Southampton vs Arsenal Predictions

  • Southampton have lost five of their last six games
  • The Saints have lost their last four home matches
  • Arsenal have won seven of their 12 trips to sides below them this season

Rocky run for Arsenal

A few weeks ago Arsenal were looking good for the Champions League, heading into the international break having celebrated a victory at Aston Villa. That victory was seen as a huge one in the Gunners’ top four chase, but two damaging defeats have left them fifth.

Losing 3-0 at Crystal Palace and 2-1 at home to Brighton leaves the Gunners three points shy of a Tottenham side who have hit their stride. Mikel Arteta’s men have a history of falling short in the big moments, so there’s a worry their bad run will continue. Luckily for them, they’ve been dealt a favourable hand this week.

Saints sliding

With a 12 point lead over the bottom three, Southampton shouldn’t need to concern themselves with relegation this term. However, that’s about the only positive for the Saints right now. They’ve slid down the table after some poor form, with only the bottom six below them following a run of five defeats in six.

Last weekend they were blown away by a Chelsea side who had a point to prove. Manager Ralph Hasenhuttl made a point of mentioning they got the Blues at the wrong time, but that 6-0 loss was just the latest hammering they’ve received under his reign.

To make matters worse for the hosts, they’ve been struggling despite a recent run of home games. They’ve now lost four straight matches at St Mary’s, including defeats to Newcastle and Watford. They’ve conceded 14 goals across that run, so this is a massive opportunity for the visitors.

Gunners good for a victory

Arsenal have won four of their five trips to the bottom five sides this term, so they should impress in this clash. They’ve won seven of their 12 trips to sides below them this term so taking out the Saints shouldn’t be a problem.

Given just how bad the Saints were in their 6-0 hammering, getting Arsenal at just shy of evens looks like great value. While the Gunners have struggled, they aren’t likely to get any better chance to turn their fortunes around. Back them to take the win, while a 1-0 victory is my correct score selection with that landing in two of Arsenal’s last three away wins.

Southampton predicted lineup: Forster; Livramento, Bednarek, Salisu, Walker-Peters; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Romeu, Elyounoussi; Adams, Broja

Arsenal predicted lineup: Ramsdale; Soares, White, Gabriel, Tavares; Odegaard, Xhaka; Saka, Smith-Rowe, Martinelli; Lacazette
