Arsenal could only scrape a win against Huddersfield Town at the Emirates last time out in the Premier League, so they’ll be looking to put in a more convincing display later on today.
The Gunners will be desperate to secure a top four spot in the current campaign, but they currently find themselves in a battle with Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur.
Interestingly, Unai Emery’s side will travel to St Mary’s to face Southampton in their next Premier League fixture. The Saints are under new management and currently find themselves flirting with the possibility of relegation, so they’ll have their eyes set firmly on causing an upset in front of home support later on today.
However, with the Gunners in fine form, Arsenal can pile the pressure on Chelsea if Emery starts this star DUO…
Matteo Guendouzi already appears to have adjust to life at the Emirates as he’s definitely played his part in Arsenal’s European quest and top-four push.
The Frenchman put in a very accomplished display against Manchester United at Old Trafford not so long ago, so it’s clear to see that he can handle the big occasions.
So, Emery should reward the youngster for all of his hard work by gifting him a place in the starting lineup today.
Alex Iwobi has had to settle for a place on the substitutes’ bench in recent times in the Premier League, which has raised quite a few eyebrows in North London.
The Nigerian international has been one of Arsenal’s shining lights in the current campaign, with one goal and five assists to his name already, so he will play a crucial part from here on in.
Sadly, the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette struggled to produce in the final third against Huddersfield, so the Gunners could do with bringing in Iwobi to offer a different dynamic.
