Southampton vs Arsenal: Predictions
Southampton were the victors in the weekend’s game between these two sides, beating Arsenal 1-0 to knock the holders out of the FA Cup. It continues Southampton’s return to winning ways after a brief slump, with the Saints now victorious in three of their past four games across all competitions, including a 1-0 win over Liverpool in the Premier League.
But two of those wins did come in the FA Cup and, in the league, Southampton remain slightly behind the pack for a European spot. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men are currently 10th in the table, five points behind fourth-placed Liverpool, a fall considering Southampton had led the table at points early in the campaign. However, Southampton do have a game in hand and will remain optimistic of their European chances.
One place and two points behind Southampton are Arsenal, who have enjoyed a revival in 2021 despite being knocked out of the FA Cup. The defeat to Southampton at the weekend was Arsenal’s first in seven games since a 4-1 loss to Man City in the Carabao Cup.
That run, which included four wins in the Premier League, has pulled Arsenal away from any danger and back into the fight for European football. It has also eased pressure on Mikel Arteta, whose position had been thrown into doubt during a seven-game winless run in the league that had them as low as 15th.

Southampton vs Arsenal: Match Stats
Pierre-Emerick Aubamayeng appears to have re-found his goalscoring touch at just the right time for Arsenal, netting twice in the Gunners’ 3-0 win over Newcastle last week. Prior to that game, the Gabonese striker had scored just three in his first 16 Premier League appearances of the season, truly suffering from being played on the wing (though he does remain there).
However, Southampton will have the momentum going into Tuesday’s game off the back of their FA Cup win and have already beat Liverpool at St Mary’s in the Premier League this season, proving a tough team to beat.
23 January 2021 – Southampton 1-0 Arsenal – FA Cup

Southampton’s 1-0 win over Arsenal at the weekend ended their recent poor run against the Gunners, which had seen them without a victory in four games. However, just one of those four games came at home and Saints have beat Arsenal in two of the past four meetings at St Mary’s, with one draw.
