SAINTS 2 ARSENAL 2

9:39pm

James Ward-Prowse booked for dissent (90 mins).

9:36pm

Arsenal: Olivier Giroud off, Lukas Podolski on (90 mins).

9:36pm

Saints: Steven Davis off, Guly do Prado on (89 mins).

9:33pm

CHANCE (87 mins): Luke Shaw gets down the left and sends in a cross that deflects off Bacary Sagna. The ball nearly loops over Wojciech Szczesny, but he manages to tip it over the bar. From the resulting corner, James Ward-Prowse picks out Jose Fonte, but his side-footed effort from 16 yards is brilliantly tipped away by the Arsenal keeper.

9:32pm

Arsenal: Santi Cazorla off, Kieran Gibbs on (86 mins).

9:27pm

Daily Echo:

Mathieu Flamini goes in with two feet on Morgan Schneiderlin and is shown a red card. Easy decision for Lee Mason. Arsenal down to ten men for the last ten minutes. (80 mins)

9:18pm

A frantic start to the second half saw Arsenal score twice in the space of four minutes to turn the game on its head. Santi Cazorla produced a simply stunning finish to put them ahead...

Daily Echo:

9:17pm

Saints: Sam Gallagher off to a standing ovation, James Ward-Prowse on (70 mins)

Arsenal: Serge Gnabry off, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain (70 mins)

9:10pm

Arsenal go close to regaining the lead. Mesut Ozil sprints forward from halfway, goes past Maya Yoshida and fires in a shot from the left side of the area. The ball deflects off Jose Fonte, who had slid in to block, and loops over the head of Artur Boruc. It seems to be in the air for an eternity, before hitting the bar and bouncing to safety (64 mins).

9:00pm

SAINTS 2 ARSENAL 2 (Adam Lallana 54)

Saints level the game within moments of the restart. Jay Rodriguez beats Bacary Sagna down the left, squares the ball, and there is an unmarked Adam Lallana to slam past Wojciech Szczesny.

8:58pm

Daily Echo:

SAINTS 1 ARSENAL 2 (Santi Cazorla 52)

Amazing turnaround. Santi Cazorla slices a beautiful shot into the bottom corner from 20 yards after Mesut Ozil's pass picked him out.

8:55pm

It's such a massive night for Sam Gallagher and he has done well so far, other than one bad miss. Here he is in action...

Daily Echo:

8:53pm

Daily Echo:

SAINTS 1 ARSENAL 1 (Olivier Giroud 48)

Arsenal level things up within a few minutes of the restart. Bacary Sagna beats Jay Rodriguez to an overhit cross and fires a a ball into the six-yard box, where Giroud manages to flick it in.

8:53pm

Arsene Wenger wasn't looking too happy in the first half but that might have just changed...

Daily Echo:

8:48pm

The second half is underway.

8:33pm

SAINTS 1 ARSENAL 0

8:32pm

CHANCE (44 mins): Incredibly, this is Arsenal's first effort. Per Mertesacker meets a corner, flicking the ball towards goal. It goes into the path of Laurent Koscielny six yards out, who prods the ball forward, but Artur Boruc makes an excellent reaction stop.

8:30pm

CHANCE (42 mins): A glorious move by Saints, as Sam Gallagher lays the ball back to Adam Lallana just inside the box. He flicks a back heel to Steven Davis, who does a 360-degree spin on the ball, before sending it back to Gallagher. Just as he pulls the trigger, though, Laurent Koscielny slides in to make an amazing block.

8:25pm

Wojciech Szczesny can't keep it out at the near post...

Daily Echo:

8:24pm

CHANCE (36 mins): It's a real shame for the youngster, but Sam Gallagher has missed a glorious opportunity to make it 2-0. Nacho Monreal makes a terrible mistake, kicking a clearance from near his own byline straight against Steven Davis. The ball spins across goal and into the path of Gallagher six yards out and right in line with the middle of the goal. He's a little off balance as he shoots, and he puts his effort wide.

8:23pm

Jose Fonte beats Nacho Monreal to head home the opening goal...

Daily Echo:

 

8:19pm

Olivier Giroud cautioned after a poor tackle on Morgan Schneiderlin (31 mins).

8:11pm

CHANCE (23 mins): Adam Lallana fires in a shot from 20 yards that deflects off Mathieu Flamini and goes just wide.

8:08pm

 

 

 

SAINTS 1 ARSENAL 0 (Jose Fonte 21)

A well-deserved lead for Saints. Luke Shaw sends over a cross from the left, and Jose Fonte, above, outjumps Nacho Monreal to head past Wojciech Szcsesny at the back post.

8:03pm

7:56pm

CHANCE (8 mins): Arsenal try to play their way out of their own area, but are caught by Saints, as Jay Rodriguez slides in to tackle Nacho Monreal. The ball falls to the feet of Sam Gallagher just inside the box, but his well-struck right-foot shot is beaten away Wojciech Szczesny.

7:54pm

CHANCE (7 mins): Saints have started well, and they created the game's first opening as Luke Shaw broke away down the left and delivered a cross to the near post. Per Mertesacker made a mess of his clearance, with the ball hitting Sam Gallagher six yards out and going wide.

