After beating Manchester City on Monday night, Arsène Wenger has decided too as Arsenal look to go top of the Premier League on Boxing Day.

League leaders Leicester City lost at Anfield earlier in the afternoon, handing Wenger’s men the chance to go top with a positive result on the south coast against a struggling Southampton side.

Saturday’s match marks Arsenal’s 4000th ever in the top flight but the Gunners haven’t won at St. Mary’s Stadium since 2003. Time to put that right?

Arsenal XI: Čech; Bellerín, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal; Flamini, Ramsey; Campbell, Özil, Walcott; Giroud.

Southampton XI: Stekelenburg; Martina, Fonte, Dijk, Bertrand; Clasie, Wanyama; Davis, Ward-Prowse, Mané; Long.
