Lambert a doubt for Saints

Daily Echo: Rickie Lambert Rickie Lambert

Rickie Lambert is Saints’ main doubt ahead of tomorrow’s visit of Arsenal.

Although it isn’t a major issue, the striker has a hamstring problem that will be assessed ahead of the game.

More positive news is that Artur Boruc has overcome a slight back problem that he picked up at Sunderland, while Victor Wanyama is back in contention after recovering from a hairline fracture in his leg.

“Artur is fine,” said Mauricio Pochettino. “Victor has got possibilities to go into the squad and the other doubt we’ve got is Rickie Lambert – a problem in the hamstring and we will assess in training whether he can participate in the game or not.”

I don't think he'll play. Unless he starts and comes off later in the match. But this is a major chance for a couple of other players to step up to the plate and show what they can do against top class oppostion. The injuries are a shame but this is presenting opportunities for some that wont come often. Get out there and show what can be done !!

I was starting to think we woiuld be lucky to get a point tomorrow.. but then again we play some amazing stuff and just need to add better finishing .. I'm now thinking we will win.. maybe 1-0 .. dont care .. cometh the hour cometh the man ..

I PREDICT A RIOT
