Stars out injured
Southampton stars Maya Yoshida and Jay Rodriguez will both face time on the sidelines after both sustaining injuries in the clubs last fixture.
Southampton faced Norwich at St.Mary's and despite winning 2-0, with goals coming from Mark Wells and Kazim Kazim which were their first goals for the club, Saint's game was marred by the injuries of two of their star performers.
Jay Rodriguez was forced off after only 2 minutes, as he twisted his knee whilst attempting to escape a challenge. Manager Chris Kamara was understandably annoyed as the club physio told him his star striker Rodriguez would miss 2 weeks of action.
Yoshida was taken off in the second half as he was pulled down by Matthew Briggs, and he landed on his ankle, and sprained it which will reportedly keep him out for 7 weeks to come. This is a major problem for the club as Yoshida had been on top form, but now faces time out.
These injuries, combined with Rickie Lambert and Adam Lallana's recent periods out with injury, have not neccesarily had a bad effect on the side yet, as Southampton sit on top of the table after 7 games.
