There will be a major talking point in the Saints team with Kelvin Davis dropped...again. This time for Artur Boruc.

So, just to recap, it was Kelvin Davis number one, Paulo Gazzaniga number two, then Paulo Gazzaniga number one, Kelvin Davis number two, then Artur Boruc number one, Kelvin Davis number two, then Paulo Gazzaniga number one, Kelvin Davis number two, then Kelvin Davis number one, Artur Boruc number two and now Artur Boruc number one, Kelvin Davis number two...in 19 league games.

All make sense!?

Subs: Martinez, Mertesacker, Coquelin, Ramsey, Rosicky, Gervinho, Giroud.

4:37pm

Teams are out.

For Saints there is a recall in goal for Artur Boruc.

Jack Cork is moved to right back with Maya Yoshida back in the centre of defence alongside Jose Fonte with Jos Hooiveld dropped.

Steven Davis also comes into the team in midfield, while Gaston Ramirez is also recalled in place of Jay Rodriguez.

4:07pm

It's also a big day for Terry Paine.

The Saints legend and Daily Echo columnist has flown in from South Africa to be officially givne the title of the club's honorary president.

Paine has said that it's bigger than winning the World Cup in 1966.

4:04pm

For the Gunners centre-back Per Mertesacker could be available after illness for the New Year's Day trip to Southampton.

Czech midfielder Tomas Rosicky was left on the bench for Saturday's 7-3 win over Newcastle, so may also come back into contention to feature at St Mary's.


Defender Andre Santos (stomach muscle) and midfielder Abou Diaby (thigh) are expected to start training again this week.

4:04pm

Full team news will be coming shortly but Saints will again be without captain Adam Lallana.

Right-back Nathaniel Clyne is a doubt with a knee complaint that forced him to miss Saturday's 3-3 draw at Stoke.

4:00pm

Southampton manager Nigel Adkins has warned clubs looking to lure away Luke Shaw or any of his other players this month.


Saints have improved greatly of late, having lost just two of their previous nine Barclays Premier League fixtures heading into today's match with Arsenal.


The north Londoners have taken Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Theo Walcott from the south coast club in recent years and have been linked with a move for 17-year-old academy graduate Shaw.


Manchester City and Chelsea have also reportedly shown interest in the left-back, although Adkins does not expect him to be going anywhere.


"I've not read any of the newspapers," the Saints boss said.


"I think Luke gets linked every week with Arsenal, doesn't he?


"Luke is under contract, he is playing football for us in the Premier League, which is important.


"We are not looking to let him go anywhere if anyone wants to come in for any of our players, by all means speak to the chairman. He does the deals and all the best with that."


Adkins gave a similar response when asked about Rickie Lambert's future following speculation of a January move away from St Mary's.


The Saints boss was, though, less forthcoming when asked of players arriving at St Mary's, following links to Cagliari's Davide Astori and Birmingham goalkeeper Jack Butland.


Adkins was, understandably, more concerned about this evening's encounter with Arsenal, which will see Walcott and Oxlade-Chamberlain return to the club.


The latter is a man Adkins knows particularly well after the winger's key role in Southampton's promotion from npower League One in 2011.


"I think he will get a fantastic reception," the Saints boss said.


"He is one of the players that came through out system.


"We are excited watching him play. We'd love him to still be at Southampton, but he is an Arsenal player now and an England international.


"I went to watch him against Reading the other night and he was exhilarating, with his acceleration to go away, a desire to get on the football. He is a joy to watch.


"I think everybody at Southampton is proud of what he is doing now.


"Everybody at the football club has had a role and a responsibility to play in Alex's development, but it is down to him as well. He is an exciting young talent."

3:47pm

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain hopes old club Southampton will have enough about them to stay in the Premier League, but will be going all out to maintain the Gunners' momentum with a fifth straight win.

Oxlade-Chamberlain came through the Southampton academy before catching the eye of several top-flight clubs and eventually following Theo Walcott from St Mary's to Emirates Stadium in a big-money move last summer.

The 19-year-old has developed quickly under the guidance of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger, going on to win full England honours and a place in the squad for Euro 2012.

