Arsenal will look to close in on the Premier League’s top four when we take on Southampton at St Marys this evening.
Arsene Wenger has made one change from the side that beat Manchester United at the weekend with Shkodran Mustafi coming in for Laurent Koscielny after he failed a late fitness test.
It means Rob Holding keeps his place at the back along with Nacho Monreal while Kieran Gibbs and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain occupy the wing-back positions once again.
Granit Xhaka is passed fit to start in the middle of the park despite picking up a calf problem at the weekend while Aaron Ramsey also keeps his place.
Danny Welbeck leads the line up front after scoring against his former club on Sunday with Olivier Giroud among the subs.
Here are the line-ups:
Forster, Cedric, Stephens, Yoshida, Bertrand, Romeu, Davis, Ward-Prowse, Tadic, Redmond, Gabbiadini
Subs: Hassen, Caceres, Long, Boufal, Pied, Hojbjerg, Rodriguez
Cech; Holding, Mustafi, Monreal; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Ramsey, Xhaka, Gibbs; Özil, Alexis, Welbeck.
Subs: Ospina, Bellerin, Gabriel, Coquelin, Iwobi, Walcott, Giroud
