Hello my SunSport family, hope everyone is well and is staying safe.
Does anybody else feel as if football is non-stop this season or is it just me?
Regardless I’m not complaining, we were deprived of it for four months last year so long may it continue!
Today we return to FA Cup action down on the South coast as the Saints welcome current holders Arsenal to the St.Mary’s Stadium.
Ironically, this is the first of a double header between these two because they meet again on Tuesday (26/01) but in a Premier League fixture instead and based on current form, the Gunners possibly edge it as favourites to progress.
After a phenomenal start to the season, Southampton seem to have hit a few stumbling blocks because they have only managed to secure one win their last five league outings.
However, that victory came against the champions Liverpool and Hasenhuttl’s men did see off Shrewsbury in their recent cup tie so that potentially may have gained them some momentum.
As for Mikel Arteta’s side, they have won their last five out of six matches which includes putting Newcastle to the sword on two separate occasions without conceding a single goal so there’s no doubt that they’ll be up for this contest.
This is shaping up to be a good one folks, so stay tuned and you’ll receive all the live updates right to your device.
