Match Preview of Arsenal vs Southampton

Aiming to avoid another miserable trip to St Mary's and record a ninth win on the bounce in all tournaments, Arsenal make the journey to Southampton for Sunday's Premier League match.

Both sides prevailed by 1-0 scorelines in midweek, with the Saints overcoming Bournemouth on the South Coast while the Gunners got the better of PSV Eindhoven in the Europa League.

While a lot of the pre-match talk on social media centred around whether Bournemouth vs. Southampton can indeed be classed as a derby, Ralph Hasenhuttl's side did what they needed to do on the Vitality Stadium turf to end their dampening winless run.

Che Adams was on hand to meet Romain Perraud's inch-perfect cross and head home the opener with just nine minutes on the clock, and the Saints defence held firm for the remaining 81 minutes, although Mohammed Salisu was required to make a vital goal-line clearance in the second half.

Victory at the Vitality snapped a five-game winless run for Southampton, but Ralph Hasenhuttl undoubtedly remains a man under immense pressure, despite leading his side all the way up to 14th in the table, with a two-point gap now separating them from the relegation places.

Our Predicted Lineups

Arsenal possible starting lineup:Ramsdale; White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu; Xhaka, Partey; Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli; Jesus

Southampton possible starting lineup: starting lineup:Bazunu; Lyanco, Salisu, Caleta-Car; Elyounoussi, Ward-Prowse, S. Armstrong, Diallo, Perraud; Aribo, Adams

Who will win the match?

We say: Arsenal 1-0 Southampton. Discontent is still alive at St Mary's even after their win over Bournemouth, who have been no pushovers in Gary O'Neil's tenure, and the absence a recognised right-back will have Gabriel Martinelli licking his lips.
