Arsenal has today been welcomed by Southampton at the St. Mary’s Stadium and it is going to be an interesting encounter because a team fighting to leave the relegation zone will face the gunners who want to get back to the Premier League top four.
The gunners are without Shkodran Mustafi and Sokratis because they received a one match suspension after getting their fifth domestic yellow cards on Saturday last week. So here is the official Arsenal lineup to face Southampton this afternoon.
Leno, Bellerin, Lichtsteiner, Koscielny, Monreal, Xhaka, Guendouzi, Torreira, Mkhitaryan, Iwobi, Aubameyang
Cech, Maitland-Niles, Elneny, Ozil, Ramsey, Lacazette, Nketiah
The gunners come into this match well knowing that it has always been hard for them when facing Southampton away from home but Unai Emery will be hoping to see him get a win against the Saints who are currently in a bad situation as they have found themselves in the bottom half of the Premier League table.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery is happy with the progress which his team has so far made this season and here is what he had to say about being unbeaten in 22 games.
“There is no secret. The only thing is the next match. We’ve used the last matches to help us improve through our analysis.” Unai Emery told Arsenal’s official website.
“We can improve things individually and collectively, and also tactically and some things with the mentality.”
