Arsenal continue their push to secure a Champions League spot for next season when they face Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium on Saturday afternoon (15:00 UK time).
The Gunners suffered a 2-1 defeat against Brighton at the Emirates Stadium last time out, leaving them in fifth place on 54 points, three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham who currently hold a spot in the Champions League.
Southampton meanwhile sit in 14th place on 36 points, having scored 37 goals and conceded 52. With seven matches remaining, Saints trail sixth-placed West Ham United by 15 points for a spot in the Conference League qualifiers.
Ralph Hasenhüttl’s men were defeated 6-0 in their last game at home against Chelsea, extending their winless streak to five (one draw and four losses). The previous league meetings between the teams saw Arsenal come out on top 3-0 at Emirates Stadium in December. Alexandre Lacazette, Martin Odegaard and Gabriel all got on the scoresheet.

Southampton team news
After being ineligible to face his parent club Chelsea last time out, Armando Broja is expected to start against Arsenal meaning Adam Armstrong dropping to the bench this weekend. Oriol Romeu meanwhile misses out through injury while Lyanco, Shane Long and Alex McCarthy all have a chance of returning from their respective knocks to make Hasenhüttl’s squad.
Southampton predicted XI: Forster; Valery, Bednarek, Salisu; Walker-Peters, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Diallo, Perraud; Adams, Broja.
Arsenal team news
One selection headache for Mikel Arteta this weekend is who plays at left-back. Kieran Tierney is ruled out for the remainder of this season meaning either midfielder Granit Xhaka or Nuno Tavares starting there. Elsewhere there’s doubts over Alexandre Lacazette’s avaliablty following the Frenchman being absent from training earlier this week for unspecified reasons. This could potentially open the door for Eddie Nketiah to lead the Gunners line.
Arsenal predicted XI: Ramsdale; Cedric, White, Gabriel, Xhaka; Odegaard, Lokonga, Smith-Rowe; Saka, Nketiah, Martinelli.
