Table topping Arsenal have a squad that is pretty fit right now, and no new fresh injury concerns. They’ll take on a Saints side that is very up and down this season. After three straight losses prior to this week, Southampton went undefeated in their two league matches.
First, they secured a 1-1 draw against a resurgent West ham, before they picked up all three points in a 1-0 victory against Bournemouth.

Like we said in the open, there is no new injury news for Arsenal, which will be a delight to both fans and club staff alike. Oleksandr Zinchenko remains unavailable after failing to train this week because of his calf injury. Mohamed Elneny is a long-term injury absentee.
He joins Emile Smith Rowe as players who we don’t expect to be back this side of the World Cup.
