Southampton vs Arsenal: prediction, kick-off time, TV, live stream, team news, h2h results – preview today
rsenal need a change of momentum today as they travel to Southampton shortly after Tottenham’s first four rivals host Brighton in the Premier League.
Having lost two games on the spin and injured key players, the pressure is on Mikel Arteta as the Gunners’ bid for that final Champions League spot fails.
As much progress as his young side have made this season, being beaten to fourth place by rivals Spurs – who face Brighton in Saturday’s midday kick-off – would be a hugely disappointing end to what looked like a breakthrough campaign for the Artet Project.
Arsenal’s visit to Southampton – who were beaten 6-0 by Chelsea last time out – comes ahead of a nightmarish run in which they face Thomas Tuchel’s side Manchester United and West Ham, making three points on the south coast extremely important.

Southampton vs Arsenal Prediction
Arsenal could catch Southampton at the wrong time. With Saints already staring down the beach ahead of the Chelsea game, how this result should elicit some sort of reaction from a team that, while capable of losing by such huge margins, boasts of quality of his day.
