters.

Good man, I'm not irritated Oldboy, just saying. I sing and shout through every game too. Always have, always will and I never make derogatory remarks to our players if they're havng a bad game. Fascinated that my confession gets the thumbs down though not that I care.

Gazza had another chance and blew it completely - 3 shots 3 goals. What is Codie Cropper like?
And why do you think Gazzaniga should shoulder the blame?
Shot to goal ratio?
Much too simplistic.

Today.s players are super fit but are they too fit, too lean , meaning maybe if they have more blubber some of the current crop of injuries might not have happened?

Still expecting a cracker tomorrow and give Gazza a chance 2 of Villas goals would have beaten anyone.

COYR. A cheeky 1 0 will do me....
Are you suggesting that fat is protective?

Haven't got a clue why anyone is moaning 5 years ago we only had 1 or 2 players fit to wear the shirt now we have some top quality YOUNG stars who are keeping us above united. Yes we are on a bad spell but losing away to arsenal and Chelsea would be no disgrace to city or Liverpool or spurs. Stop whinging and appreciate the fact that we are constantly on the up and give the players a reason not to leave when the big offers come which they will. If we get spanked tomorrow with a patched up team I will certainly keep on singing and be proud of what Markus, Nicola, Adz and the lads have achieved. Up the saints.

Hope the spell and punctuation please don't batter me to much.

It could be worse. We could be playing our best team and be getting regularly stuffed by the Aussies.
