Head to head
The last three Premier League games between the two sides ended in one draw, one win to Southampton and one win to the Gunners. Looking at Arsenal’s form this Premier League season, we would expect a comfortable Arsenal win and for them to pick up the three points tonight.
Players to watch
Arsenal’s key man is undoubtedly Bukayo Saka. The youngster had a huge impact on Arsenal this season and contributed to their dramatic improvement which has seen them turn into title contenders.
Saka has 22 goal contributions this season in the Premier League, scoring twelve and assisting ten.
Southampton’s most important player has been their captain, James Ward Prowse.
The Englishman has had nine goal contributions for the Saints, scoring seven and assisting two. Arsenal will need to be wary of giving Southampton free kicks because he has the fantastic ability to score from dead-ball situations.
Newcastle's form under Eddie Howe
Since Eddie Howe arrived at the club in November 2021, Premier League fans have seen a drastic change in how Newcastle play. Eddie Howe took over when Newcastle were rock bottom of the Premier League, and he guided them to safety, finishing 11th in the league, 14 points above the relegation zone. Newcastle this season have impressed many people as no one would have expected them to be sitting in third and pushing for the Champions League places. Newcastle have won their last five Premier League games.
