Southampton vs Arsenal Predictions

Southampton were worthy winners in the FA Cup fourth round on Saturday. A stronger Arsenal side is expected on Tuesday night and I'm tipping the Gunners to get a point from another tight game.

  • Southampton have seen under 2.5 goals in their last 8 matches (all competitions).
  • Southampton have seen BTTS No in their last 7 matches (all competitions).
  • Southampton have kept 5 clean sheets in their last 6 matches (all competitions).
  • Southampton have lost 1 of their last 4 matches against Arsenal (all competitions).
  • Arsenal have kept 5 clean sheets in their last 6 matches (all competitions).
  • Arsenal have seen BTTS No in their last 6 matches (all competitions).

Head to Head

Arsenal have won 51 times against Southampton, who recorded their 22nd victory over the Gunners on Saturday. There have also been 28 draws.

A Gabriel own goal was the difference between the two sides in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday as Southampton won 1-0.

Southampton Form

Southampton made it three wins in their last four games when defeating Arsenal 1-0 in the FA Cup at the weekend. A Gabriel own goal was the only one of the game.

That followed a 1-0 win over Liverpool in the Premier League and a 2-0 victory over Shrewsbury in their delayed third round fixture.

Sandwiched in between those two wins was a 2-0 defeat to Leicester in the Premier League

It has been a profitable period for the Saints, who have lost twice in their last 10 games since the start of December.

Southampton Team News

Striker Danny Ings made his return from COVID-19 on Saturday and is in line for his Premier League comeback.

Midfielder Oriol Romeu and centre-back Mohamed Salisu are approaching returns from injury, but may not be risked. 

Southampton's injury list still includes Nathan Tella, Michael Obafemi, Will Smallbone, Moussa Djenepo, Nathan Redmond and Jannik Vestergaard.

Arsenal Form

Arsenal's unbeaten six-game run came to an end in Saturday's disappointing loss at St Mary's as the defending champions exited the FA Cup.

Mikel Arteta opted to field a weakened side in that game and it didn't pay dividends despite the Gunners dominating with 62% possession.

The Gunners have won four of their previous six games with victories over Chelsea, Brighton, West Brom and Newcastle.

They also drew 0-0 draw with Crystal Palace and finished goalless with Newcastle in the FA Cup third round before winning it in extra-time.

Arsenal Team News

Defender Pablo Mari is ruled out and both Dani Ceballos and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang are doubtful to feature. 

Kieren Tierney, Thomas Partey, Bukayo Saka and Alexandre Lacazette were among those left out on the FA Cup tie. 

They should return with the likes of Gabriel Martinelli, Nicolas Pepe, Willian and Eddie Nketiah failing to impress.
