Southampton take on Arsenal in a spicy Premier League clash live in front of the BT Sport cameras at St Mary’s tonight.


Despite a terrific start for the Saints and woeful opening spell for the Gunners, the teams’ fortunes have flipped in recent weeks and they are now separated by just two points.

Arsenal have enjoyed a five-game unbeaten streak in their recent Premier League fixtures and haven’t conceded in their last four.

However, Southampton may have the bit between their teeth for this one after defeating Arsenal in the FA Cup last time out at the weekend.

Boss Ralph Hassenhuttl’s team talk will be simple for this one: do it again.

Southampton v Arsenal team news

Southampton predicted XI: McCarthy, Valery, Bednarek, Stephens, Vokins, Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Diallo, Walcott, Adams, Ings.

Arsenal predicted XI: Leno, Bellerin, Holding, Luiz, Tierney, Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Smith Rowe, Martinelli, Lacazette.

Our prediction: Southampton v Arsenal

Both teams will believe they can win this one; they will see an opportunity to claw their way back into the brewing European dogfight.

Arsenal, who will be without Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang due to personal reasons, are likely to field a spritely, young line-up including Bukayo Saka, Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli, and that will please many fans.

On the other hand, Danny Ings is back in the fold for Southampton and is likely to be the man to lead the Saints back up the table. Expect a close, entertaining affair.

Our prediction: Southampton 1-1 Arsenal
