Southampton v Arsenal Premier League Preview, 16th December 1.30pm
Southampton are still having a rough time of things and lost last weekend against Cardiff in Ralph Hasenhuttl’s first game in charge. There’s a lot of work for the new boss to do. A game against an Arsenal side who are unbeaten in fourteen league games probably isn’t going to help their fight against survival at the moment. Read our Southampton v Arsenal betting tips for more.

Southampton News and Form
Southampton’s miserable season continued as they suffered a defeat against Cardiff last weekend. Not the greatest of starts then for new manager Ralph Hasenhuttl. That is back to back defeats that the Saints have lost now in the top flight and it extended their winless streak to twelve in the top flight. There has been no home win still for Southampton all season in the EPL, having posted a D5 L2 record at St Mary’s. They are unbeaten in their last three home games though (D1). In total, they have managed only six goals in seven games at St Mary’s this term which is a poor return.
57% of their league home games have gone over 2.5 goals, their lack of scoring playing their part in that. The Saints have failed to score in 43% of their home games. There has been no clean sheet for Southampton in any of their last six games in the top flight (home and away combined). They have shipped 70% of their home goals after the halftime break. Only one side has scored fewer goals in this season’s EPL than Southampton (Huddersfield). No side has earned fewer home points than Southampton have managed.
Southampton v Arsenal Head to Head
Arsenal took four points from the two EPL meetings with the Saints last season
Arsenal are unbeaten in five EPL games against Southampton (W3 D2)

Arsenal News and Form
The Gunners edged a 1-0 win at home against Huddersfield last weekend in what proved to be a tougher challenge than expected against the Terriers. That extended their unbeaten form to fourteen league matches. The Gunners have put up numbers of W4 D2 L1 record away from home in this season’s top flight and are undefeated in their last six on the road. In their last away game, they played out a 2-2 draw at Old Trafford against Manchester United. In their away games they have scored 18 and have conceded 12.
All of their away games have gone over 2.5 goals and actually, 71% of Arsenal’s away games this season have gone over 3.5 goals. There has been no clean sheet for the Gunners away from home in the EPL this season and they have actually conceded in both halves in 57% of road games. The one big surprising stat surrounding Arsenal this season is that in no game have they been leading at half-time (D12 L4). They have scored in each of their last 15 league games and have netted at least two goals in all away games this term. 12 of their 18 away goals have been scored after the halftime break

Who will win – Southampton v Arsenal Predictions
It doesn’t really look like a game that Arsenal should be losing at the moment at all. They have the form of the two and there are still big defensive cracks in the Southampton back line. Arsenal can expose that. Arsenal to win & both teams to score.
