The Premier League is back in action this week with a new set of games, beginning on Friday when Mikel Arteta’s Arsenal team and Southampton square off at the Emirates Stadium in a pivotal contest.

Southampton vs. Arsenal: A Preview

Southampton has had a difficult start to this season and is currently anchored to the bottom of the Premier League standings. The away team will need to put in a lot of effort to recover from last week’s devastating 2-0 loss to Crystal Palace. Arsenal, on the other hand, is currently leading the league table and has performed admirably this year. Since West Ham United held the Gunners to a 2-2 draw in their previous match, they cannot afford to lose any points this week.

Southampton vs. Arsenal Prediction

Arsenal has been in excellent form lately and continues to be the favorite to win the Premier League. The Gunners need to make a statement in this match because they have stumbled in recent weeks.

Although Southampton has occasionally caused Arsenal problems, they have an especially bad track record at the Emirates Stadium. Arsenal is currently the superior team and clearly has the advantage going into this match.

Arsenal 3-1 Southampton is the prediction.
