Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta has named his starting eleven and substitutes for his side’s FA Cup fourth-round clash against Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium this afternoon.
The Gunners have gone with a strong line-up, with Rob Holding and Gabriel playing in a back four, along with Cedric and Hector Bellerin.
Mohamed Elneny and Granit Xhaka will look to provide midfield solidity, with Nicolas Pepe and Willian on the flanks for Arsenal.
Eddie Nketiah and Gabriel Martinelli have been given the task of leading the forward line with Alexandre Lacazette on the bench.
Thomas Partey and Bukayo Saka are some of the options Arsenal have on the bench against Southampton.
With Arsenal having a middling campaign in the Premier League, Arteta will hope to attack the FA Cup again this season after winning it last year.
