SOUTHAMPTON, United Kingdom: Southampton will host Arsenal in the fourth round of the English FA Cup following a 2-0 win over Shrewsbury.

And N’Lundulu blasted his first goal in the senior squad in the senior squad for The Saints, followed by James Ward-Prowse’s goal.

The Southampton-Arsenal meeting at St Mary’s on Saturday was a repeat of the 2003 FA Cup final where the Gunners won 1-0.

Shrewsbury’s third division club, which has been playing in its first competitive match since December following the COVID-19 case, appeared without operator Steve Cotterill in the intensive care unit due to the virus.

Cotterill was taken to hospital last week after the virus hit the club, causing the third round match earlier this month to be postponed.

Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl made seven changes to the squad that lost 2-0 at the hands of English Premier League rivals Leicester.

Only Jan Bednarek, Jack Stephens, Ibrahima Diallo and James Ward-Prowse were retained in the Saints’ starting line-up.
