Southampton continued their miserable run of recent form last weekend going down to a 6-0 home loss to Chelsea finding themselves four down in 31 minutes. Arsenal also continued to slump suffering a 2-1 home loss to Brighton.

With 12 points between them and Burnley the Saints should have no relegation issues but have taken just one point from their last five. The Gunners find themselves behind Tottenham in the Champions League race having lost back-to-back league games.

At St Mary’s, the hosts have struggled lately losing each of their last three and winning just three of ten. On the road, the North-London outfit have won five of their last six but did lose their last away game at Palace-

Four of the last five Southampton matches have gone over 2.5 goals and produced a total of 18 goals. Five of the last eight including each of their last two for Arsenal have also gone over.

Che Adams and James Ward-Prowse are the leading scorers for the South Coast side with seven goals each while Armando Broja has six. For their opponents it is Bakayo Saka and Emile Smith-Rowe who lead the way with nine goals each.

Southampton vs Arsenal: Match Stats

Goals tend to be a feature of Southampton games with the last five producing 18 goals in total. Two of their last three Premier League home matches have seen both teams score and over 2.5 goals (the other was a 6-0 loss to Chelsea) and that looks a good bet here.

Mikel Arteta got his tactics badly wrong last weekend by fielding five attacking players in the middle. One player who struggled because of this was Albert Sami Lokonga who was over-worked in the middle and was booked and looks a good price to be carded here.
