Arsenal – Southampton : Preview & Prediction
Arsenal, deprived of victory since 4 days in the league, sees a great opportunity to put an end to this downward spiral in the face of a reluctant team from Southampton, who is also riding a very bad dynamic. The club London, won the podium (9 points), must make a series of victories to pick up the Big Four and find a good momentum. In the league, the Emery band remain on 2 draws at home against Cystal Palace (2-2) and Wolverhampton (1-1) then 2 defeats at Sheffield United (1-0) and Leicester City (2-0) at last 4 days. Undefeated at Emirates Stadium this season (6 wins and 3 draws), all competitions, the Gunners want to chew on a Southampton team also sick. The Saints are on a four-game losing streak against Leicester City (0-9), Manchester City (3-1 and 2-1) in the League Cup and Premier League, and ahead of Everton (1-2). Nothing goes for Saints who accumulate only 8 points in the general after 12 days! A new defeat this weekend would plunge Southampton into crisis.
