Southampton go into this match in 10th place on the table on 42 points from their 34 matches.  Their last 2 matches have been successive goalless draws away at Liverpool and at home to Hull City and they haven’t won in their last 4 League matches taking just 2 points from the last 12 on offer.  Their recent home form has been poor and they failed to score in 3 of their last 4 home matches, 2 of these games ended in 0-0 draws.  Southampton home games have averaged 2.2 goals each this season with 7 of the 16 matches delivering for over 2.5 goal backers.

Arsenal can move above 5th place Manchester United with a victory here and it will keep their faint hopes of a top 4 finish alive.  They have won 3 of their last 4 League matches, most recently beating Manchester United 2-0 at home on Sunday but their away form has cost them and they have lost 5 of their last 6 away matches taking just 3 points from the 18 on offer in this time.  The most recent away match was a 2-0 defeat at Spurs and that match broke a run of 10 successive Arsenal away games that has delivered 3 goals or more in them.

When Southampton hosted Arsenal in the League last season they won 4-0 and in the reverse fixture this season it was Arsenal who won 2-1 at home.

Southampton 5/2

Draw 24/10

Arsenal 11/10

 

Suggested bet:  Over 2.5 goals at 7/10.

Southampton games have been low scoring of late but Arsenal have nothing to lose and will be pushing for a victory and this should ensure chances at both ends and another high scoring Arsenal away game is on the cards.
