Football predictions for Southampton vs Arsenal
Southampton’s team accepts Arsenal in a 17th round of the Premier League. The duel will be played on Sunday, December 16, on St. Louis. Mary’s Stadium in Southampton, Hampshire.
Southampton performs poorly in the 2018/19 season. The Saints ranked 19th in the nine-point standings, standing at three points in the rescue zone. New team manager Ralph Hasenhuttl begun defeating last weekend against Cardiff City (0:1). So the hosts have no success in 14 consecutive matches in all the tournaments and it seems unlikely they will reach the victory against Arsenal this Sunday.
Southampton’s team is the third weakest host in the English Championship this season. The Saints have not won any of their seven home games by recording five draws and two losses. In their last home game, Southampton’s team made a 2:2 draw against Manchester United, and previously shared points with Watford and Newcastle United. Southampton lost only once in its past five home games – 0:3 in the Chelsea team. In his first home game Ralph Hasenhuttl could bring Southampton to the first win of St. Louis. Mary’s Stadium or will there be a new disappointment for The Saints?
The Arsenal team is on the fifth position in the standings with a total of 34 points and the fourth-placed Chelsea team. The Gunners played in the Europa League tournament on Thursday to beat Qarabag with a 1-0 draw on their own field and scored a second consecutive win with this result after last weekend with 1:0 over Huddersfield Town again at Emirates Stadium.
Unai Emery’s graduates are in very good shape, winning four of their last five matches in all the tournaments. London-based strikers Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette have scored a total of 16 goals in the Premier League and I think these two players will lead Arsenal to the success of St. Louis. Mary’s Stadium.
