Arsenal will this weekend face Southampton at the Emirates Stadium and Unai Emery will be hoping to see his team collect all the three points so that they could go back to the Premier League top four since Manchester United could lose to Liverpool.
Arsenal will be hoping to avenge their 3-2 defeat at Saint Mary’s Stadium in December which ended their 22 game unbeaten run but the gunners will this time have the advantage of playing them at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal boss Unai Emery has this season seen injuries mess up his tactics because he sometimes loses an important player and ends up changing his formation.
Arsenal boss Unai Emery has received good news today as the medical team of the gunners has confirmed that the injury Laurent Koscielny sustained in their match against Bate Borisov was minor and that he will be asessed ahead of their upcoming game vs the Saints.
This will be a huge boost for Unai Emery because the gunners will now have three fit centre backs, namely; Sokratis, Mustafi and Koscielny available for selection on Sunday. The Arsenal captain had an incredible performance when paired with Sokratis Papastathopoulos so these two could be used by Unai Emery at the weekend.
Unai Emery has continually lamented that he believes that injuries have ruined some of their matches like for example the FA Cup game vs Manchester United, the gunners saw both Laurent Koscielny and Sokratis Papastathopoulos get injured.
