Southampton vs Arsenal Prediction and Betting Preview 25 June 2020

The Match Is Over. Score: 0-2
Southampton vs Arsenal PredictionArsenal… where exactly do we start from now? This side have turned a complete shadow of the Gunners’ squad that went invincible in 2004, lifting the golden Premier League trophy – the only side to have ever achieved that feat.
Match status: 2019/20 Premier League - Matchweek 31
Venue: St. Mary's Stadium (Southampton)
Following their successes in the early 2000s, Arsenal seem to have lost their magic touch. Already inferiors to the Premier League elite clubs, you would have to rewind a couple of years back to pin-point a particular resounding Arsenal win against any of the league’s top guns.

A bewildered side, they have turned a subject of ridicule in the league with so many humiliating notable defeats of note. Chief of those would be then-Sir Alex Ferguson led Manchester United hammering them 8-2 in 2012. That defeat is one that the Gunners’ supporters will not forget in a hurry.

Now, with former player Mikel Arteta installed as the new manager, there is a new sense of belief at the club. They have fared pretty brilliantly since his appointment. However, following the league restart, they have been condemned to two consecutive losses.

With a game against struggling Southampton on the horizon, the question on everyone’s mind is “Can this Arsenal side finally rediscover their long-lost groove?”

Southampton vs Arsenal Team News

Having been humiliated by arch-rivals Manchester City. Oh shit… Freudian Slip! …by a much more superior City outfit two games ago, the Gunners looked to make amends when they took on mid-table outfit Brighton in a fiercely-contested affair at the Falmer Stadium.

Not so surprisingly, Brighton were touted slight favorites for the win. Yes, that is how awful Arsenal have been recently. Headed into the game as underdogs, they managed to match the Seagulls toe-to-toe as both teams went all out for the win.

With Pepe giving Arsenal the lead in the 68th minute, Brighton showed character to come from behind to register a narrow 2-1 win over the Gunners. The Seagulls headed home all smiles with the three points safely stashed in the bag.

Southampton, on the other hand, sealed a comfortable 3-0 away win over basement club Norwich City – nothing less than the fans expected. Rampant all through the game, Ings, Armstrong and Redmond got on the scoresheet to clinch maximum points for the Saints.

For this fixture, both sides really have nothing left to fight for. With a European place far from reach and relegation not even in the picture, both sides will likely be tussling for bragging rights here. Also, they will fancy their chances of laying their hands on all three points, if possible.
Definitely, these sides will be taking risks here, going all out for the win. I mean, what do they even have to lose? Absolutely nothing. 

The Southampton board will be happy to have stuck with Ralph Hasenhuttl earlier in the campaign even when things were looking bleak. Now, the faith shown in the Austrian gaffer has yielded fruits.

Even with European football looking out of reach, the Gunners will be hoping to pull off a miracle to seal continental qualification come the end of the season. Surely, they cannot tie Gabonese striker Aubameyang down to a permanent deal without European football in the bag.

Southampton vs Arsenal Predictions

A lot has been stressed regarding Arsenal’s recent horrendous form. However, it goes without saying that they possess some of the Premier League’s best players within their ranks – ones capable of changing the whole complexion of a game singlehandedly.

However, we cannot back them for an outright win considering their inconsistent nature. As such, the safest punt will be a double chance tipping the away side for a narrow win.
