Arsenal host Southampton at the Emirates stadium this afternoon. The Gunners will be looking to get their title challenge back on track, with their last result a potentially damaging 1-0 away defeat to current champions, Man Utd, before the international break.


Arsene Wenger’s side are the talk of the town so far this season; after the signing of German maestro Mesut Ozil, and their terrific form in the first quarter of the season. They face a high-flying Southampton side, who lie only 3 points behind them in the table.

The Gunners welcome back Theo Walcott into the squad, with the England winger having missed out on the last seven Premier League games. Defensive midfielder, Flamini is suspended; meaning Wilshere takes his place alongside Aaron Ramsey and Mikel Arteta in the heart of midfield.

Arsenal Line-up:

Szczesny, Sagna, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gibbs, Arteta, Ramsey, Wilshere, Ozil, Cazorla, Giroud

Subs: Fabianski (GK), Vermaelen, Monreal, Rosicky, Walcott, Gnabry, Bendtner

Southampton Line-up:

Boruc, Clyne, Fonte, Hooiveld, Shaw, Wanyama, Schneiderlin, Ward-Prowse, Lallana (c), Rodriguez, Lambert.

Subs: Gazzaniga (GK), Yoshida, S. Davis, Osvaldo, Chambers, Reed, Gallagher.
