Arsenal Prediction

Depending on what happens in the match between Manchester United and Liverpool, Arsenal could move into 4th spot at the expense of United if they take all three points against a Southampton side who are fighting for their Premier League lives.

Arsenal received a boost ahead of this fixture in midweek when they overcame Belarus outfit BATE 3-0 at home in the second leg of the round of 16 in the Europa League which means The Gunners have progressed through to the quarter-finals of the competition and will face French club, Rennes in the last eight.

Back to the Premier League though, and Arsenal sit in 5th place but level on points with Chelsea who aren’t in league action this weekend due to their League Cup final with Manchester City, so Arsenal have a great opportunity to take advantage here.

The hosts possess a very decent looking home record of 10-2-1 28/11 which includes winning their last six matches on the trot on home turf with wins gained over Tottenham, Huddersfield Town, Burnley, Fulham, Chelsea and Cardiff City.

During this sequence, Arsenal scored 16 goals and conceded just 5 in reply.

 

Key-Facts – Arsenal v Southampton

  • Arsenal have won their last 6 home matches on the trot in the EPL
  • Arsenal have lost just once at home all season in the league
  • Arsenal are unbeaten in their last 6 encounters at home to Southampton

 

Southampton Prediction

Onto Southampton and they were dumped back into the relegation mire after their damaging 2-1 defeat at home to relegation rivals, Cardiff City in what was a real ‘six-pointer’, and this followed on from back-to-back draws with Crystal Palace and Burnley, meaning The Saints are without a win from their last three league matches.

On a positive note, it’s also just one defeat from their last six matches, which includes wins against Leicester City and Everton, but Saints manager, Ralph Hasenhuttl will be demanding a much better performance this time around than their last showing against Cardiff.

Southampton have registered just five wins all season to date, three of which have come away from home amidst an overall record of 3-3-7 13/23 which at first glance doesn’t appear to be too hot, but the visitors are unbeaten in their last four away matches.

Two wind and two draws means that Southampton have earned 8 points from the last possible 12 on offer on the road which is a pretty impressive points haul considering their current predicament.

Betting Tips Verdict

However, when all’s said and done, Arsenal are unbeaten in their last six encounters with Southampton at the Emirates Stadium in the Premier League, and they should record a seventh home win on the trot here.
