Southampton star to miss Arsenal clash but defender could return
15:41 31 December 2012
Southampton will again be without captain Adam Lallana when Arsenal visit St Mary’s tomorrow.
The severity of the 24-year-old’s knee injury is being kept under wraps, although manager Nigel Adkins has admitted he will not be able to face the Gunners.
Right-back Nathaniel Clyne is a doubt with a knee complaint that forced him to miss Saturday’s 3-3 draw at Stoke.
Provisional squad: K Davis, Gazzaniga, Boruc, Richardson, Butterfield, Stephens, Clyne, Fox, Shaw, Yoshida, Hooiveld, Fonte, Reeves, Ward-Prowse, Do Prado, Cork, Chaplow, De Ridder, Ramirez, Schneiderlin, S Davis, Puncheon, Lee, Lambert, Rodriguez, Mayuka.
