Saturday's clash at the Emirates sees first take on third and a win for Southampton could see the men from St Mary's go to the summit of the Premier League.

England new boy Lallana is confident they can go to Arsenal and get a result after picking up positive results at Anfield and Old Trafford already this season.

"We've got a tough game at the weekend and I'm thoroughly looking forward to that," Lallana told the club's official website.

"We've got a busy December coming up, so I'm happy that I'm fully-fit. I'm just really looking forward to getting in amongst it this weekend at the Emirates.

"It's a massive game. It's top versus third so why can't we go there and get a result?

"We've done it at Old Trafford and at Anfield already this season, so the lads will be full of confidence and I'm really looking forward to it."

Southampton striker Lambert claims they will make the trip to North London full of confidence having enjoyed their best ever start to a Premier League campaign.

"We're going to go there confident," noted Lambert. "We know it's going to be one of our hardest tests to-date because Arsenal are playing well at the minute.

"It's going to be tough, but we're confident that we can go there and get something."

e have the personnel. The trick is keeping them fit. Carrick and Blind have missed large chunks of the season, while the defence has been one muddled mess of intermittent stooges, all coming and going at various intervals thus far. We may be just short of title winning quality, but we're half way through. An injury crisis to either of the top two could change things. Optimistic, yes, but not unrealistic.

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
