Southampton fans pleased Wesley Hoedt is injured

Southampton fans have reacted positively to the news that Wesley Hoedt could miss this weekend’s Premier League clash with Watford.

Indeed, speaking in his pre-match press conference, Saints boss Mark Hughes said that Hoedt had a foot injection, and is therefore a doubt to face the Hornets.

Hoedt – valued at £13.5m by Transfermarkt – has been ever-present for Southampton this season, but it would be fair to say that a lot of the club’s supporters have been unimpressed by the defender.

Southampton had kept back-to-back clean sheets ahead of their trip to Manchester City last weekend, but suffered a 6-1 defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

Hughes’ side are currently 16th in the Premier League table, and have two huge games at home to Watford and away to Fulham either side of the international break.

Hoedt is a huge doubt to play this weekend, which would usually be bad news when considering how much he plays, but the Southampton fans are pretty pleased.
