PREDICTION
Arsenal may have lost to Manchester United last weekend, but they will take comfort in the amount of chances that they created in defeat. They have won four of their last six matches and although away from home this weekend they are favourites to win against a Southampton side who have only one won of their last six matches.

MEMORABLE MEETING
There was no Boxing Day cheer for Arsenal in 2015 as they were soundly beaten by Southampton at St Mary’s. The festive celebrations would certainly continue for Saints fans as Ronald Koeman masterminded a 4-0 win over the Gunners.
