The Southampton central midfielder has allayed fears over a serious injury after being substituted against Tottenham Hotspur.

Lemina was forced off in the English Premier League encounter in the 80th minute as the two teams drew 1-1 over a week ago.

The Gabon international took to social media after the game:

“It could’ve been better.. but we are on the right path.

“We’ll be fighting until the end to put back the club where it belongs.

“No worries with my ankle, everything is fine.

“I’m happy to be back.

“Thank you all for your support! We need you,” he said on Twitter.

Lemina was an unused substitute as Southampton defeated fellow Premier League side Watford FC 1-0 in an English FA Cup game on Saturday.

The former Juventus player suffered an ankle injury last October which ruled him out for a month.

He will be hoping to feature when Southampton take on Brighton and Hove Albion in a league game on Wednesday.

The match will be played at Southampton’s home ground, St Mary’s Stadium.
