Chris Hughton could name an unchanged side from the one thrashed 4-0 at Old Trafford when Southampton face Norwich on Saturday.
Hughton has warned against complacency but may keep the faith with the same side that were punished by late Manchester United goals last Saturday.
The Canaries boss revealed fringe midfielder Andrew Surman - who last featured in the FA Cup defeat against Luton on January 26 - was likely to be sidelined for the rest of the campaign after surgery on his knee problem.
"It is a small ligament operation, which will keep him out probably for the season, but we will assess that when we see how he recovers," Hughton said.
Norway international midfielder Alex Tettey (knee) also remains out, as does England goalkeeper John Ruddy, who continues his rehabilitation from a thigh surgery.
