SAINTS are set to make a late call on winger Moussa Djenepo for Sunday’s Premier League showdown at home against Brighton.

The Malian picked up what appeared to be a groin problem during the first half of Wednesday’s 5-2 defeat at Manchester City.

He was replaced by Nathan Tella against Pep Guardiola’s side and is set to be further assessed on the injury.

“Moussa was out after 30 minutes in the last game,” Hasenhuttl said.

““It doesn’t look that bad, so hopefully he can start training by the end of the week so he can be an alternative for the weekend, but we don’t know it yet.

“Sometimes with Moussa his body reacts in a strange way.

“Sometimes it feels worse than it is in the end, but when you scan him he immediately shows a lot of blood in muscles when he has odd injuries, so we have to pay attention to how tough the injury definitely is.

“This is not so easy for our physios to see clearly, because sometimes he reacts better than they think and when he takes the test it looks better than it should be normally, so it is always tough to decide whether he is available or not.”

Djenepo has played 21 times for Saints in the top flight this season, starting on 14 occasions
