After a dramatic loss to Brighton and Hove Albion, Gunners will travel St Mary’s Stadium where they will meet Southampton. The Saints are just three points behind the Gunners when it comes to points table ranking. Arsenal are currently ranking on 10th position with 40 points in 30 matches whereas Southampton are placed at 14th position with 37 points in same number of matches.
Southampton started project restart with a bang as they crushed Norwich City by 3-0 which was an impressive dominant display. Thanks to strikes from Danny Ings, Stuart Armstrong, helping Southampton to claim their biggest win of the season so far. This victory helped the Saints to climb upto 14th position. Although their home form is a matter of concern for them. Before the closure of league, Saints faced three defeats in four matches infront of their home fans.
On the other hand Arsenal will enter in their third away game since the league resumption and the restart for them have been miserable. After a defeat to Manchester City, they were beaten by Brighton in the next game by 2-1. Match against Brighton brought several worries for the Gunners. Their front line goal keeper Bernd Leno got injured.
Nothing is going in Arsenal’s favour this season as their away record is getting dreadful with just one win in 14 games since late August. Last year when these two sides met at North London, we witnessed a 2-2 exciting draw between the both sides. Although in that fixture, the Saints were way better with 21 targeted shots than the Arsenal with just 12. Over 2.5 goals have been witnessed in three of the last four games between Southampton and Arsenal so we can expect and exciting game between the two sides.
