Ralph Hessenhuttl has revealed that Tino Livramento may need surgery for a knee injury after Southampton’s 10-man side won the FA Cup in extra time at Swansea.
Nathan Redmond, Mohamed El Younosi and Shane Long scored as Southampton reached the fourth round of the competition with a 3-2 victory.
The Saints played most of the match with ten men after Jan Valery was sent off for two bookable offenses within half an hour.
Saints captain James Ward-Prowse has made a right-back position and could do so again in Tuesday’s Premier League game against Brentford, with suspended Valerie joining Livramento’s agent Walker Peters on the sidelines.
“I’m going to ask my captain what he has to say,” Hassnotl said of the possibility of Ward Prowse playing at right-back against Brentford.
Teenage Liframento has been fantastic for Southampton since joining from Chelsea in a £5m deal in August.
The 19-year-old made 18 appearances in the Premier League and last appeared in a Boxing Day win over West Ham.
On Livramento’s injury, Hasenotl said: “The meniscus injury, even if it’s mild…I know this from my son, it’s been a year.
“We don’t know. Right now we’re trying it without surgery, but we have to look at how seriously it is.”
“It’s always an alarm for me when (the medical team) doesn’t want to talk.
“It’s not good when they don’t come to me. But I will go to them every day and ask them.”
The draw was played behind closed doors due to the Welsh government’s coronavirus regulations, and Hasenhuttl said: “It was a strange situation because we are not used to it anymore.
“But I know we can fight back. I know we have a team with great passion and workload, but the matches this week are now coming in really fast.
“It won’t get any easier with Brentford on Tuesday.”
Swansea equalized into extra time when Joel Perroy scored his 13th goal of the season after 77 minutes.
A Jan Bednarek goal put him ahead four minutes into extra time, but Al Yonosi immediately leveled the score, and Long’s first goal since February 2020 settled matters.
Swansea have not played since December 11 due to delays due to the Corona virus, but this was the fourth defeat in a row for Russell Martin’s team.
Martin said: “I was really hurt by the way we lost that match. It was not acceptable. Keeping playing for so long without a match didn’t help, but that’s no excuse.
“We shouldn’t concede goals like the last two – one long kick and we are open.
“Our reaction to losing the ball was not good enough. But there were also some good things that I liked, given the circumstances and the fact that we were trying to form a new format.”
