Southampton vs Arsenal Preview

The congestive EPL festive fixtures continue and Arsenal will be hosted by Southampton on the New Year’s Day. The Gunners will hope to leapfrog the Saints in the race for fourth spot.

Arsenal will travel to the South Coast without the suspended Oliver Giroud. Arsene Wenger has also revealed that Welbeck faces a late fitness test. He however confirmed that Walcott is fit enough to earn a start. The Saints will miss the services of Morgan Schneiderlin who was suspended in the last clash with Chelsea.

The Saints will be confident in this tie as they have avoided a defeat in the previous three ties with Arsenal at the St. Mary’s Stadium. The Saints have also lost only 2 points form a winning position this season. The Gunners, however, have not lost to the Saints in an EPL tie since 2002.

Good Luck to the Gunners.
