Southampton failed to secure a positive result against Arsenal yesterday as they were beaten 2-0 at the Emirates, with two first-half goes proving too much for Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side.
The Saints will have their sights set on climbing up the Premier League table as they currently find themselves in a worrying position, with relegation being a slight possibility.
And, it appears as if the Saints have suffered a big setback on the injury front, as according to fitness expert Ben Dinnery’s personal Twitter account, Michael Obafemi has suffered a recurrence of his hamstring injury.
Michael Obafemi was an unused substitute in today’s game at the Emirates Stadium.
Indeed, the attacker looks to have suffered a recurrence of the hamstring injury which kept him out since December.
This comes as a big blow for the Saints as they already have Danny Ings out on the sidelines, so they’ll now have to rely on Charlie Austin and Shane Long, who have struggled to ensure consistency all season.
The Saints will be hoping that Obafemi isn’t out for too long as they’re light on options at the pinnacle of the attack, with injuries constantly taking their toll.
So, it’s anxious times for Southampton supporters with their Premier League future hanging in the balance and another forward set for time out on the sidelines.
