Arsenal's need for points in the Premier League is becoming a desperate one, and Wednesday night's visit of in-form Southampton hardly looks like the ideal fixture.
Granit Xhaka was sent off against Burnley so the Swiss midfielder will no serve a three-match domestic suspension. Hector Bellerin picked up his 5th booking of the season so he too will be absent.
On the plus side, Gunners record signing Nicolas Pépé returns from a three-match suspension of his own and he might slot right back into the side.
🧮 Predicted Gunners XI
Leno; Maitland-Niles, Holding, Gabriel, Tierney; Elneny, Ceballos, Saka; Pépé, Nketiah, Aubameyang
