Relegation Candidates Dig Deep
Charlie Austin has scored in all 3 of his Premier League games against Arsenal. Stoke held the Gunners for 75 minutes last week before folding and another bottom 3 side may do similarly.
Southampton embarrassed themselves last time out at West Ham but they’ve shown before this season that they can respond to a setback and hold their own against the big teams.
The Saints don’t have much to show for their efforts but they drew 0-0 at Old Trafford, lost 2-1 at Man City after an injury-time winner, and lost 1-0 at Chelsea after holding out for 45 minutes. This leads us to a recommended bet of ‘Half-time: Draw - Full-time: Arsenal’ at best odds of 15/4 with BetVictor.
Not only will Mark Hughes demand a response from his relegation threatened side but history also suggests Arsenal can be vulnerable after a better run of form.
But the Gunners rank 3rd in terms of home record and can get the job done in the end.
