Southampton manager Ralph Hasenhuttl has provided an update regarding the injury picked up by Mario Lemina prior last weekend.

Lemina had featured in 15 of Southampton’s last 16 games in the Premier League but was absent as the Saints recorded a shock 3-2 win over Arsenal on Sunday.

Southampton hosted high-flying Arsenal, who were on a 22 match unbeaten streak, at the St. Mary’s and stunned the visitors when Danny Ings opened the scoring with a well taken header.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan leveled matters for the Gunners almost immediately, before Ings headed the home team in front once again.

Mkhitaryan looked to have earned at least a point for Arsenal when he pulled the scores level at 2-2 before a late Charlie Austin header ensured Hasenhuttl picked up the three points in his first game in charge at the St. Mary’s.

Speaking about Lemina’s absence after the win against Arsenal, Hasenhuttl said, according to 101GreatGoals:

“Hopefully, not too serious. It’s about his stomach, it hurt him too much.”

“If you can’t sprint 100 per cent, it’s better to say ‘no it doesn’t work’ and we have to put in someone else.”
