PHOTO: Is another night of woe in store for Arsene Wenger and Arsenal?

Emirates Inside

Arsenal will entertain Southampton in the Premier League on Wednesday hoping to fare better than they did the last time the two sides met.

When Southampton arrive at Emirates Stadium on Wednesday, they will not need to cast their minds back very far for inspiration.

Visits to Arsenal are never easy, regardless of the competition and the strength of the selection made by Gunners boss Arsene Wenger.

The Saints will know that, but they will also point to the fact that they emerged victorious on their last trip to north London.

The Capital One Cup may not be the Premier League in terms of prestige and intensity, but Arsenal will need no reminding as to how tough they found an encounter back in September.

Can they exact revenge in midweek or will it be another night to forget for Wenger and his men as they suffer more home discomfort against Ronald Koeman’s travelling troops?
