Southampton possible starting lineup:
McCarthy; Valery, Bednarek, Stephens, Vokins; Walcott, Diallo, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong; Ings, Adams

ARSENAL

Arsenal skipper Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang had to attend to a personal matter over the weekend, and it remains to be seen whether the striker will line up on Tuesday.

Dani Ceballos is touch-and-go with a calf problem while Pablo Mari is definitely out, but Arteta will no doubt revert to his strongest XI in the hope that lightning does not strike twice at St Mary’s.

Thomas Partey, Kieran Tierney, Emile Smith Rowe, Bukayo Saka and Alexandre Lacazette should all return to the fold, while Gabriel Martinelli could be handed another start on the left if Aubameyang misses out.

Arsenal possible starting lineup:
Leno; Bellerin, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli; Lacazette
 
SOUTHAMPTON VS ARSENAL PREDICTION

With several of Arsenal in-form youngsters set to be recalled to Arteta’s lineup on Tuesday, Saints fans cannot afford to read too much into their FA Cup triumph. These two sides are notoriously strong defensively and were not able to be separated at the Emirates earlier in the season, so we expect the Gunners to restore a little bit of parity with a hard-fought draw on Tuesday evening.
