The Gunners have been inconsistent in recent times, with swashbuckling victories against lower ranked opposition coupled with usual struggles against their top 4 rivals.

Arsenal vs Southampton Preview and Livestream

Many expected Arsenal to fall into a pit of despair following their worst start to a season ever since their inception 118 years ago. However, the Gunners have made steady progress since, with key players returning from injury providing a timely boost to their European ambitions. However, they looked to have slipped back to their old ways in recent performances against Liverpool and Manchester United, raising question marks over the quality of their squad yet again. One positive from this season has been their impressive home form, and Mikel Arteta will hope this clash against Southampton will provide the opportunity to silence his critics in the best possible way, with a resounding victory.

Southampton have been just as inconsistent as their opponents this weekend and Ralph Hasenhüttl will be hoping to avoid getting sucked into a relegation scrap early into the season. A key factor in their lackluster performances this season has been a lack of cutting edge up front, where they have sorely missed Danny Ings. Yet so, the Saints will hope the recent rise to prominence of young Chelsea loanee Armando Broja will help them bag a notable result at the Emirates this weekend.

Arsenal vs Southampton Team News

The loss of Bernd Leno to a short-term injury will not be as concerning to Mikel Arteta with Aaron Ramsdale having pretty much established himself as the Arsenal number one this season. However, young star Emile Smith-Rowe is doubtful for the game having picked up a knock in the previous match. Sead Kolašinac and Granit Xhaka remain the only long-term absentees in an otherwise full strength Arsenal squad.

Arsenal vs Southampton Prediction

Despite recent results suggesting otherwise, we believe Arsenal will have too much for this underperforming Southampton side to handle. They have shown their quality against bottom half teams and we expect them to put the Saints to the sword at the Emirates, boosting their hopes for a European place in a comfortable 2-0 victory.
