I assume that Arsene Wenger has been thinking about making a change or two to the Arsenal team that has been starting and winning their matches recently, as this is the middle of a three matches in seven days run of fixtures. But a trip to St. Mary’s is a lot tougher on paper than our next game at home to Bournemouth.
So the Arsenal boss has decided to stick with the same line up that started against Man City five days ago, and I would not be surprised to see a few changes on Monday. Hopefully none of those changes will be forced on Wenger due to any more Gunners picking up an injury this evening.
And hopefully we will go into that game on top of the league table. Arsenal need all three points tonight to overtake the current leaders Leicester City who currently have two more than our 36. Southampton are not on a great run of form themselves but I do not think it will be easy for us tonight as I am sure that Ronald Koeman will have them fired up and will expect 100 percent effort in front of the home crowd.
Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Walcott, Ozil, Campbell
Subs: Ospina, Reine-Adelaide, Chambers, Gibbs, Gabriel, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Iwobi
Will we be top tonight Gooners? I think we will.
