Unai Emery gets the chance to exact revenge on the side that ended his run of 22 unbeaten games in charge of Arsenal as relegation threatened Southampton head to North London.


Southampton may find themselves encamped in the relegation zone, but since Austrian Ralph Hasenhüttl took over the reins at the beginning of December, there is a distinct glimmer of hope the Saints can get themselves out of the mire.

Four Premier League wins have followed since including the win that halted Arsenal’s remarkable 22 match unbeaten run, which stretched from August to December.

Despite this, Hasenhüttl has found that life in England’s top flight is a tough beast to tame with his side one point adrift of safety.

It looks like life will get a little tougher still for the Saints as the Gunners have only lost once at home this season in the Premier League, which understandably makes them the smart bet with the famous betting sites to get the job done.

To further compound Southampton’s misery, you have to go back to 1987 for the last time the Saints recorded a league victory at Arsenal, although they have recorded a couple of League Cup wins at the Emirates, in 2014 and 2016.

Backing the home side makes complete sense but Southampton will make a go of it as they have only failed to score twice under Hasenhüttl in all competitions.

Arsenal to win 2-1 is the prediction for this one to leave the Gunners nipping at the heels of the big boys.

Head to Head

As mentioned above, Southampton recorded an impressive 3-2 win over the Gunners in the reverse fixture back in December.

However, on Arsenal soil, Southampton’s story is not so rosy. No win in the Premier League era for the Saints at the Gunners poses a real problem in their fight to avoid relegation with Arsenal recording a 3-2 victory the last time the Southampton visited the Emirates.

Overall, Arsenal have recorded 49 wins over their opponents, with Southampton recording 21 victories and a total of 26 draws in all competitions.


  • Southampton ended Arsenal’s run of 22 matches without defeat with a 3-2 win back in December.
  • Arsenal have not lost a league home fixture to Southampton since 1987.
  • Southampton have collected just as many points on the road this season as at home (12).
  • The last time Arsenal midfielder Henrikh Mkhitaryan scored a goal for Arsenal was against Southampton
  • The sides first ever met during a 1927 FA Cup match which Arsenal won 2-1.
