​Arsenal set to face 'strongest possible' Southampton in FA Cup tie

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl will not be rotating too much ahead of an FA Cup tie against Arsenal at the weekend.

The Saints played several young players against Shrewsbury Town this week.

But with their fourth round game being against a Premier League rival, Hasenhuttl will name a stronger team.

Asked about the game and his potential team sheet by reporters, Hasenhuttl said: "As strong as possible.

"We know that it is a tough game, but hopefully also for them.

"This is the goal we have, to make it as difficult as possible."
