Arsenal will be looking to book their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup when we take on Southampton at St Mary’s this evening.

Arsene Wenger has made wholesale changes to his starting eleven with David Ospina replacing Petr Cech between the sticks while Hector Bellerin, Rob Holding and Kieran Gibbs come in to the defence alongside Shkodran Mustafi.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain starts in midfield along with youngster Ainsley Maitland-Niles with Aaron Ramsey and Francis Coquelin rested while Theo Walcott returns in attack.

Lucas Perez gets a rare chance to impress as he’s joined in the attack by youngster Jeff Reine-Adelaide and Danny Welbeck – who makes his first start of the season. Alexis Sanchez is named among the substitutes.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Southampton

Lewis, Martina, Gardos, Stephens, McQueen, Reed, Clasie, Hojbjerg, Sims, Isgrove, Long

Subs: Taylor, Yoshida, Bertrand, Davis, Romeu, Redmond, Tadic.

Arsenal
