Arsenal play their third game in eight days tonight, as they face off against Southampton on the South Coast.

It has been a disastrous start for Arsenal since the return of football, losing to both Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion in their first two fixtures.

Both fixtures were away from home and that’s the case again tonight as the Gunners face another trip to the South Coast to face a Southampton who are coming off the back of a comprehensive 3-0 win away at Norwich City.

Before lockdown, the North London outfit were showing signing of improvement, but were still very inconsistent in terms of performances and results.

So which players will be tasked with the challenge of picking up a vital three points? Here we predict Arteta’s XI…

Goalkeeper: The biggest talking point from the game away at Brighton was the injury sustained by Bernd Leno. This leaves Emiliano Martinez to come into the side for tonight’s game.
