Photos: Southampton players in training including Filip Djuricic

Southampton took to the training ground on Tuesday to prepare for their upcoming match against West Ham United.

Southampton’s players were put through their paces as they prepared for Wednesday’s Premier League match against West Ham United at St Mary’s.

Ronald Koeman’s side are currently third in the table as their outstanding campaign shows no sign faltering.

With Manchester United dropping two points against the Hammers last weekend, Southampton are now one point clear of Louis van Gaal’s side, and they will be hoping to add another three to their tally against Sam Allardyce’s men later this week.

Among those players caught on camera and later posted on Southampton’s official Twitter account was January signing Filip Djuricic.

The 23-year-old attacking midfielder arrived on loan from Portuguese side Benfica late in the January transfer window and he will be hoping for chances to impress Koeman in the coming weeks.

Southampton have been brilliant in recent transfer windows, with the likes of Graziano Pelle, Toby Alderweireld, Sadio Mane, Dusan Tadic and Ryan Bertrand all excelling. But it remains to be seen if Djuricic can follow in their footsteps.
