Southampton striker Jay Rodriguez has returned to full training after spending the last year sidelined with a knee injury.
The 25-year-old has not played since the Saints’ 4-1 defeat at Manchester City in April 2014 but could return to action before the end of the current campaign.
Ronald Koeman’s side are 1.72 to clinch a top-six spot this season and 1.90 to beat Sunderland at the Stadium of Light this weekend.
We were eighth last year and we still think we can get a top-six finish.
Meanwhile, the club’s executive director Les Reed says Southampton want to be playing Champions League football within five years.
He said: “We’d like to think we have the structure to [reach the Champions League] in the next five years. But it’s important to be established as a top-six club over that period.
“For us, we have proven we were not a flash in the pan in terms of the Premier League, we were eighth last year and we still think we can get a top-six finish.”
