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

Didn't think we would start Giroud from the bench and completely forgot we had the dangerous runs of Gervinho to put on show. Well, all one can say is Good Luck, lads.

Odd team selection. This could be the perfect game for Giroud to get that burden off his back.

If the team can do the job and get a few goals before bringing him on, it could work in his favor to play with less pressure. Again, there is Montpellier to come midweek which should be big for him.

Happen to be spending a week in Toronto and the game isn't being shown live. Any links to a good stream?

Great first half but WTF Szczesny. Very disappointing way to end the half. Even more disappointing to concede our first goal of the season like that.

We can't link streams on here. Network rules. Google can help though.

Great half, I hear on 'Player'. What a way to concede our first goal. A clean sheet would have ensured the defense has something to hold onto and who knows how long the trend would have gone for. Still looking for a good streaming of our game, please.
