Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse was taken off on a stretcher after suffering a suspected knee injury in the first half of Wednesday's FA Cup fourth-round replay at Tottenham.

The England international was hurt trying to block Ryan Sessegnon's clearance.

However, Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl is confident the injury is not serious.

He said: "I think it is not that bad, I think it is only a cut on the knee. That is a positive message for me."

The game was level at 1-1 when Ward-Prowse went off but Spurs went on to win 3-2.

Ward-Prowse, 25, has made 30 appearances in all competitions for Southampton this season.
