Arsenal will be looking to get revenge this week as they play Southampton. The last time these two teams met in the Premier League was not so long ago and that encounter at St Mary’s saw Arsenal get smashed by a back to form Saints side. This time around we are going to be in North London and Arsenal will want to get their pride back and also continue their pursuit for first place.
Arsenal saw the return of Alexis Sanchez on the weekend and that will give the side a huge boost in the attacking third. This is not the easiest game for him coming back from injury since he played recently so he might be on the bench, nevertheless it is another option for Arsene Wenger going forward. This team is still considered by many as favorites to win the league and it is hard to see them not winning this match midweek with the talent and depth that is available.
Southampton will also have hope but this season has been a little poor for the Saints and I don’t think that they can do the double over the Gunners here. That being said, I am sure they will put up a good performance and that is something that has been consistent with this team.
As far as betting is concerned, I think that taking Arsenal with the handicap is the best bet. The Gunners are at home and they are very good going forward so I am very optimistic that they can get a big win here. This is paying well so we are getting good value so it is definitely where my money will be on.
