Here we bring to you our predicted line up for this weekend’s game against Southampton.
Arsenal host Southampton at the Emirates in the fourth week of this year’s Premier League campaign.
Arsenal head into their 4th fixture of the season having won,lost and drawn once each against Watford, Liverpool and Leicester City respectively.
The Gunners go into this game with new signings Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez at their disposal. The team, vibrant, and rich in every department, has been referred to by Arsene Wenger as possibly the most ‘mature’ team he has had in a long time. While Mustafi could find a place in the starting 11 for this one, Lucas Perez is likely to be included in the squad, but unlikely to play ahead of Olivier Giroud, who has just returned to full fitness.
Arsenal will be without midfielder Aaron Ramsey who is still recovering from a hamstring strain he sustained in the opening game against Liverpool. Alex Iwobi on the other hand has returned to the squad. Alexis Sanchez and David Ospina are reportedly doubtful for this one, but there is a chance that the South American duo find a place on the Arsenal bench, with the former likely to start the game.
Arsenal’s predicted Line up:
Bellerin Mustafi Koscielny Monreal
Walcott Ozil Sanchez
Subs from: Chamberlain, Ospina, Martinez, Iwobi, Perez, Akpom, Holding, Coquelin, Elneny,Reine-Adelaide, Gibbs, Debuchy, Sanogo
Injured: Danny Welbeck (knee) Per Mertesacker (knee) Aaron Ramsey ( Hamstring)
Carl Jenkinson ( knee) Gabriel ( Ankle)
Doubtful: Alexis Sanchez, David Ospina ( both match fitness)
Arsenal look strong in every position inspite having 3 defenders a midfielder and a striker out injured. If the Gunners can make it through September, with Gabriel and Ramsey back in the squad, Wenger could enjoy being Uncle Scrooch momentarily ( at the least)
