Southampton Fans

Here is how Southampton will line up to face Vitesse Arnhem tonight.

Southampton starting XI: Stekelenburg; Caulker, Fonte, Yoshida, Martina; Wanyama, S. Davis, Ward-Prowse; Tadić, Mané, Pellè.

Southampton substitutes: K. Davis, Cédric, Rodriguez, Reed, Juanmi, Targett, McQueen.

Southampton's Europa League campaign continues tonight as they face Dutch side Vitesse in the second leg of their qualifying match this evening.

The Saints obliterated Vitesse last week, running out 3-0 winners at St. Mary's Stadium thanks to goals from Graziano Pelle, Dusan Tadic and Shane Long.

Now, manager Ronald Koeman takes his side to his home country to take on Vitesse again, with Southampton expected to cruise through in style.

His team selection sees new signing Steven Caulker start the game in defence, though it's not yet clear whether he or Maya Yoshida will start at right back, with Cedric on the bench.

Dusan Tadic and Sadio Mane will flank Graziano Pelle, with Jay Rodriguez handed a place on the bench as he continues to make his return from injury.

Koeman is without Shane Long and Jordy Clasie, but James Ward-Prowse returns in midfield as the Saints name a strong side despite the upcoming Premier League kickoff against Newcastle this weekend.
