Arsenal v Southampton: Probable lineups, injury updates

Posted by

Arsenal host Southampton at the Emirates Stadium on Saturday as Arsene Wenger looks to record his second victory of the season.

The French tactician may hand debuts to his two new signings Shkodran Mustafi and Lucas Perez. The duo completed moves to Arsenal before the end of the window and have trained this week.

Mustafi suffered a injury scare while on international duty with Germany but has been cleared fit to start. Meanwhile Perez is expected to start on the bench with Olivier Giroud getting the nod to start. Both Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey are expected to miss the clash with injuries.

Meanwhile, Southampton manager Claude Puel will once again be able to call upon Fraser Forster who returned to training this week.

Arsenal: Cech; Bellerin, Mustafi, Koscielny, Monreal; Xhaka, Cazorla; Sanchez, Ozil, Walcott; Giroud

Southampton: Forster; Soares, Fonte, Van Dijk, Bertrand; Romeu, Hojbjerg; Redmond, Tadic, Boufal; Long