After helping Nigel Adkins' squad get up out of League One and set on their way towards a triumphant top-flight return, Oxlade-Chamberlain hopes the Saints stay back up among England's elite will not prove shortlived.

"I hope they do stay up. They have got goals in them, but it is just defensively," said Oxlade-Chamberlain, who was on target as Walcott netted a hat-trick in the 7-3 win over Newcastle on Saturday.

"That, though, is hard for anyone in the Premier League because there is so much attacking ability."

3:46pm

Meanwhile, fellow former Saint Theo Walcott has hinted he could be close to signing a new deal with the Gunners.

Walcott, whose contract ends in the summer, said in The Sun: "I'm sure that something will be sorted very soon.

"I've always said I wanted to stay and I enjoy playing for this team. Now we will just see what happens.

"I will continue to play my football and let the people who look after me and the club talk to each other and go from there."

3:44pm

Welcome to the Daily Echo's coverage of Saints v Arsenal at St Mary's.

The 5.30pm kick-off, which is being televised live on Sky Sports, sees Saints return home after back-to-back away draws with Fulham and Stoke over the Christmas period.

Saints lost their last home game against Sunderland but are hopeful of getting back to winning ways against the Gunners.

They will certainly be hoping to do far better than earlier in the season when Saints were beaten 6-1 by Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium.

Theo Walcott and Alex Chamberlain are expected to feature against their former club.

I wish he would win a game for us, just once, is it too much to ask.

Cant blame guly for that, Borac would never have got'n there anyway, I think he would have just watched it go in. Shame because we were doing a great job all round up to then, ( apart from the keeping). I think that free kick was the only shot they had. Keeper makes me very nervous, I can only imagine how the team feels. Come on lads lets take care of buisness this half.

Stroppy G, don't worry.

I was reading a forum a few days ago where it's been suggested that a consortium of Southampton fans club together and buy Pompey's trophies from the administrator.

They'll then be melted down to make a "Best Club on the South Coast" trophy for the Southampton cabinet and a piece of jewellry to present to the Liebherr family.

Ther may be five trophies between us now, but not for much longer..

That'll do considering all the other teams around us didn't win either.

That defence held it together well for the whole match which was great to see. also a good turn around from the last match against Arsenal.
Shame about the own goal by Do Prado - but what do you do? try to get a boot on it or watch it sail into the net?
Well ok he did both.... but I can't fault him for trying to stop it.

So then.... out of the relegation zone with a game in hand. Villa next in the League.

that'll do boys, that'll do.

nah - he nudged the defender forward to give himself the space, so the linesman got the right call. It wasn't for offside.

Pity, I wonder how many teams in the PL would have got away with that?

Anyway rant over, thought we were the better side and looked pretty solid if not spectacular. Bring on villa away!

Guly did play well. Tracked back and really unsettled their right back. The OG was a typical forward sticking out a leg trying to defend, but we played as a unit today, kept the shape and concentration. If anyone singles out Guly today they are a WUM.

Quite enjoyed that felt as though we always had a chance to win it. Thought we looked disciplined at the back, competitive in midfield, but a bit lacking up front.
A win against Chelsea would be nice, but avoiding further injuries for the Villa game is essential. Nice for Adam and Clyne to get a run out next week. What about Gazza in goal?
Is anyone really expecting us to beat Chelsea? What about a relay?
Anyway on the bright side we are out of the bottom 3 with a game in hand. A win at Villa would be a nice early birthday present!

Progress eh, when we are disappointed with a draw against the 4rse.

A little bit more belief at Stoke and today and we would be holding 6 points not 2, if we beat the Villa we are probably going to stay up IF we do not have a panic attack like the last few games last season.

On a positive note, we were unlucky tonight! We should have wo but a point is better than nothing, although the results and points dropped over the Xmas period may come back to haunt us!
We desperately need a quality keeper, Boruc is in my eyes useless, Kelvin is past his sell-by date and the jury's out as far as the Argie is concerned. Have to be honest I've never liked Argies since my "busmans holiday" back in 82!
We also need a CB but other than that it's anyones guess

NA was brave to change the team at stoke and again today, we could have won both games. we can win the next game Vs villa and lets hope for at least a point when eveton come to sms.we then have some tough games so any pts v manure or mancity will be a bonus with a vital game at wigan which we must not lose. transfer markets open so we need to do some good business and in some more quality.

