Arsenal manager wary of threat posed by Southampton’s improving attack

By | December 10, 2017

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger believes that there will goals when his side visit Southampton on Sunday.


The south-coast side have benefited from the return to fitness of striker Charlie Austin, who has struck three goals in his last four matches.

Wenger, whose side lost 4-0 at St Mary’s Stadium two years ago before winning there 2-0 in May, is all too wary of Saints’ offensive threat.

“They have Charlie Austin back now, and of course they have players like [Dusan] Tadic, [Nathan] Redmond, [Sofiane] Boufal who are all very strong offensively,” Wenger told Arsenal’s official website.

“They have a good technical level as a team and both side can create chances so there could be goals there.”
