The Arsenal vs Southampton live stream will see two teams desperate for a win. The Gunners have lost two straight Premier League matches and will look to return to the fine form they were in not long ago. Meanwhile, the Saints are seeking just the fourth win of the current campaign.

Southampton sit in 16th place, so while they aren't in the relegation zone, they could easily slide down toward it. The Saints had a frustrating draw last week, when Brighton's Neal Maupay scored an equalizing goal in the 98th minute. The young team has proven capable of creating chances, just not converting them. 

Against Arsenal, Ralph Hasenhuttl has a goalkeeping conundrum on his hands: Alex McCarthy injured his hamstring against Brighton and back-up Fraser Forster is still be unavailable. That means Southampton have to put new signee Willy Caballero to work straight away.

Arsenal will be raring to make up for a terrible performance against Everton. Mikel Arteta was brutal in his comments after that match, saying, "We didn't kill it." His side will certainly attempt to do so against Southampton. They will be aided by being at Emirates Stadium, where they have won the last seven of eight games in all competitions. Plus, the team have Emile Smith Rowe back in action, after he sat out against Everton. He's on the bench but could well come on later.

Here's how they line up:

Arsenal: Ramsdale, Tomiyasu, White, Gabriel, Tierney, Saka, Partey, Xhaka, Martinelli, Odegaard, Lacazette.

Southampton: Caballero, Livramento, Stephens, Bednarek, Walker-Peters, Redmond, Diallo, Ward-Prowse, Tella, Broja, Armstrong.
