Arsenal Confirmed Line-up:Wenger makes 5 Changes

Arsene Wenger has named a much changed side to face the Saints as he looks to preserve his stars for the Europa League Arsenal youngster Reiss Nelson has been given the nod to start against Southampton, with Mesut Ozil and Alexandre Lacazette having to settle for a spot on the bench. Lacazette may feel he can play in tandem with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang , but Arsene Wenger is taking no chances with the French striker ahead of an important European clash with CSKA Moscow. He, along with Ozil, may still be called to play, but Wenger will hope he can allow his Europa League stars to remain resting on the bench.
