What Trueform says for Arsenal vs Southampton
Arsenal have got back on track in their last couple of Premier League games and should be too strong for Southampton if in the same mood here.
This match does come in between two Europa League fixtures against CSKA Moscow, but Arsene Wenger has the resources to freshen things up if required.
A Look At Arsenal’s Betting Odds
Arsenal took a long time to get going when beating Stoke 3-0 last Sunday and were fortunate to receive a 75th-minute kick-start in the shape of a controversial penalty.
However, two goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and another spot-kick for Alexandre Lacazette ultimately earned the Gunners maximum points.
“Sometimes it’s like that after an international break, it takes 45 minutes to blow the cobwebs off,” said Jack Wilshere.
“I think in the second half we tried to up it and as the game went on, they got tired and our attacking play was too much for them.”
Aubameyang had also netted in a 3-0 defeat of Watford but is ineligible for European action, so he will be fired up to make an impact again in this encounter.
Looking at the Arsenal vs Southampton odds, 5/4 for the hosts to oblige by more than one goal is another solid option.
A Look At Southampton’s Betting Odds
Southampton beat Wigan in the FA Cup to give Mark Hughes a dream start as manager but the honeymoon period soon ended as they were crushed 3-0 at West Ham in this competition.
Hughes moaned: “I’m disappointed to say the least, that wasn’t what we anticipated in terms of performance.
“We conceded three very poor goals, there were some catastrophic errors which have been prevalent for some time and clearly we need to do something about it.”
That result left the Saints still in the relegation zone and they must face Chelsea in their next match, so these are worrying times.
Punters can get 19/2 for the Gunners to secure a third straight 3-0 win in the Premier League and that completes our Arsenal vs Southampton betting tips.
