England – Premier League
Date: Saturday, 23 November 2019
Kick-off at 15:00 UK / 16:00 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
Unai Emery is certainly feeling the heat from the Arsenal faithful, for the lack of wins that his squad have been delivering. Nevertheless, with Southampton hardly proving to be a threat in their recent games, the Gunners should feel confident in securing all three points in front of the home crowd.

Arsenal vs Southampton Prediction
Arsenal succumbed to their third defeat of the season, prior to the international break, after Leicester City brushed past them with a 2-0 victory. The hosts are now without a win in their last three Premier League games. And have garnered no more than two points from a possible nine in the process.
However, Arsenal have been a tough bunch to take down on home soil and are one of the only three teams that are yet to taste defeat at home.
On the other hand, things have been going downhill for Southampton who were at the losing end of a 2-1 scorecard against Everton in their last matchup, that too at home. The visitors have now failed to pick up any points for the third consecutive week as well.
It is also worth mentioning that with eight defeats to their name, the away side are currently just one point shy of hitting rock bottom on the ladder. Furthermore, the Saints have failed to secure the bragging rights in their last two trips to the Emirates Stadium in a running.
With home advantage working its charm just fine for the hosts this season, Southampton can rule out of any possibilities of securing all three points in this one.
In addition, Arsenal’s backline have been far too easy to breach so far, and have just one clean sheet to boast of, from their last six Premier League games here. Meanwhile, the visitors have been consistent in getting their names on the score sheet in their last five outings in the topflight.
Taking into account that half of their previous four h2h matchups here have also witnessed both teams find the back of the net together, expect goals down each end without fail this weekend.
