Arsenal vs Southampton Prediction & Tips
Arsenal to get out of the abyss, Southampton to keep dreaming. The thirteenth day of the Premier League sees the gunners on the field returning from three defeats in a row, the last 1-0 at home to Burnely, and only fifteenth in the standings with a five-point advantage over third-last place which means relegation. Arteta will have to find a way to raise the team but the real surprise of the tournament will be faced. In fact, Southampton are fourth in the standings with twenty-three points and reach the Emirates match after two consecutive 3-0 wins with Sheffield United and 2-1 with Brighton. The problems for Arsenal also come from the infirmary which hosts not only Ozil but also Thomas, both of whom will be out of the game for the match.
Arsenal at home in the Premier League have lost the last four in a row, scoring just one goal and conceding as many as 7.
Southampton in the league are unbeaten away in five rounds, two draws and three wins.
With 24 goals Southampton have the third best attack in the Premier League, while Arsenal’s attacking department have only scored 10 goals in 12 games.
In the last three seasons the challenge has ended in a draw twice with the results of 1-1 and 2-2.
Two teams at profoundly different times that could ultimately crash each other. Arsenal are in free fall and cannot afford to lose. Southampton, on the other hand, are in full swing but it’s never easy at the Emirates. So we aim for a draw, thinking of a very blocked game in which the gunners will focus on defense, the only department that truly lives up to the name and history of the Londoners.
