Arsène Wenger has stuck with the same 11 that triumphed over Manchester City 2-1 last Monday night. With the games coming thick and fast over this festive period, Arsene had a decision to make. Would he make rotate tonight and for the game coming up against AFC Bournemouth? The other option was to send the same successful 11 to go again tonight and hope they can do the business in a ground that has proved to be a tricky venue for us in recent years, even if the Saints form is not so great today. Hopefully we can get through the game without further injuries and also hopefully picking up some very important 3 points to boot.

Confirmed Line Up:

Cech, Bellerin, Mertesacker, Koscielny, Monreal, Flamini, Ramsey, Özil, Walcott, Campbell, Giroud

Subs: Ospina, Gibbs, Gabriel, Chambers, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Iwobi, Reine-Adelaide
