It looks like Granit Xhaka will miss our game at Saint Mary’s this week as we prepare to face Southampton in the Premier League.
After scoring our opening goal, Xhaka limped of with 15 minutes to go in our 2-0 win over Jose Mourinho’s Manchester United and was replaced by Francis Coquelin. It looks like Le Coq will slot back into the defensive midfield spot for the game, where a win could see us leapfrog United onto 66 points and move into 5th place in what seems to be a futile bid for top four this season.
Southampton will be missing their captain Virgil van Dijk, but there could be a return for Charlie Austin, and Matt Targett in the game.
After the Saints clash, this leaves us with just 4 games to play until the end of the season, with our annual battering at Stoke this weekend, then Sunderland at home next week and Everton at home on the final game of the season.
We then turn our attention to the Cup Final, with the all important clash at Wembley with Chelsea on the 27th of May, with the frankly ridiculous KO time of 17:30pm in a game which is our only chance of winning something this season.
Meanwhile Spurs lost 1-0 at West Ham last weekend, all but ending any slim hopes they may have had of winning their first league title since 1961, a gap of 56 years and counting.
