Confirmed Line-ups: Arsenal vs Southampton – No Aubameyang, Young Star Starts

Arsenal simply have to get back to winning ways when we welcome Southampton to the Emirates this afternoon.

Mikel Arteta is without captain Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang after the striker missed training on Friday so Alexandre Lacazette keeps his place up front today.

Aaron Ramsdale keeps goal once again for Arsenal while the back four is made-up of Takehiro Tomiyasu, Ben White, Gabriel and Keiran Tierney. Therefore, Nuno Tavares has to make-do with a place on the bench.

Granit Xhaka marshals the midfield once again while Thomas Partey keeps his place in the middle of the park despite his poor recent form. Albert Sambi Lokonga has to settle for a place among the substitutes.

Bukayo Saka keeps his place in the Arsenal attack while Martin Odegaard is also rewarded with another start after scoring twice in his last two outings.

Emile Smith Rowe is only deemed fit enough for a substitutes role this afternoon so Gabriel Martinelli keeps his place on the left side of attack and the Brazilian will be hoping to impress.

Nicolas Pepe and Eddie Nketiah are attacking options from the bench for Arsenal along with Smith Rowe.
