Arsenal team news: Expected 4-2-3-1 line-up vs Southampton with Mikel Arteta to rotate | Football | Sport

Midfielders: Ceballos, Elneny, Willian

With Arsenal facing Southampton again just a few days later in the league, Arteta may well opt to rest the trio of Thomas Partey, Granit Xhaka and Emile Smith Rowe.

Dani Ceballos is expected to pass a late fitness test for this afternoon’s match while Mohamed Elneny could also come into the holding midfield role.

Willian has been sparingly used by Arteta in recent weeks but he looked sharp in an attacking-midfield role against Newcastle in the previous round of the FA Cup and may well get a chance in that role again.
