Arsenal travel to Southampton today knowing that victory is a must on a weekend when Chelsea have dropped points and the two Manchester clubs go head-to-head at Old Trafford.
Kick-off is rapidly approaching and Arsene Wenger has named his starting eleven.

The team offers up few surprises but supporters have been left pretty angry nonetheless due to the omission of Jack Wilshere.
The English midfielder hasn’t started a single league game this season but after a fantastic performance in the Europa League on Thursday night, some fans felt he deserved to start ahead of the likes of Granit Xhaka.
At one point it looked like Wilshere’s Arsenal career may be over, but he’s slowly working his way back into the plans of Wenger, even if not trusted yet to start a Premier League match.
Can he produce a fantastic cameo from the bench today?
Fans took to Twitter to share their disappointment with the team selection…
No Wilshere again 🙄 https://t.co/MbeyEoiKUn
