Southampton v Arsenal Betting Preview
Date: 21st January
Stadium: St. Mary’s
Channel: Sky Sports Premier League
Tottenham are looking to build upon last week’s thumping 4-0 win against Everton as they travel to strugglers Southampton, who are without a Premier League win in 10.
The reverse of this fixture wasn’t too long ago, as Spurs won 5-2 on Boxing Day at Wembley, which included a Harry Kane hat trick. Since that result Spurs have collected 7 points from a possible 9, and find themselves 3 points off the top 4. Mauricio Pochetttino will know that anything other than a top 4 finish would be a failure for Spurs, so as he returns to his former club, he will be hoping to heap on the misery of the Saints fans.
Getting rid of Claude Puel is looking like a really poor decision. Languishing in 17th, Southampton find themselves just 1 point off the relegation zone, and have kept just 1 clean sheet in their last 14 Premier League games. If results stay the same its hard to imagine that Mauricio Pellegrino will stay in charge, and with managerial options thin on the ground, it really looks like Southampton could be in a relegation battle for the remainder of the season.
Harry Kane will look to carry on his blistering form, which has seen him bag 4 in his last 2 outings. He’s scored 20 goals so far this season and you wouldn’t bet against him getting the golden boot again this season. Son Heung-min has also been a prevalent figure in Spurs’s recent good run, and will be hoping to continue his rich vein of form.
- Charlie Austin and Maya Yoshida are both missing for Southampton through injury
