Arsenal predicted line-up v Southampton

Published 1 Comments

Arsenal will look to win their sixth successive Premier League game and consolidate their position at the top of table against Southampton on Tuesday night.

The Gunners have been in fine form of late and are unbeaten in six league games conceding just two goals in the process.

They travel to the south coast to meet a Southampton side struggling to replicate their early season form.

After winning five of their opening nine games, the Saints have won just three of their last 13 and have dropped to ninth in the table as a result.

Arsene Wenger confirmed that he will be able to welcome back Aaron Ramsey, Thomas Vermaelen and Mikel Arteta to the game but admits there are doubts over Jack Wilshere.

The England international has been in fine form in Ramsey's absence but took a heavy blow to his ankle in Friday's Fa Cup tie against Coventry and is struggling for fitness.

"We have a doubt about Jack Wilshere, who had this ankle problem during the game against Coventry," Wenger said to reporters.

"But we have three players back normally in the squad. The three are Vermaelen, Arteta and Ramsey.

"They should all be back and available, but we might lose Jack for tomorrow's game."

Arsenal will likely welcome Bacary Sagna back after resting him on Friday while Wenger may be tempted to start Lukas Podolski after the player's brace against Coventry.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain will likely drop to the bench after starting his first Arsenal game since August last week with either Mathieu Flamini or Arteta coming in.

Here we take a look at Arsenal's potential starting XI for the game.

Possible Arsenal line-up

Szczesny; Sagna, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Gibbs; Ramsey, Flamini, Ozil; Cazorla, Podolski, Giroud.
