• Moroccans abroad: Southampton will assess the extent of the ankle injury suffered by Sofiane Boufal

    Saints will today assess the injury to Sofiane Boufal with fears he could become the latest player forced out of the EFL Cup final.

    The club record signing came off early in the second half of the defeat with West Ham after injuring his ankle.

    He looked in some discomfort as he was helped from the pitch, and manager Claude Puel admitted the club will try and ascertain the extent of the problem today.

    “For Sofiane it is the ankle and we will see how long he stays out. I hope it’s not important for us,” said Puel, who already has a lengthy enough injury list with just under three weeks to go until the Wembley showpiece.

    “We will see this in the next days. I think now of course it’s an important player for us and we hope he can stay at the level for the next game and for the final also.

    “I hope but we will see this on Monday.”