Shame for Guly, he put in a decent shift, Shaw looked good because he always had Guly backing him up. Cork looked a natural full back, how often will Ox and Theo have a tough game like that, they barely had a sniff and it wasn't for lack of trying. Wenger says that his team didn't play very well, there is an obvious reason for that, they weren't allowed to. How bad must Newcastle be?

Gaston is definately an asset. Morgan timed his 5th yellow perfectly. Hopefully he and AL will be available for the 3 points available at Villa.

Luke brilliant, JWP did his bit too.

Great point today....out of the dreaded zone too!

Reading the our local pundits posts and tweets before the game was a disgrace....no faith or respect for the manager or players. It would be great to get our local media 100% behind Nigel and the team.

Tactical tribute to Nigel.. 10games now and only two losses.

We adapted for Stoke's aerial bombardment.. jos and Jose got up well.. then changed around and put Corky on Walcott and had faith in Luke to handle Oxo. Guly is working his socks off Davis and Spider today worked brilliantly.

Luke and Guly and Gaston seemed to be looking for moves on the left.. Punch I think looks for the gap for himself probably a little too much.

Anyway drama as as I missed the last half hour.. gutted (first part of game missed in 3 years. had heart med related flutters and rang a & e for advice.. bugga ambos took me away to hosp. arrrrgh... checked all good and home in 2 hrs. So relieved we got a point and gutted we didn't win.

Well done Nigel and Saints

ps saw poor nervous wreck Nicola Cortese ... hang on in there Nicola we all feel that but unlike some of the silly outspoken ppl paid to report and comment we do see and believe in the dream.

Puncheon got the credit for the foul so you may have to retract that one.

Little wonder you are suffering from heart probs, it is a natural problem associated with being a Saints fan, I didn't feel quite so wound up today as much as I did Saturday, I was wrecked Sunday afterwards. Seriously take care of yourself, we need everyone we can get.

Great result , didn't watch game but listened in on radio , thought guly did well on Saturday at Stoke , NA got it right tactically, and why do people moan about taking off lambert , playing up front on your own his hard work and 4 games in 9 days is tough , need to keep every fresh as possible for last 18 games and jrod deserved another chance also played well at Stoke and scored

guly gave his best but he is not a Prem player, only an idiot would think otherwise... he did well tho. Punch, Cork and Gaston were outstanding and was NA. At last he has worked out that a knackered Punch on the pitch is better than anyone else when you need to keep hold of the ball.

Well, as one of the 'idiots' who thinks that Guly - while not one of our best players - IS good enough to play a role for Saints in the Prem (as was proved by his performance today), I'd just like to say that anyone who states that a person whose opinion differs from their own is an idiot must be an arrogant tw4t!

Nice to see the majority of the fans gave a lot of credit to Guly for his excellent performance today. There is no way he could be blamed for the own goal,,,,,it would have been a goal anyway. Actually Punch was the one who gave the ball away that led to the goal . This was a team performance and with both Lallana and Clyne injured it showed the depth of our squad and the QUALITY of Nigel who continues to peform miracles having already got 2 consecutive promotions.. This is the best squad we have had in years ....thanks Nigel for giving Saints fans so much enjoyment. A Happy New Year to All

How far we've come? Well two good games actually, we should and will learn more from the Sunderland defeat and move on. I would have expected more than 3 points from the last 4 games and I think NA will agree on that.
Otherwise he would be an idiot with all that information at his fingertips.
I do also believe that if Guly is given the number of starts that he had in the Championship, then Saints will benefit and really prosper in this League.

I'm a Footscray Bulldogs fan - oh, alright then, a Western Bulldogs fan. Bl00dy rebranding and franchise moving :(

I guess we should both be St Kilda Saints fans, although I was told I should NEVER bother supporting the Saints coz they couldn't win a toss up.
