Southampton vs. Arsenal team news

There is plenty to play for as Arsenal visit Southampton for the second time in the space of four days.

Southampton knocked out the FA Cup holders in their fourth-round fixture on Saturday with a 1-0 win, so Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal will be determined to get one over the South Coast club on Tuesday night.

Arsenal and Saints sit side-by-side in the Premier League table at 11th and 10th respectively, with Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men having a game in hand. Arsenal are on the hunt for three consecutive away wins for the first time since 2018.

Southampton Team News: Saints missing up to 9 players for Arsenal game

Arsenal Team News: Gunners captain Aubamayang out, two others injured for Saints clash

Southampton are missing up to NINE players for this Premier League clash.

Kyle Walker-Peters is the most notable, recent absentee after he injured his quad in training following Saints’ win against Arsenal.

Ryan Bertrand is suspended, while Jannik Vestergaard, Oriol Romeu, Mohammed Salisu, Will Smallbone, Moussa Djenepo, Michael Obafemi and Nathan Tella are all out injured.

Saints winger Nathan Redmond is expected to return to the substitute’s bench tonight.

Arsenal have some selection issues, too. Captain Pierre-Emerick Aubamayang is out for the second game in a row with a personal matter, while Dani Ceballos and Pablo Mari are out with calf injuries.

Left-back Kieran Tierney is expected to return despite struggling with a calf injury of his own.
