Team News – Player Ratings – Match Highlights
Match: Southampton v Arsenal
Stadium: St. Mary’s Stadium
Kick-Off (UK Time): 13:30 16/12/2018
Arsenal enter the busy Premier League festive period today with a trip to the south coast to take on Southampton.
The Gunners will have to use all of their squad over the coming weeks and today is no exception with a serious lack of defensive cover.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shkodran Mustafi are both suspended for the clash with the Saints while Rob Holding will, of course, miss the rest of the season.
Unai Emery and Arsenal will have to be on top form to solve this problem and ensure that the unbeaten run continues for the Gunners.