7:45pm

Daily Echo: Mauricio Pochettino says he will not leave Southampton before the end of the season

Saints boss Mauricio Pochettino confirmed yesterday that the club are considering signing one new player before the transfer window closes on Friday night. He has also addressed the issue of the market in tonight's matchday programme. In his own notes, he said...

 

The transfer window closes later this week and we continue to monitor movements. Obviously, it is encouraging to have the support from Katharina (Liebherr, the owner), but we will only bring in players if we feel that it is right to do so.

Mauricio Pochettino

7:00pm

6:54pm

The big news for Saints tonight is that 18-year-old striker Sam Gallagher starts up front. The teenager scored his first senior goal when he netted in last Saturday's 2-0 FA Cup fourth round win against Yeovil, at St Mary's. This is a different kettle of fish for the youngster, though, but also a wonderful occasion for him. He plays in the absence of Rickie Lambert, who has not overcome a hamstring injury in time, while Dani Osvaldo is also absent through a club-imposed suspension. Calum Chambers starts at right-back, instead of Nathaniel Clyne, who is on the bench. Maya Yoshida partners Jose Fonte at the heart of defence, with Dejan Lovren out injured. Victor Wanyama is back on the bench, after recovering from a hairline leg fracture that he suffered in early December.

For Arsenal, Mikel Arteta comes in for the injured Jack Wilshere. The Gunners are pretty much at full strength for this one, though. There is also a place on the bench for ex-Saints winger Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Daily Echo: TRANSFER SCRUTINY: Arsene Wenger came under fire yesterday over the club's timing of the Cabaye bid

 

ARSENAL will need to be at their best to beat Saints tonight, according to Arsène Wenger.

The Gunners boss brings his league-leading team to St Mary’s tonight and is
expecting a tough night against the hosts.

“They are above expected and the quality of their displays has been very good and everybody who goes today to Southampton knows that they will get
a difficult game,” said Wenger.

“That’s why we want to focus on being at our best, because Southampton on our plan is a game where you want to take the points but you know we need to fight to get them.”

If you're heading to St Mary's tonight, be sure to wrap up warmm and wearing something waterproof, as there is a risk of rain and temperatures are expected to be around 6°C - although that could be ever lower at the ground.

5:07pm

Daily Echo: Rickie Lambert is loving life at Southampton

SAINTS have an injury concern over Rickie Lambert ahead of tonight’s visit of Premier League leaders Arsenal.

The striker has been suffering with a slight hamstring problem, and is a doubt for this evening’s match.

Mauricio Pochettino revealed yesterday that a decision would be made after assessing him in training.

With Dani Osvaldo suspended, Jay Rodriguez is the most likely candidate to lead the line if Lambert misses out.

5:04pm

Tonight's other Premier League fixtures:

7.45pm ko unless stated:

Some key head-to-head stats ahead of tonight's match:

Top Scorers: Jay Rodriguez (11) v Olivier Giroud (12)

Most Assists: Steven Davis (6) v Mesut Ozil (10)

Bad boys: Morgan Schneiderlin (5Y/0R) v Mikel Arteta (4Y/2R)

4:56pm

One of the key battles tonight could be between Jack Cork and Mesut Ozil.

Both Cork and Morgan Schneiderlin will have a lot to look out for tonight, but perhaps no one more than lethal playmaker Mesut Ozil, right.

Keep him quiet and Saints’ chances improve greatly.

Daily Echo: Mesut Ozil impressed on his Arsenal debut against Stoke

Last Season we could and should have Won. With Wanyama and Boruc on the Team Sheet - we give ouselves the best possible chance to WIN against Arsenal. It will be tough - but we can do this.

A League Of Their Own

The gunner stands by his Arsenal,
A winter chill is in the air.
Liverpool's reds stay in their beds,
Chewing Toffees with ne'er a care.
A Blue Moon is over Old Trafford,
The red dawn still so far away.
Down the Lane Cockerels are silent,
For the new year they want to stay.
Palace now have an old stoker,
Said Pulis up now if you can.
West Ham's claret is gone flat,
Sam's ideas not going to plan.
Down in Wales the Swans are swimming,
They look serene as they float by.
Alas the Bluebirds are flightless,
Now that Tan tries to rid of Mackay.
West Brom still look for a rudder,
Whilst Sunderland bring up the rear.
Magpies and Canaries still sing,
And Saints are showing no fear.
At the Bridge the blues are handy,
Bruce's Tigers and Stoke are mid-stream.
But Fulham and Villa's wish list,
To win the league is just a dream.
Your club may have bought a turkey,
A centre forward who can't score.
But here is the rub, it's your club,
And like Twist you'll go back for more.

Disappointing result at the end of the day,should have finished Arsenal off in the first half,just like the Sunderland game,Saints lack that killer in them to finish off games.

Again, thought Mayanaise did very well. A little gutted we can't get that little bit of luck in front if goal.... I see Puncheon scores again.... Let's bring him home!
Sam tried hard, should have scored but a great confidence boost for the young lad.

A strong risk of heavy showers tonight, but will they still water the pitch before each half?
did they?
No they didn't but the pitch was still like a damp billiard table, incredible work by the ground staff in the circumstances, the Cherrys were wallowing in a mud pit, they had the same weather as us. We would not have had such a good game if the surface hadn't been so good.
