Southampton vs Arsenal Live | English Premier League | Date: Sunday, 16 December 2018 | Kick-Off at 13:30 UK / 14:30 CET | Venue: St. Mary’s Stadium (Southampton)
Ralph Hasenhuttl made his unsuccessful début at the Southampton bank last weekend when the Saints lost 1-0 to his compatriot from the city of Cardiff in Welsh territory. The Bluebirds did not dominate the Saints on this occasion, but strikers Charlie Austin and Manolo Gabbiadini lacked determination and confidence to make a difference.
The German coach has arrived at a very difficult time because the hosts have fought so far this season. They are the only team in the league with less than two victories in 16 rounds. Both team have not found a pointer at home yet. They shot five and lost two of the seven cases so far. Southampton has had a particularly poor race since the end of November. They lost four and drew five against all competitions.
Southampton vs Arsenal: Face to face
- The gunners were the dominant force in the most recent clash against Southampton.
- They won three and made one of the last four clashes with the saints.
- Arsenal has scored 11 goals in the last four meetings with Southampton, including three at St Mary’s Stadium.
Southampton vs Arsenal: Prediction
The visitors flew high recently despite a tight schedule that allowed them to play the game between Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United three days earlier this month. The Gunners are unbeaten in the last 21 games in all competitions. The players seem to enjoy their time in the field under Unai Emery, who makes the most of this team.
Arsenal has scored two or more goals in four consecutive games, but they fought to break the deadlock on Saturday against Huddersfield Town in the Emirates. Finally, midfielder Lucas Torreira scored his second goal on Arsenal’s shirt with a magnificent goal for a free kick in the center of Aubameyang at the end of the game.
Looking at the recent form and the last record from head to head, we can not escape the Arsenal victory here. It is worth guaranteeing the odds of 1.90 offered for such a scenario.
Southampton vs Arsenal: Betting odds
- Arsenal wins by 1.90 (9/10)
- Arsenal with more than 1.5 goals of the team at 1.66 (4/6)
