Arsenal are set to take on Southampton this weekend, with the Saints desperately needing a win.

The Gunners will be without Henrikh Mkhitaryan for the visit of Southampton, with the Armenian picking up a knee injury in the win over CSKA Moscow in the Europa League.

Arsene Wenger confirmed the midfielder will miss the game against the Saints, but the club are not sure how long he will be out for.

David Ospina missed the Europa League tie with CSKA, but with Petr Cech now fit, the Czech keeper will certainly start against Southampton.

Arsenal will be handed a boost though, with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returning having been cup-tied in Europe in mid week.

Mario Lemina faces a late fitness test for Southampton, with the midfielder suffering from a virus. Sam McQueen has already been ruled out, owing to a groin injury.

Here’s how we predict Arsenal will line up in the game against Southampton.
