Welbeck to Start? Arsenal’s Predicted Line-up v Southampton

By Joel Turner IN FA Cup,General,Lineup - 10:34 Jan 28th 2017

Riding high after dumping Liverpool out of the EFL Cup mid-week, Southampton will prove tough opponents for Arsenal in the FA Cup today.

Arsene Wenger has to decide on the right blend of experience and youth, while making key decisions about whether players returning from injury are ready to start the game.

Following a tempestuous game against Burnley in the league last weekend, Wenger will be hoping cooler heads prevail as The Gunners look to progress through to the Cup's Fifth Round.

England forward Theo Walcott will return to the squad, although Swiss Granit Xhaka will not feature after his red card last weekend.
Mohamed Elneny is still taking part in the African Cup of Nations and Santi Cazorla remains a long-term injury absentee.Wenger was boosted by Francis Coquelin's return in last weekend's win against the Clarets.

Francis Coquelin returned last week and will likely feature, as should Hector Bellerin - who also gained valuable minutes on his return against Burnley.

Danny Welbeck is pushing to be included after returning for a long-term injury and could start in place of Olivier Giroud. Nacho Monreal could also be given a breather, with Kieran Gibbs taking his place in the team.
