Arsenal vs Southampton Match Preview
At the end of a week when Mauricio Pochettino lost his job at Arsenal’s biggest rivals Tottenham, the two current favourites in the Premier League Sack Race market find themselves going head-to-head.
Before Poch’s sacking, Unai Emery was reported to be under just as much, if not more, pressure with his Arsenal side having failed to win any of their latest five matches before the international break.
But starting with this game, the Gunners have a favourable run of fixtures over the next month and therefore the Arsenal board are clearly prepared to give the Spaniard a chance to win over the club’s increasingly disgruntled fans, unhappy at the lack of obvious progress.
Ralph Hasenhuttl’s position at Southampton is also under threat, according to the bookmakers at least, with his team’s 9-0 home drubbing by Leicester seemingly considered to be very difficult to come back from.
Not only that but Saints have fallen to second from bottom of the table after collecting only one point from their last seven matches and they are relying overwhelmingly on striker Danny Ings to score goals – in fairness he is doing his bit, but nobody else can say the same.
Southampton have a terrible record away to Arsenal with their last league victory being at Highbury in 1987 and we expect Emery to secure his position slightly with a routine win.
