It’s no surprise to see Armando Broja back in the side, having been ineligible to play against his parent club last week, but Ralph Hasenhüttl has made several bold calls, dropping Ché Adams, Valentino Livramento and Mohammed Salisu. The out-of-form Alexandre Lacazette misses out completely for Arsenal, which means Eddie Nketiah has a chance to prove his worth up front. Emile Smith Rowe in on the bench.
At the start of last month, the Saints were in the midst of a barnstorming run of eight victories and one defeat in 13 games, but since securing Premier League safety their form has fallen off a cliff. In Broja and Adams, Southampton have two of the best strikers outside the top six, but can Hasenhüttl’s men snap out of their late-season stupor?
Mikel Arteta was named the Premier League’s manager of the month in March, and the curse of the award has struck again. Arsenal looked odds-on for a return to the Champions League, but April has brought them back to Earth with a bump. And it’s the same old problems for the Gunners, who have some of the most gifted young playmakers around, but are sorely lacking in other areas.
