With the likes of Granit Xhaka and Hector Bellerin out of the team due to suspensions, Mikel Arteta has been forced to start with Maitland-Niles, Pépé and Nketiah which may not be a bad thing considering Arsenal’s recent poor run of results. The team currently sits at 15th in the Premier League table, which is a stark contrast to Southampton’s 4th position.

The Saints have no real injury concerns and name the same side that bested the Blades at the weekend. Che Adams has four goals from 12 games this season. Danny Ings has six. Meanwhile Nathan Redmond starts as a substitute once more despite  bagging one himself off the bench in the last fixture.

There are tonnes of benefits to Amazon Prime membership beyond Prime Video access and next-day delivery. Prime members get a free music streaming services, free books from Kindle, Prime Wardrobe for clothes shopping and more.

That said, if all you want is a month of football, next-day deliveries for Christmas shopping while you get the presents in and no strings attached, then, yes, it’s very easy to cancel when the final whistle has gone. Go to your Amazon Prime membership page, click Manage Prime Membership and then End Membership. And that’s it. Easy.

UK Amazon Prime subscribers who are abroad, and wish to stream the Premier League on Prime Video, will find themselves blocked unless they use a VPN. It’s only in the UK that Amazon holds the rights for these fixtures, so trying to access from elsewhere in the world will not work.

A Virtual Private Network (VPN) helps you get around this obstacle. A VPN creates a private connection between your device and the internet, such that the servers and services you’re accessing aren’t aware of what you’re doing. All the information passing back and forth is entirely encrypted.

There are many VPN providers out there, with some more reliable and safe than others. As a rule, we’d suggest a paid-for service such as ExpressVPN or NordVPN.

NordVPN 3 months free + 30 day money-back guarantee
You can get three months free when you sign up to a year-long plan, bringing VPN access to smart devices including the Amazon Fire TV Stick, laptops, TVs and both Android and iOS mobiles and tablets. Express also offers a 30-day money-back guarantee.View Deal

Once you’ve made your choice, all you need to do is sign in to your VPN service through whichever device you’d like to use to watch the match. When prompted to select a server, you need to pick one which is based in the country whose content you’d like to access. Then navigate to the relevant video streaming app or website and you’re in.
