Arsenal handed mixed Southampton team news ahead of Saturday clash

Arsenal look to bounce back

Arsenal are looking to bounce back from a 2-1 defeat against Everton that left them sat 7th in the Premier League, and meant that after 10 games unbeaten they have now lost three of their last four Premier League games.

A Demarai Gray inspired side dealt the latest blow to Mikel Arteta’s side, despite the Toffees not having won in eight games beforehand, and have left many Arsenal fans seriously questioning just how much progress has been made under their rookie manager.

It could have been worse, too. Only marginal offsides kept Richarlison out twice, and while Arsenal will point to a potential red card that should have been shown to Ben Godfrey and a series of squandered chances, they were ultimately second best, something that the scoreline reflected.

Now, they look to end the negative run with a home game against Southampton, who have themselves won just one of their last five games in the top flight.

Southampton have a goalkeeper, but key striker out

Ahead of the game, Ralph Hassenhutl was quizzed on the availability of his players, and provided mixed news for Arsenal fans.

Both of his goalkeepers are out injured, meaning that emergency transfer Willy Caballero, who only joined the club three days ago, is likely to be handed his debut.

However, it is not all good news for Southampton, with star man Che Adams having “pulled up” in training on Wednesday, and now considered a doubt for the Emirates clash.

Can Arsenal get back to winning ways?
