It’s been confirmed that Arsenal will face Southampton in the FA Cup 4th round after Ralph Hassenhutl’s side beat Shrewsbury Town 2-0 this evening.
The match had originally been scheduled for last weekend but was postponed after a Covid outbreak at the League One side. The Saints had to park a showdown with Leeds to squeeze in the fixture and won relatively comfortably despite rotating heavily.
Having played Newcastle twice in quick succession, the Gunners will now play Southampton twice in the space of four days.
Saturday’s FA Cup game, set to be shown on
the BBC BT Sport, kicks off at 12.15pm and we’re back on the South Coast for a Premier League clash on Tuesday night.
