Arsenal will be hoping that the international break will help them get their season back on track. The Gunners’ defeat to Leicester last time out was very disappointing and manager Unai Emery will be expecting a much better performance against Southampton on Saturday.
The Saints are really struggling with Ralph Hasenhuttl coming under increasing pressure with his side sitting second from bottom. Their last league win came against Sheffield United all the way back in mid-September.
Ahead of the match this weekend, Arsenal have one fitness concern, with Dani Ceballos remaining a doubt due to a hamstring injury. There is also a question mark over whether Granit Xhaka will come back into first-team contention.
Southampton currently have a fully fit squad to choose from, which is a rarety considering we are three months into a busy season.
At the bookies, Arsenal are massive favourites to get the three points with Coral having them at 1/2 odds-on to win. A draw is currently 15/4 with Betfair while a Saints victory is 6/1 at BetVictor.
Predicted Score – 2-0 to Arsenal
