Arsenal on the other hand are coming on the back of a 6 match unbeaten run, with 5 of them being wins. There is no doubt that they are a team in good spirits. And they have scored at least a goal in each of their last 10 games in all competitions. But it was against Southampton they last failed, on November 2016 when they were knocked out from the League Cup competition with a 2-0 loss.

Southampton vs Arsenal: Head-to-head stats

Arsenal are yet to register a win at the St. Mary’s since 2003. Their last two visits ended in defeats without scoring, with the previous three seeing stalemates.

The recent head-to-head record across all venues will also boost the morale of Southampton players. The Saints have won in three of the last five meetings against Arsenal in all competition, along with a draw and a defeat.

The most recent meeting between the two sides was in the League Cup fixture at the Emirates Stadium, which ended in 2-0 win for the Saints.

Southampton vs Arsenal: Prediction

The Saints have enjoyed considerable success against Arsenal in recent meetings. It remained to be seen if they can fight against the fatigue as this is their 6th fixture in 15 days. On the merit of the form, our main pick of the match is for Southampton to avoid a defeat here. So, an Asian handicap of +0.5 will do the trick.
