Olivier Giroud, Alex Iwobi and Aaron Ramsey to Starts: Arsenal vs Southampton Predicted Line-up
Arsenal will play host to Southampton during the mid-week at Emirate Stadium in the EFL Cup quarter-final clash.
Having won their last EPL game against AFC Bournemouth by 3-1, nothing but a win will be expected from Arsene Wenger’s men, if they are to remain in the competition.
Key changes are expected from the team that defeated Bournemouth over the weekend.
While Spanish duos Santi Cazorla and Right-back Hector Bellerin still struggling for fitness we however expect young Nigerian star Alex Iwobi to start after missing last game.
Key players like Ozil, Alexes Sanchez, Petr Cech and Laurent Koscielny will be likely to take a rest while goalie David Ospina will be expected to return to the starting spot.

Keeper: David Ospina
Defenders: Mathieu Debuchy, Shkodran Mustafi, Gabriel Paulista and Kieran Gibbs
