Arsenal’s Crucial Battle for the Title

Mikel Arteta’s side were unable to manage a two-goal lead against Liverpool and West Ham, and, as a result, the gap between them and Man City has now been reduced to a mere four points.

Considering that Pep Guardiola’s men have a game on hand, potentially the Gunners lead could be down to just a point, and they absolutely need a win on Friday before heading to The Etihad next Wednesday for a colossal clash against City that could decide the title race.

Southampton’s Struggle for Survival

Even if Southampton are currently at the bottom of the Premier League table, there are still chances for them to avoid relegation as they are just four points from safety. Recent times have been very turbulent for the Saints, though, as they are heading to North London on the back of a six-round winless run, with their most recent result being a 2-0 loss at home to a direct competitor in the battle to avoid relegation, Roy Hodgson’s Crystal Palace.

Southampton, who have earned four points from their last two matches against Arsenal, would need to play a very sound defensive game to keep at bay a Gunners’ side, who desperately need the three points after two disappointing consecutive draws.

Arsenal vs Southampton Main Betting Tip: Bukayo Saka To Score Anytime

Bukayo Saka’s Redemption

Bukayo Saka made the news for the wrong reasons last week as the England international missed a crucial penalty against West Ham, which basically cost the Gunners two precious points.

The young Arsenal forward, who has had an impressive campaign so far, scoring 12 goals already this season, will be keen to bounce back and find the back of the net against a very vulnerable Southampton back line. Backing him to score at anytime looks like the way to go in a match where the hosts are expected to have many goal opportunities.

Arsenal vs Southampton Value Bet: Gabriel Jesus To Score & Arsenal To Win By 3 Or More Goals

Southampton’s last Premier League win dates back to early March, and we expect the Gunners to be very determined to get back to winning ways and deliver a clear message to Guardiola’s men. For our value bet, we have picked Gabriel Jesus to score anytime and Arsenal to win by 3 or more goals, which is currently available at the enhanced price of 3/1 (from 5/2) with William Hill.

Since coming back from injury, the Brazilian striker has been in splendid form, scoring in all three matches he started with Arsenal, including a brace against Leeds. Mikel Arteta’s men have been ruthless against teams in the bottom part of the table this season, scoring at least three goals in all seven home wins against opponents that are currently sitting in 11th position or lower.

Considering Southampton’s current struggles, the Gunners should be able to secure a resounding win on their home turf, which will boost their confidence ahead of the clash with City.

Arsenal vs Southampton Correct Score Prediction: Arsenal 4-1

Arsenal should be able to win this match comfortably, as they are a significantly stronger side and have impressive attacking prowess on their home turf in North London.

In three of their last four matches at the Emirates, the Gunners have scored four goals, with two encounters finishing 4-1. They also scored three goals in the last game, a 3-2 victory over Bournemouth. Given Arteta’s men tend to leak a goal every game, backing 4-1 Arsenal to win looks like a good bet in the correct score market.
