Following their statement win over Manchester United last time out, Arsenal have put themselves right back into the top four race – providing they win their final four games of the season.

The Gunners can’t afford another slip-up as they sit six points adrift of the Champions League qualification places with a game in hand on Manchester City and two on Liverpool.

Next up for the Gunners is a rescheduled trip to the south coast to play Southampton, one of their games in hand on their rivals at the top of the table.

Arsene Wenger’s men were too much for Southampton when they met earlier in the season in the FA Cup fourth round, but the Saints put in an excellent shift against Liverpool last time out and will be well up for this one in their bid to secure a top 10 finish.

How will Arsenal line up? Here is out predicted XI.
