Unai Emery makes KEY changes as Koscielney partner Monreal in defence vs Southampton

Arsenal travel away to face struggling Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday as they look to continue their assault on the Champions League places.

The Gunners are currently behind 4th-placed Chelsea on goal difference and two points off 3rd-placed Tottenham.

Unai Emery is likely to make some changes, after he watched his side scrape a 1-0 win against Huddersfield last weekend.

Arsenal Injuries


Rob Holding will miss the rest of the seasonafter suffering a cruciate ligament knee injury.

Danny Welbeck is ruled out with a broken anklefollowing his shocking injury against Sporting CP, but Aaron Ramsey and Mesut Ozil are both available after their recent injury problems.

Dinos Mavropanos faces further time out on the sidelines with a groin injury, but is expected to return to training at some point this month, while Laurent Koscielny is back in contention after his long-term Achilles issue.


Arsenal Suspensions


Arsenal have Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi suspended for this match.


Possible Arsenal Starting Line-Up


Emery is likely to partner Laurent Koscielny alongside Nacho Monreal in central defence due to the suspensions at the back.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Mesut Ozil could start behind striker Alexandre Lacazette, while the midfield partnership of Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira will also continue.
