Lambert decision for new boss

Southampton’s new manager Mauricio Pochettino must decide whether to bring top scorer Rickie Lambert back into the starting line-up for the clash with Everton.

Lambert came off the bench to head his 10th Premier League goal of the season in Wednesday’s 2-2 draw at Chelsea.

Pochettino, taking charge of his first game since replacing Nigel Adkins, will monitor the fitness of Adam Lallana who has returned to light training after a knee injury.

Provisional squad: K Davis, Gazzaniga, Boruc, Clyne, Richardson, Stephens, Fox, Shaw, Yoshida, Hooiveld, Martin, Reeves, Ward-Prowse, Do Prado, Cork, Chaplow, De Ridder, Ramirez, Schneiderlin, S Davis, Puncheon, Lee, Lambert, Rodriguez, Lallana.
