Arsenal will look to put their Europa League exploits behind them when we take on Southampton at the Emirates this afternoon.

Arsene Wenger clearly has one eye on our Europa League quarter-final clash with CSKA Moscow as he’s rested a number of first team players with the likes of Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal, Aaron Ramsey, Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil all left out.

Calum Chambers starts alongside Shkodran Mustafi in defence while Sead Kolasinac comes-in at left-back. Mohamed Elneny joins Granit Xhaka in midfield with Alex Iwobi given a chance to impress.

However, the big news is that teenager Reiss Nelson is handed his Premier League debut while Danny Welbeck supports Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang in attack.

Here are the confirmed line-ups:

Arsenal

Cech, Bellerin, Chambers, Mustafi, Kolasinac, Elneny, Xhaka, Iwobi, Nelson, Welbeck, Aubameyang

Subs: Macey, Holding, Monreal, Wilshere, Ozil, Lacazette, Nketiah

Southampton

McCarthy, Cedric, Stephens, Hoedt, Yoshida, Bertrand, Romeu, Tadic, Hojbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Long

Subs: Forster, Pied, Redmond, Sims, Boufal, Austin, Gabbiadini
