Southampton vs Arsenal
English Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 10th May 2017
Kick off at 19:45 UK/ 20:45 CET
Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium.
Arsenal will come in the game in high spirits after seeing off Manchester United 2-0 at The Emirates on Sunday.
The victory will be completed in case of a success in the mid-week’s fixture with Southampton at St. Mary’s Stadium.
The Saints have been miles away from their best shape in the last couple of weeks. The team led by Claude Puel is winless in last four Premier League outings which kind of ruined a generally decent campaign they have had so far in the season.
On the bright side, the improvements in the back line could have clearly been noticed in the last two fixtures as the Saints kept consecutive clean sheets against Hull City and Liverpool in the last two rounds.
Arsene Wenger finally managed to celebrate his first ever win over Jose Mourinho in a highly important game for Arsenal.
The Gunners thus kept chances of making it to the top four at the end of the season, but three points from St. Mary’s are simply a must for the team.
Te victory would see Arsenal narrowing the gap to man City to three points ahead of three final games of the season.
Southampton vs Arsenal: Head to head
The Saints will be hoping to get the revenge for a painful 0-5 defeat from late January this year in the FA Cup.
Theo Walcott bagged a hat-trick, while Danny Welbeck (who was on target against Man United this weekend) scored a brace.
The Saints were more successful from the League Cup encounter, while Arsenal took a 2-1 win in Premier League’s clash at The Emirates.

The match will have a much greater significance for the visitors who will also come in the game in a better mood.
