Stuart Armstrong and Alex McCarthy are fit to play for Southampton in Saturday's away trip to Bournemouth, Sky Sports News understands.

Forward Armstrong limped off in the second half of Scotland's friendly defeat to Portugal, while goalkeeper Alex McCarthy pulled out of the England squad with a knock before the draw in Croatia.

But Sky Sports News has been told the Saints have a full squad to choose from on Saturday as they look to arrest a run of four Premier League games without a win, including three defeats.

Southampton have earned five points from their opening eight Premier League games and trail their south-coast rivals by 11 points ahead of Saturday's match at the Vitality Stadium.

Bournemouth approach this game in good form after beating Watford 4-0 at Vicarage Road before the international break to record their biggest away win in the Premier League.
