Arsenal will be eager to get a measure of quick revenge on Southampton when the two sides face off for a second time in four days at St. Mary’s tonight (Tuesday), with both sides in desperate need of a win.
Southampton have continued their success story under the tutelage of Ralph Hasenhuttl, who just continues to take his side from strength to strength.
The Saints are harbouring dreams of a top-half finish, although they have managed to win just one of their last six Premier League outings.
Having said that, the hosts will be buoyed by their narrow win over the Gunners just a few days ago in the FA Cup.
Mikel Arteta and his menl, on the other hand, have endured a difficult 2020/21 campaign so far and are a place and 2 points below Southampton after the first half of the Premier League season.
Arsenal, though, are unbeaten in their last five top-flight outings, which has helped them climb up the table.
But, their most recent fixture was the shock defeat to their opponents on Tuesday last weekend.
Southampton XI (4-4-2): McCarthy, Valery, Bednarek, Stephens, Vokins, Armstrong, Diallo, Ward-Prowse, Walcott, Adams, Ings
Arsenal XI (4-2-3-1): Leno, Bellerín, Holding, Luiz, Cédric, Thomas, Xhaka, Pépé, S. Rowe, Saka, Lacazette
Kick off is at 21:15 (GMT +1).
