Southampton boss Ruben Selles admits Paul Onuachu could start today against West Ham.
The centre-forward has managed just 30 minutes in the last four games.
Selles explained: “Paul as you can see is a very special and very specific player. He did well when I took the team against Chelsea.
“For the Leeds game, the whole team was not performing well. I think Paul has his chances to play, like any other player.
“He is training well, he is a good boy and of course, if Che (Adams) is not fit enough, he has the chance to play, from the beginning or coming into the pitch during the game."
Selles added: "I think he is a player who changes the dynamic of the game. You saw against Manchester United, immediately when we put him in and then Erik (ten Hag) changed his defence and put Harry Maguire on because they knew we had a more direct approach.
"We have to introduce him in a way that can be a benefit for us, not being more chaotic if he steps into the pitch. It is the team that needs to adapt a little bit more to what Paul Onuachu needs when we are playing."
