Southampton vs. Arsenal Match Analysis and Prediction

Just three days after Arsenal’s FA Cup defense in the fourth round, Southampton welcomes the Gunners to the South Coast once again. The match schedules for Tuesday at St. Mary’s Stadium, with a kickoff at 11:15 pm.

The Gunners lost their FA Cup fourth round defense after a 1-0 loss to Southampton. The side advance to the fifth round to take on Wolves.

Mikel Arteta was in charge of Arsenal’s 14 record-breaking FA Cup triumph less than seven months ago. However, the Spaniard had to watch his side struggle to break off a full fit Southampton side.

Judging by the lineups before the match, there were a few rabbles among the Arsenal fans. Arteta made seven changes from their last 3-0 win over Newcastle United. It featured an out-of-form side, including Willian, Pepe, El Neny, David Luiz, and Nketiah.

An own goal by Gabriel Magalhaes after a Kyle Walker Peter’s strike was enough to secure a fifth-round tie for the Saints. Ralph Hasenhuttl will be looking to make it to the FA Cup finals with over a decade since the Saints won a trophy.

It has been a morale-boosting win month for Southampton, including their memorable 1-0 win over Liverpool. Only Manchester City, Liverpool, and West Ham United have picked up more points this season on their patch.

Southampton Team News

It will be a surprise if Ralph Hassenhuttl makes several changes to the starting XI. However, there are many expected injury concerns, including Vestergaard, Moussa Djenepo, Mohammed Salisu, Nathan Redmond, and Oriol Romelu. We could see Alex McCarthy return between the sticks after overcoming an injury concern.

Arsenal Team News

Pierre Emerick Aubameyang missed the weekend game against Saints while attending personal family matters. It remains a doubt whether the talisman will be available this soon. In the line will be Lacazette alongside Martinelli and Saka on the flanks. Dani Ceballos remains unavailable with a calf problem.
