After getting no help from Manchester United or West Ham yesterday, Arsenal get set to take on Southampton today in a quest to remain within touching distance of fourth place heading into the busiest stretch of the season so far.  As mentioned yesterday, Morgan Schneiderlin is out for the visitors, and Arsenal, well, you know their injury story.

Arsenal have their work cut out for them today, facing the league's best defense with a rather patchy attack, but being at home has to be a good thing; hopefully the comforts of home and the knowledge that their rivals are still picking up points will be enough of a push to help Arsenal find a way through that defense and to three home-cooked points.
