Southampton coach Ralph Hasenhuttl said on Sunday that his keeper could also miss the Saints’ third-round FA Cup tie against League One outfit Shrewsbury Town on Saturday.
“After the last round of tests, we have one positive case now with Alex McCarthy, so he’s out for the game on Monday and maybe also the Shrewsbury game as he has to self-isolate for a period,” Hasenhuttl said.
Southampton are ninth in the Premier League with 26 points from 16 games.
