Southampton vs Arsenal Betting Predictions and Odds
Are the Gunners still harmless abroad?
For Arsenal London, things haven’t really been going well since the Premier League resumed. The Gunners conceded the first two league tops under Mikel Arteta last week, so the optimism about a possible season finish among the top five teams has vanished again. On Thursday evening, the Gunners’ 31st matchday in the Premier League will increase.
Mikel Arteta’s team is visiting Southampton’s relegation team. In contrast to the Gunners, the Saints made a successful comeback in the Premier League and scored three important points in the relegation battle against the bottom of the table in Norwich City. It is quite possible that the next points will be scored against the weakened arsenal.
As the odds comparison of the betting base shows, Southampton vs. Arsenal not a clear favorite according to odds. However, a prediction for a point win by the Saints does not seem to be wrong, especially since the Gunners abroad have not yet performed well. In the 15 away games of the current season there were only two away wins for Arsenal.
The Saints don’t exactly have the best record at St. Mary’s Stadium at home, but compared to the Gunners they are largely in the best line-up. Southampton have already scored against Arsenal in the first half of the season – bet it will work on Thursday evening?
Southampton – Statistics & current form
The Saints want to stay away from relegation places. Last matchday Southampton had a big point in the struggle for relegation with their away win at Norwich. Considering how many relegation competitors left points last weekend, the three points were of immense importance to the Saints.
Losing streak at St. Mary’s?
At home, the next points should be taken on Thursday evening. Ralph Hasenhüttl and his team will have to end the losing streak in St. Mary’s. In the 15 home games of the current season there were only 14 points. This makes Southampton the worst home team in the Premier League.
The next home games will show whether the status of the Saints will change after the three-month break. With three points over the Gunners from London, Southampton can initially give the red lantern in the home table. The Saints also hit the 40-point mark in the Premier League.
Moussa Djenepo still blocked
Ralph Hasenhüttl will largely be able to draw on the full in the home game against Arsenal. Shane Long will be operational again after his recent injury. Moussa Djenepo will still have to pause before the season break after being sent off. After the strong performance on the previous game day, it would not be wrong if Ralph Hasenhüttl again bet on the same starting eleven.
After all, the Saints scored three goals and could even keep the white vest. Southampton won a match for the seventh time this PL season without conceding a goal. Odd statistics, considering that the Saints have conceded 52 goals in 30 PL games.
Probable line-up of Southampton:
↳ McCarthy – Bertrand, Bednarek, Stephens, Valery – Redmond, Höjbjerg, Ward-Prowse, Armstrong – Ings, Obafemi

Arsenal – Statistics & current form
Mikel Arteta should lead Arsenal back on the road to success. After the former Gunners player had been Pep Guardiola’s assistant coach for almost three years, Arteta took on a professional club with Arsenal London in December last year. Since then, the Gunners have shown very good approaches under the new trainer.
Fall back in time?
Last week, the Spaniard’s first PL defeat as a coach for the Gunners. As expected, the Citizens from Manchester prevailed in a match between apprentice Arteta and teacher Guardiola. Arsenal were inferior throughout the game and did not score a single shot on the opposing goal.
Last weekend the Gunners went bust again. It was a balanced match for a long time before Arsenal took a 1-0 lead against Brighton in the 68th minute. The Seagulls turned up in the final quarter of an hour and scored two goals to make it 2-1. This continues the Gunners’ weakness away from home.
Rather harmless in a foreign country
In the 15 away games of the current PL season, Arsenal London only had two away wins. The Gunners last scored three points in the Premier League on December 9th in the London derby against West Ham. Since then there have been five draws and two defeats. With a total of eight point divisions, the Gunners are the draw kings abroad.
It is quite possible that the maximum points will be missed in the upcoming away game. Mikel Arteta will have a total of eight failures on Thursday evening. The defensive restrictions are particularly serious. There are five defenders missing with Mari, Luiz, Sokratis, Soares and Chambers.
In the defensive midfield, however, Lucas Torreira and Granit Xhaka still have to pause. Keeper Bernd Leno also injured himself on the last match day and may well be out longer. It is not yet clear how Arteta will cope with the personnel misery. Should the Gunners win on Thursday evening, Southampton vs. Arsenal odds of 2.75 paid for tip 2.
Arsenal probable lineup:
↳ Martinez – Kolasinac, Holding, Mustafi, Bellerin – Ceballos, Guendouzi, Saka – Aubameyang, Lacazette, Pepe
Last games from Arsenal:
