Southampton Team News

Prior to the onset of the previous season, Southampton was without several key players such as Danny Ings, Jannik Vestergaard and Ryan Bertrand, therefore, were anticipated to be among the biggest relegation contender.

Nevertheless, Southampton stood firmly in the middle of the table during the whole season and secured their place in the company of the best easily. Previous to this season, they did not engage any big names to join their ranks but they brought several players who, perhaps, can contribute to remain in the company of the best this season without major difficulties.

Duje Ćaleta Car, Ainsley Maitland Niles, Joe Aribo, Romeo Lavia, Armel Bella Kotchap and Gavin Bazunu immediately took their place in the starting eleven and are playing at a high level for now. Southampton is currently on eleven points, they are out of the danger zone and except problems with creating scoring opportunities in a few games, they can be satisfied with the season onset.

Before this match, the Southampton team has some problems with absences. Valentino Livramento and Romeo Lavia have been out of action for some time. Armel Bella Kotchap was injured last weekend in meeting with West Ham while Kyle Walker Peters got injured in the middle of the week throughout meeting with Bournemouth, and in this match Ralph Hasenhuttl is unable to count on them either. Given that the three players of the last line are out of the machine in this match, it will certainly be a trouble, and apart from them, Ainsley Maitland Niles does not have the right to play either due to the loan agreement.

Arsenal Team News

The Arsenal team has been playing at a very high level since Arteta’s arrival on the bench. In the previous season, they played excellent football and were among the four best teams of the English Premier League for a long time, but after a slightly disappointing end of the season, they were left without participation in the Champions League.

In spite of of the great games during the previous season, few could have expected that Arsenal would be the first team in the English Premier League after 10 rounds. In the Premier League, Arsenal registered nine victories with a loss against Manchester United. In the Europa League, where they have maximum points after four rounds, an extraordinary football has been demonstrated.

Arsenal played a Europa League match against PSV in the middle of the week when Arteta rested most of the first team players which will certainly mean a lot in the incoming game. In addition, prior to this match, Arsenal has no major problems with injured players. Out of the machine are Mohamed Elneny and Emil Smith Rowe, who have been injured for some time and are not starters while Oleksandr Zinchenko has recovered and could be seen again today in Arsenal’s lineup.

H2H

  • In the last four visits to St. Mary’s Stadium, Arsenal registered two victories.
  • In the last eight matches between them, Arsenal registered four victories, Southampton two, while the last four visits to St. Mary’s ended without a winner.

Southampton vs. Arsenal Prediction

Southampton is a team whose quality is in the lower half of the Premier League. Preceding this match, they have problems with absences, especially in the last line, while Arsenal has looked fantastic since the beginning of the season and it is to be expected that in this match they will dominate in the middle, create more goal opportunities and register another victory.
