Team News: Arsenal vs Southampton
After what felt like the longest Interlull in the history of mankind, we return to some proper football this weekend.
Following an impressive display in the 2-0 victory at Anfield, Arsenal look to improve on their offensive play (and maintain our defensive prowess) in only our second home game of the season against Southampton.
Abou Diaby misses out on the game after picking up a minor (cue an 8 month lay off) knock whilst on duty for France, Chesney returns after injury and Koscielny remains on the bench after an impressive three games from The BFG.
Here`s the line up.
Arsenal team: Szczesny, Jenkinson, Mertesacker, Vermaelen, Gibbs, Coquelin, Arteta, Cazorla, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Gervinho, Podolski
Substitutes: Koscielny, Santos, Giroud, Walcott, Ramsey, Arshavin, Mannone
