Ronald Koeman makes three changes from their festive fixture draw with Chelsea at St Mary’s with Florin Gardos and Ryan Betrand returning to the starting XI and James Ward-Prowse replacing the suspended Morgan Schneiderlin.

Arsenal meanwhile are able to field their first choice back four for the first time this season. Coquelin, Chambers and Oxlade-Chamberlain make up a young and interesting midfield for the Gunners.

Tomas Rosicky is back in the starting XI after sitting out against West Ham, replacing the injured Danny Welbeck.

Still no start for Theo Walcott who is on the bench once again, as are Arsenal youngsters Ainsley Maitland-Niles and Chuba Akpom.
