Arsene Wenger has revealed his team news ahead of the Premier League clash with Southampton at the Emirates stadium on Sunday.
The Arsenal manager has seen his side step up their game in recent weeks following a frustrating run of form right after the closing of the January transfer window.
The Gunners managed to beat Stoke City 3-0 at home last Sunday before thrashing CSKA Moscow 4-1 in the first leg of the quarter-final of the Europa League a couple of days later.
Arsenal’s results have been looking much better in recent weeks but what remains a concern for Wenger is the fitness of his players.
And it now appears as though Ainsley Mainland-Niles, who broke into the first team at the start of this season, is the latest man to be struggling with an injury.
According to Wenger, the young Englishman will not be named in the squad for this weekend even though there are hopes of him returning next week.
“Ainsley is short for this weekend, but he might be back for Moscow.” the Arsenal manager said
