Southampton take on Arsenal later today in a match which will intrigue both sets of fans and the neutral.

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta is currently feeling the pressure after the North London side lost to Burnley on Sunday for their fourth consecutive defeat at home.

Southampton, meanwhile, are flying high in the Premier League and are coming off two victories over Brighton & Hove Albion and Sheffield United going into Wednesday night’s game.

However, Saints haven’t won an away league game against Arsenal in Premier League history. In fact, you have to go back 33 years since the last time Southampton won at The Gunners’ place.

So, can Saints put that stat to bed? Well, Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has some positive team news going into the game.

Southampton have no fresh injury concerns. Both Danny Ings and Nathan Redmond appear to be fully fit once again after their respective layoffs, while even Mohammed Salisu continues to near the kind of fitness required to make it to the matchday squad.

Not only are Saints’ players fit, Hasenhuttl says his team are raring to go ahead of Wednesday.

“So far, surprisingly, everyone says they are fit and wants to play again,” Hasenhuttl said in his pre-match press conference on Monday.

“This is normal when a team is successful, but so far no injuries. A few tight muscles, but I cannot say today how they will feel tomorrow. We have a light session tomorrow, and then we will see on Wednesday.”
