Our prediction for this Premier League match:
For the 18th round of the English Premier League Arsenal will travel towards the St Mary's Stadium for the game against Southampton. Southampton was unable to beat Tottenham Hotspur in their last game and lost without having any real chances 0-2. The Saints can't be happy with their performance so far and will have to be happy if they are able to finish top 10 this season. Arsenal on the other hand is heavily involved in the title race and will have to perform week in week out in order to win the English Premier League. Previous confrontations between both teams show that they are very equal to each other. Southampton will have the home advantage in favor but the current squad of Arsenal contains more quality and is in better form. We predict Arsenal to beat 1-3 and bring the 3 points back home to London.
