Southampton vs Arsenal Betting Tips

Arsenal will be looking to end their losing run and jump back into the top half of the table when travel to Southampton this Thursday night.

The Gunners have lost two straight games since the Premier League season resumed. A 3-0 defeat at the hands of Manchester City was followed by a surprise 2-1 loss to relegation threatened Brighton.

With the team out of form and the list of unavailable players growing, the pressure is firmly on Mikel Arteta to try and turn things around.

Southampton, on the other hand, will see this as an opportunity. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s side have only played one game since the league restarted and that saw Saints claim a 3-0 away win over Norwich.

The three points they earned saw Southampton climb to 14th in the table and create a ten-point gap between them and the relegation zone.

With less pressure on their shoulders and a weak Arsenal side standing in front of them, it’s no surprise to see that the bookmakers have priced the hosts at 8/5.

To add to Arsenal’s woes, their record away at the St. Mary’s Stadium isn’t great with only two wins from nine games. Perhaps their only saving grace is the fact that Southampton haven’t exactly performed at their best when competing at their home ground.

Saints have won just one of their last five competitive home games and what’s more, they boast the worst home record in the Premier League this season.

Nevertheless, due to the current circumstances, due to the weak form of the visitors and due to the impressive Southampton performance at the weekend, our recommendation is to back the hosts to keep all three points at the south coast.

    Young Gunners grab the goals as Arsenal punish Alex McCarthy errors

    Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy endured a night to forget as Arsenal returned to winning ways with victory over 10-man Saints.

    The Gunners had lost their previous two games since the return of the Premier League but a goal apiece for Eddie Nketiah and Joe Willock earned Mikel Arteta’s side a 2-0 victory at St Mary’s.

    McCarthy gifted Nketiah the ball for the opener and, after Jack Stephens was dismissed for a late foul on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, he failed to hold an Alexandre Lacazette strike as Willock gobbled up the chance.

    Having lost at Manchester City and Brighton since the resumption of the season, the three points were enough to take Arsenal back into the top-half.

    Midfielder Matteo Guendouzi surprisingly escaped Football Association punishment having grabbed Brighton match-winner Neal Maupay by the throat at full-time of their last contest – but he was not included in Arteta’s 20-man squad here as the Spanish coach picked up his first Premier League away win as manager.

    After an even start, there appeared to be no danger for the hosts as Jan Bednarek rolled a pass back to goalkeeper McCarthy – but Nketiah showed the type of desire called for by his manager by chasing it down.

     

    His tenacity paid dividends as McCarthy hit his clearance straight at the striker, who was left to roll the ball into an empty net.

    The rest of the first half played out without much incident, although Nketiah came close to stealing the ball from McCarthy again, the England international this time relieved to hear the referee’s whistle deem he had been fouled.

    Southampton looked sharper after the interval as Ralph Hasenhuttl introduced Kyle Walker-Peters and Shane Long from the bench.

    Skipper James Ward-Prowse bent well over the bar from a position where he would usually be expected to do much better.

    Arsenal would come close to doubling their lead soon after as Emiliano Martinez’s kick found Aubameyang, whose close-control allowed him to cross low, with Bednarek diverting the ball inches wide of his own goal.

    The visitors were operating on the break more regularly and Hector Bellerin saw a fizzing effort blocked after the ball had fallen kindly to him inside the box.

    In an increasingly end-to-end contest Danny Ings flashed a half-chance well wide with Stuart Armstrong also unable to test Martinez with a curling effort over the bar.

    Martinez was finally called into meaningful action with 12 minutes remaining as he got down low to push away Long’s shot.

    But Southampton’s push for an equaliser was hit as Stephens was shown a red card for bringing down Aubameyang as the Arsenal skipper ran through on goal.

    The result was secured from the resulting free-kick, substitute Lacazette hitting the wall before his follow up was fumbled by McCarthy and allowed Willock to tuck away his maiden Premier League goal.

    Nketiah said Arsenal had “fought and worked hard” to see off Saints.

    He told Sky Sports: “I think it was a very important three points.

    “We knew we had to roll our sleeves up and really fight for the three points and hopefully we can build on this and keep pushing forwards.

    “It was difficult, they came out really strong in the second half and I thought all the boys fought and worked hard. It’s really hard in the heat to keep going but I think we did that.”

    He added: “Luckily at the end we were able to wrap it up and add a bit of gloss to the scoreline.”

    On his goal, Nketiah said: “We work a lot on our high press and I think we did it well today, and for me personally I try and give it all to the team. I could just tell, a bit of uncertainty from the goalkeeper and I just kept pulling in.

    “I’ve done that about 100 times so it’s nice that one of them turned into a goal.”
