The striker has been out of action with an ankle injury but is set to be in the squad for the clash against the Saints at The Emirates as Arsene Wenger’s men look to reach the semi-finals of the cup competition.

Wenger’s side were put through their paces at a bright and sunny London Colney on Tuesday morning as they completed their final preparations for the game.

Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez were both involved in the session, although the pair are expected to be reseted by Wenger as the hectic festive period in the Premier League looms large.

Perez will be hoping to impress if given a chance following his move to Arsenal from Deportivo La Coruna late in the summer transfer window.

Here are some of the best pictures from Arsenal’s final training session ahead of their cup clash against Southampton.
