John Hartson: 'Southampton can exploit inexperienced Arsenal defence'

Ex-Arsenal striker John Hartson believes that Southampton can exploit the Gunners' "inexperienced" defence ahead of their League Cup tie tonight.

Former Arsenal striker John Hartson has claimed that the Gunners could struggle against Southampton in their League Cup clash this evening because of their "inexperienced" defence.

Arsene Wenger has made 10 changes ahead of the game at the Emirates, with Hector Bellerin, Calum Chambers, Isaac Hayden and Francis Coquelin playing at the back.

Hartson told BBC Sport: "Teams like Southampton come here in the league and think they are up against it but maybe not tonight.

"Southampton have pre-guessed that Arsenal will have an inexperienced back four and they will see tonight as a big opportunity for them to go through."
