Southampton host Arsenal on Saturday afternoon with a place in the fifth round of the FA Cup up for grabs.

After a rocky first half of the season, holders Arsenal have now won five of their last six games with Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang back on the score sheet on Monday against Newcastle with two goals.

The Gunners skipper netted a brace against both Manchester City and Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final and final last season and is currently priced at 14/1 with Sky Bet to do it again at Southampton this afternoon.

When Aubameyang has struggled this season, Alexandre Lacazette has stepped up with seven goals. The Frenchman has had 25 shots on goal this term, hitting the target with 72 per cent of them – the best return in the squad. This afternoon you can get him at 21/10 to register 2+ shots on target or 13/2 to get 3+.

The last time Arsenal faced Southampton in the FA Cup, the Saints were on the wrong end of a 5-0 defeat with Theo Walcott netting a hat-trick. Now back where it all began, the former Gunner will be looking to punish his former side and is priced at 14/5 to score anytime for Southampton this afternoon.

Given the form of both sides we could be in for a tight affair this afternoon – odds of 11/2 are available on this going all the way to penalties.
