Matchday: Team News – Predicted Lineup – Betting Preview
Match: Arsenal v Southampton
Stadium: Emirates Stadium
Kick Off (GMT): Sat 10th Sep 15.00
Arsenal have a relatively poor recent record against Southampton. The Gunners have won just one of the last six meetings between the two teams in all competitions. Arsenal’s record at home is far better. The Saints haven’t beaten the Gunners away in the league since 1987 and the home fans will want that to continue.

As previously mentioned, Arsenal’s two new signings could feature at the Emirates. However, The Gunners could be without Alexis Sanchez. The Chilean played for his country in midweek and Arsene Wenger was unsure if he will be fit enough for the match. Arsenal play PSG in the week and he could be rested for that. Also expected to miss out is Aaron Ramsey who has not yet recovered from his injury
