Arsenal have the chance to extend their run of Premier league wins to three and move to the top of the table with a win over Southampton today.
The Gunners could move into pole position if Leicester City lose to Liverpool today.
Mesut Ozil is expected to keep his place as Arsenal’s number 10 following the Germany international’s masterclass against Manchester City on Monday.
The 27-year-old provided assists for both of Arsenal’s goal taking his tally for the season up to 15. The in-form playmaker can match Theirry Henry’s club record for 16 assists in a single season if he sets up a goal today.
Ozil has been in sensational form this season and has won back-to-back Vitality Arsenal Play of the Month awards over the last two months.
