Predicted Arsenal Line Up To Face Southampton – Sanchez And Elneny To Start

Just back on boxing day, Southampton trounced the Gunners 4-0 at St Mary’s. That’s now two defeats in the last two matches against Southampton. Arsenal is currently third in the Premier League with 44 points. They are tied for points with Manchester City, while visitors Southampton is eighth in the league with 33 points. Arsenal have struggled off late in the Premier League with just 2 points from their last three matches, they are under slight pressure going into this match. Hence a win is very important on Tuesday.

Goalkeeper: Petr Cech

The man with the highest number of clean sheets in the League will be expected to keep his place in goal. He will be disappointed at conceding a goal against his former employees last weekend but other than that he has been in superb form this season. Maybe the signing of the season.

Defense: Héctor Bellerín, Laurent Koscielny, Gabriel and Nacho Monreal

Hector Bellerin

With Per Mertesacker suspended for this match after receiving a red card against Chelsea last time around, it will be Gabriel partnering Koscielny at the back. Hector Bellerin and Nacho Monreal have firmly established themselves in the team ahead of Mathieu Debuchy and Kieran Gibbs so they’ll continue at the back against Southampton. Gabriel struggled a bit against Burnley in the FA Cup but with more game time, he will be expected to get better from here on.
