Our match prediction:
Buoyed by a 3-1 win over Watford, Arsenal take on Southampton on day 4 of the new Premier League campaign. The Gunners regained a much-needed confidence and they will be looking to record their first home win of the season when they host the Saints at their Emirates Stadium on Saturday afternoon. Arsene Wenger did sign a striker in the summer transfer window, with Deportivo La Coruna attacker Lucas Perez joining the capital club and it remains to be seen if he is going to make his Arsenal debut against Southampton. The Saints have been struggling at the start of the season and seeing that a number of first-team regulars left the club in the summer, we predict that the visitors are going to return home empty-handed from Saturday’s football match. A man to watch in the home team will be Chilean ace Alexis Sanchez, who impressed in the 3-1 win at Watford.
