Arsenal travel to the south coast at the weekend, ready to take on Southampton after trouncing BATE Borisov 6-0 in their final Europa League group game on Thursday.

Before their 3-1 loss to Manchester United, the Gunners had won three straight and they will be hoping to get back to winning ways in Sunday’s 12pm kick-off.

With fixtures against West Ham United and Newcastle United to follow, this is a great opportunity for Arsène Wenger to build up confidence again before the Christmas fixture against Liverpool.

The Saints have won just one of their last six league games, but have won two from six at home.
