Premier League action returns to the Emirates Stadium with the visit of Ronald Koeman’s Southampton.

The third consecutive home game in a row will be a good test for the Gunners. Southampton turned up emphatically in the reverse fixture not so long ago and Arsene Wenger has called for his players to exact some revenge for that big loss.

The Boxing Day debacle may haunt Arsenal who only squeezed past 1-0 to Saints in last season’s fixture in north London.

There can be no arguments that it is a game where anything other than three points will be a bigger disaster than the one five weeks ago.

Will this be the XI picked?
