Match Preview & Team News
Mikel Arteta was heavily criticized as his squad spent so much time around EPL relegation zone! Situation got drastically better lately, with Arsenal winning four out of the last five appearances across competitions and getting to position number ten. Home win against Chelsea FC was arguably the best match they have played so far in this campaign. Southampton recently defeated Liverpool at home, so we will surely be in for one hell of a match. Read on our FA Cup betting tips and predictions below.
Current Form And Home & Away Performances
Fitness could be an issue for Southampton. The Saints have already played two games in the last six days, with this one being the third. They faced Shrewsbury Town in FA Cup round three on Tuesday and successfully advanced thanks to the goals scored by Ward-Prowse and Nlundulu. Premier League progress was temporarily stopped last Saturday with a loss 0-2 to Leicester City. Overall, fans are surely thrilled their squad is in position to fight for at least Europa League spot. Danny Ings is having one of the best seasons of his career and will surely be a huge threat for Arsenal.
The Gunners advanced to this stage much harder than expected. They faced Newcastle United who were severed by injuries. Still, the game went into extra time where Arsenal scored twice to secure a spot in 4th round. Meantime they drew to Crystal Palace at home and defeated Magpies in the EPL 3-0.
Goals Markets Betting Preview
Five out of the last seven matches between these two opponents offered a lot of action and goals, ending either with BTTS or Over 2.5 FT. We will back both to score at 9/10 odds.
Arsenal have picked up one hell of a form lately and kept a lot of clean sheets. FA Cup is probably the best chance to win a trophy this season so we will back Gunners to claim victory in regular time at 6/5 odds.
