Arsenal line up for Southampton – Ox to start

With Arsenal about to play the second of three Premier League games in the space of a week, and with our reasonably lengthy injury list meaning that the squad options available to Arsene Wenger are a bit limited, it might not be an easy job for the boss.

The last thing the prof needs is to lose any more players and so he will be concerned about overplaying certain key players. That is perhaps why we saw that Mesut Ozil had jetted off somewhere warm for a break both before and after the Man City match.

And it is why I think the boss might make a change or two to the team to face Southampton tonight and in the game against Bournemouth on Monday, even though we have seen the same 11 players starting a lot of games recently and doing very well.

One change I think Wenger will make to the side tonight is to bring Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain in, probably for Joel Campbell. The Costa Rican has been running himself intyo the ground while the England star looked sharp coming on in the last game.

And a game against a former club often helps to bring the best from a player, so this is how I see the Gunners starting line up tonight.

Cech
Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal
Flamini, Ramsey
Chamberlain, Ozil, Walcott
Giroud

Do you think this would be a good change and should Wenger make any more?
