Mendy

Zouma AC Rudi

James Kova Jorgi Chilwell

Mount Ziyech 

Giroud 

Can see a few changes for this game. Dave looked leggy tonight so could see him rested before AM. Alonso I think also gets this one off and will return for AM. Can see Ziyech getting some minutes and Soton are one of those teams that will let him play a little more, so wouldn't be surprised to see him start. 

Mount to captain.

Surprised to hear TT has given the players 2 days off. 

A reward for results. Also with Atleti in mind.

I am VERY uncertain about the lineup for this match.

Do we really have any chance against AM - maybe now, having their "home game" away from Madrid, so in that case I fully agree with you.

And Saints are really having troubles times - last 5 matches lost, one hugely.

Here's my suggestion:

                         Kepa

James - Rüdiger - Christ - Emerson

                         Kante(C)

           Mount - Ziyech - Gilmour

                  CHO - Werner

Bench:

Mendy, Chilwell, Jorginho, Kova, Alonso, Pulisic,

Kante, Pulisic, Ziyech, RJ, Chilwell can slot in easily without much issue

Mendy

RJ AC Rudi Chilwell

Kante Jorginho

Ziyech Mount Pulisic 

Giroud

I hope for this team. Rest Azpi, Alonso, Kova, Werner, CHO and play to the strengths of Chilwell and RJ.

I don't think we will ever see Kante used as a loan DM again.  

Gilmour - interesting.  If Gilmour does ever start a PL game this season, then this is his best chance.
I'd still be surprised if he starts though.  I think he has drawn the short straw of just making up squad numbers while other young players get the privilege of going out on loan.

Well, Kante came on against Newcastle and he did play DM, didn't he? Or very defensive, anyway :)

Bit of a weird sub that one.  Mount off for Kante at 2-0 up.  Presuming it was to get some minutes into Kante's legs rather than anything else, as I'd have thought Pulisic/Ziyech would have been a more like for like change at a point we were very comfortable in the game. 

Or maybe he wanted to see what the balance was like with the 3 in middle of the midfield before the Atletico game? (Kind of hope we don't see it tbh)
