ARSENAL VS SOUTHAMPTON PREDICTION: TEAM COMPARISON & TIPS
From the bottom group of the table after the first 3 rounds, Arsenal revived strongly and climbed to 7th place in one circuit. The last period has witnessed the stable performance of Arteta’s students, with fast gameplay but also full of pragmatism. In the last 12 rounds, the Gunners brought 7 victories, scored 18 goals but only conceded 13 times. Success is built on a solid defense, not only that, but Arsenal also owns the best home record in the Premier League. In the last 8 matches at Emirates, Arsenal won 7 victories and only divided 1 point, of which the last 3 matches kept a clean sheet. The tight match and the willingness to punish the opponent’s mistakes will still be the image of Arsenal in the upcoming battle.
Southampton still shows the erratic form as in recent seasons. In 15 rounds, Hasenhuttl’s army only won 3 but received 5 defeats, 4 of which were away. The new attack has 14 goals from the beginning of the season, 7 trips the strikers scored exactly 6 goals. The deadlocked play is reflected in the 1-1 draw with Brighton or the recent defeat against Norwich. After what Hasenhuttl’s students showed, it is difficult to expect a table. The bright spot is a rather annoying defensive play that has conceded 21 times, the best statistic among the teams in the bottom half of the table. Southampton will have to focus on the defensive front and aim for 1 point.
The somewhat pragmatic gameplay of the two teams often brings tactical battles. 3/4 of the last encounter ended with the score under, Arsenal’s 3 consecutive home matches did not have more than 2 goals.
Select: Under 2.75 FT.
Continuous advancement on the rankings brings good psychology to the Gunners. They also dominate in terms of head-to-head record with 3 victories and an unbeaten record in the last 5 encounters in the Premier League. This is clearly an opportunity for Arsenal to take all 3 points and continue to improve their position.
Arteta’s students are in extremely high form at the Emirates with 7 wins and 8 consecutive unbeaten matches. In the measure, there were jubilant victories 3-1 against both Tottenham and Aston. In contrast, Southampton still showed erratic, 4 consecutive matches only drawn and lost, including 2 trips, both leaving empty-handed before even Norwich. The difference in power correlation, the convincing victory of the Gunners is a wise choice.
Select: Arsenal FT.
European odds greatly appreciate the possibility of Arsenal winning. This choice is undisputed with the superior strength and home-field advantage of Arteta’s students. Southampton has to march away from home and is in poor form, hard to surprise.
Select: Arsenal FT.
