Arsenal face a make-or-break Christmas period that could define Mikel Arteta’s reign at the Emirates, starting with a week of Premier League games on Amazon Prime Video.
The Gunners take on Southampton in what could be one of the toughest Premier League fixtures at this stage of the season with the Saints marching on up the table at the weekend.
Arteta’s men fell to a dismal 1-0 defeat at home to struggling Burnley and currently occupy 15th spot in the table, a world away from where fans expect them to be.
On the other hand, Southampton have clambered up to the giddy heights of fourth following an impressive 3-0 battering of Sheffield United at the weekend.
Ralph Hassenhuttl’s men sit two points adrift of league leaders Tottenham going into the festive period and will hope to keep the form flowing.

Arsenal v Southampton team news
Arsenal: Granit Xhaka is the chief absentee after picking up a three-match ban for an inexcusable red card at the weekend.
Hector Bellerin is also banned after collecting his fifth yellow card of the campaign, though Nicolas Pepe is back from his suspension. Dani Ceballos and Mohamed Elneny are expected to start in midfield given the continued absence of Thomas Partey.
Southampton: In 2020/21, this next sentence is a rare one indeed. Southampton have no injury concerns, no fitness worries and a full squad available for selection.
Luxuries like that will go a long way towards the Saints achieving their goals this term. Danny Ings’ return is particularly important for them.
Our prediction: Arsenal v Southampton
It’s The Cedric Soares derby! Well, it really isn’t, but we need to find some inviting aspect for Arsenal fans to tune in for.
Their outrage is justified, their season has rocked from shambles to shambles, and the worst part of the Burnley mess was that it was almost to be expected.
In Southampton, Arsenal are up against a cohesive, organised, well-drilled, attacking, confident crop of rising stars and hungry talents, everything the Gunners are not.
Southampton will win, and nobody will be shocked.
Our prediction: Arsenal 0-2 Southampton
