Arsenal v Southampton Prediction 2nd February 201630th January 2016 / lee
Arsenal v Southampton Premier League, 2nd February
Just back on boxing day, Southampton trounced the Gunners 4-0 at St Mary’s. That is back to back wins now in the Premier League for the Saints over Arsenal and the Gunners need to arrest that to snap out of a little funk they are on in the Premier League title race, having failed to win any of their last three league matches. Can the Gunners find a response or will the Saints deliver another hammer blow to them? Arsenal are 3/4 to bank the win on home soil, with the draw at 13/5 and Southampton at 15/4.

Arsenal v Southampton Betting Tips
What do Arsenal have in the tank? It wasn’t a good January in the league for them and no-one conceded more shots against on target during the month than Arsenal did. Draws against Liverpool and Stoke on the road was followed up by a home loss against Chelsea in their last Premier League match, so they are winless in three now. They have a decent home record this season with a W7 D2 L2 on the board and they have won four of their last five on home soil, the last two victories at the Emirates both coming with a clean sheet. They do have a great home record against Southampton having lost just one of their last 21 home games against the Saints in all competitions, that defeat coming in last season’s Capital One Cup in North London.
The Gunners have won their last three home games in the Premier League against the Saints and have conceded just the one goal in total in those three matches. Arsenal to win to nil on Tuesday is trading at a price of 7/4 with online betting site Bet365. Ten times before Arsene Wenger has faced Ronald Koeman as an opposing manager and Wenger has won two and lost four of those previous meetings. The Gunners took a win over Burnley in the FA Cup on the weekend, Alexis Sanchez netting the winner. Alexis Sanchez has scored in both of his appearances against Southampton at the Emirates Stadium for Arsenal and is well worth a poke, along with Olivier Giroud in the anytime goalscorer market.
Southampton new boy Charlie Austin has scored in his two previous Premier League games against Arsenal, but ended up on the losing side of 2-1 scoreline on both occasions. Austin was on fire on his debut for the Saints, netting a winner in a 1-0 win at Old Trafford against Manchester United in their last league match. An Arsenal 2-1 correct score on this one will return odds of 15/2 which should have some appeal. Southampton are now on a three match winning streak in the top flight after having won one of their previous eight. They have kept clean sheets in their last three and each of their last six Premier League wins this season have been to nil.
Who will win – Arsenal v Southampton Predictions
The Saints put Arsenal to the sword on Boxing Day and they would damage the Gunners’ title challenge if they can beat them for a third time in a row. They have won three and lost only one of their last five against the Gunners so expect this one to be close in North London. The Saints are doing better and could be good enough to take a point away from their visit to the Emirates.
