Mikel Arteta’s men have lost their last two consecutive league games which has led to bitter rivals Spurs leapfrogging them on the charts.
And now, the North London outfit come up against a side which they rarely get joy out of on their home ground in Southampton.
However, the Saints are going into this match off the back of a 6-0 pummelling by Chelsea which would have severely damaged their confidence.
What time is Southampton vs Arsenal kick off?
What TV channel is Southampton vs Arsenal on and can I live stream it?
- Sadly, Southampton vs Arsenal will not be broadcasted live on UK television.
- Reason being is because kick-off falls in between the time of the TV blackout law which runs from 2:45pm – 5:15pm.
- However, subscription members of NBC can stream the game via the NBC Sport website or app.
Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl confirmed that Lyanco and goalkeeper Alex McCarthy are both back in training with the team, which puts them in contention for the match against Arsenal.
Shane Long has also missed a lot of action but his ankle issues is “not that serious” according to Hasenhuttl, so he could also be involved.
And Armando Broja should slot right back into the team having been ineligible to face his parent club Chelsea last weekend.
Elsewhere, the trio of Kieran Tierney, Thomas Partey and Takehiro Tomiyasu will all miss the trip to Southampton for Arsenal.
Which leaves Mikel Arteta with big decisions to make in the defensive areas of the pitch.
- Southampton to win 29/10
- Draw 13/5
- Arsenal to win 10/11
