Unai Emery has made ten changes to the side that beat Qarabag in the Europa League as Arsenal prepare to take on Southampton at St. Mary’s.
Laurent Koscielny is the only player who has retained his spot from the midweek fixture, with the Arsenal captain starting for the first time in the Premier League this season. The Frenchman is accompanied by Hector Bellerin, Stephan Lichtsteiner and Nacho Monreal in the backline, with Bernd Leno starting in goal.
Up ahead in attack, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang returns, with Alexandre Lacazette dropping to the bench. Granit Xhaka, Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi comprise the midfield trio for Arsenal.
