Southampton vs Arsenal
Arsenal has the worst defense among the teams actually in European zone and for this match has problems at the centre in that sector.
Koscielny is the only fit central defender available, but he was out since before the start of season so probably should be not ready for full 90 minutes.
paphastopolous ( 10) and Mustafi ( 16 2g), almost ever starters lately are both suspended, Holding ( 9+1 also him often used in last month) and Mavropanos are injuried.
In other sectors of field, striker Welbeck ( 1+7 1g) and midf. Rowe are out, too.
About hosts, second from bottom with only one win, only team without home wins and the third worst defence in league, Bertrand ( def.12) remain out and centre back Stephens ( 7+1 1g often starter in last two months) is a new missing.
Arsenal is fifth on table, but in league gained a clean sheet just in last round at home against Huddersfield after a lot of matches, while Southampton suffered 16 goals only in last six rounds - six of them against City.
Arsenal should win this match also with big advantage, but considering their defense also with problems at the back today, i don't think Southampton shouldn't be able to score, too.
