Ryan Sessegnon has expressed his concern for Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse’s in and wished him a speedy recovery after a coming together between the pair during the FA Cup fourth-round replay last night.
Ward-Prowse required oxygen after being caught on the knee while trying to block Sessegnon’s clearance in the first half and had to be stretchered off.
He was stretchered off the field with the scores tied at 1-1 with a deep gash in his leg which saw his team-mate Shane Long overheard on television claiming that he could see his bone (Daily Mail).
Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl said after the game that he is confident that the injury isn’t something to be too concerned about (BBC Sport).
However, Sessegnon took to social media to send a message to the 26-year-old after the unfortunate incident.

Dele Alli, who made a crucial contribution after coming on from the bench just after the hour mark, also took to social media to reveal his delight at the win.
The 23-year-old linked well with Lucas Moura for the second goal and played a lovely pass into Son’s path which led to the late penalty which the South Korean converted.

Spurs Web Opinion
Given the players we had out injured and the fact that we had such a difficult game on Sunday, we cannot complain too much about the lack of intensity during certain phases of the match. What was important was that we got the win and the team showed tremendous character to turn the game around after going 2-1 down.
