There are several fixtures to enjoy in the English Premier League on Tuesday night including the meeting between Southampton and Arsenal at St Mary’s Stadium. The hosts begin the week in 10th place on 29 points with the visitors just one place below on 27 points, having played one game more.

Southampton come into the match having recorded a 1-0 victory over Arsenal in the FA Cup on Saturday. That win will certainly give Southampton the confidence they can come out on top in this fixture and it was their third victory in 4 matches in all competitions.

The other wins included a 2-0 success over Shrewsbury Town at home in the FA Cup and a superb 1-0 win at home against Liverpool in the Premier League.

Victories have been difficult to come by recently in the Premier League and Southampton have won only one of their last 6 Premier League matches. However, they have lost only 3 of their last 16 Premier League games, which is a good record.

Home form shows Southampton have been inconsistent of late and they have won 2, drawn one, and lost 2 of their 5 most recent Premier League fixtures at St Mary’s Stadium. Trends show Southampton have kept a clean sheet in their last 4 games in all competitions and have seen under 2.5 goals in each of their last 3 home Premier League matches on home soil.

Arsenal will be looking for revenge having suffered a 1-0 defeat at Southampton in the FA Cup on the weekend. That was the first defeat suffered by The Gunners in their last 7 matches in all competitions. Prior to the loss, Arsenal defeated Chelsea and Newcastle United at home plus Brighton and West Bromwich Albion away in the Premier League.

There was also a 2-0 home victory over Newcastle United in the FA Cup plus Arsenal were held to a 0-0 draw at home by Crystal Palace in the Premier League.

Trends show Arsenal have won each of their last 2 away Premier League fixtures but have lost 2 and drawn one of their last 5 on the road. Arsenal have kept a clean sheet in their last 4 Premier League games and are unbeaten in 19 of their last 22 matches against Southampton in the competition.

Team news and Southampton have several players unavailable for this game due to injury including William Smallbone, Oriol Romeu, Nathan Tella, Michael Obafemi, Moussa Djenepo, Nathan Redmond, and Jannik Vestergaard. Ryan Bertrand is suspended.

Arsenal travel with doubts over the fitness of Daniel Ceballos and Pablo Mari Villar. Pierre Emerick Aubameyang is a doubt for personal reasons. Bukayo Saka, Alexandre Lacazette, Thomas Partey, and David Luiz could all return to the starting XI having been on the bench on Saturday.

This has the makings of being a tight game and we expect to see under 2.5 goals scored. Southampton recorded a narrow victory in the FA Cup but there is little to split the teams and this match could end level.
