SBN Southampton WebWorld: Here's a Matt Le Tissier highlight video

Back to normal business on a somewhat abnormal match day, as Arsenal get in their sprinter van and careen down the M3, stopping only at Costa for a quick cup of tea, for this evening's match at Southampton. As you can see by the seismograph above, Arsenal are in pretty solid form at the moment, and should field a fairly full-strength lineup for tonight's match.

Southampton are missing a few key players, notably Victor Wanyama and Pablo Osvaldo, but that doesn't mean they'll be pushovers; Arsenal will need to be much more focused than they were for stretches on Friday if they want all three points. And they do.
