Southampton vs Arsenal Match Head to Head

In their last six matches in all competitions, Arsenal has beaten Southampton three times, losing once while settling for two draws in the process. 

Last season, the two teams met twice with Soton forcing a 2-2 draw at the Emirates but lost 2-0 in the return leg as they played with ten men. 

The pair have already met this season, last year in December where they settled for a 1-1 draw in a game that saw center back Gabriel sent off for receiving a second yellow card.

Soton have a host of injuries with the likes of Moussa Djenepo, Michael Obafemi, Nathan Redmond, Nathan Tella, Jannik Vestergaard, and William Smallbone all sidelined. 

Danny Ings will lead the line if he is cleared to do so after testing positive for COVID-19 earlier this month.
