Gunners to finally produce at home against the Saints
<div><h2 style="text-align:center">Arsenal vs Southampton</h2><p style="text-align:center"><a href="https://www.oddsmarket.com/football/eng/premier-league/southampton-fc-vs-arsenal-fc-3841227/" target="_blank" title="Game Odds"><strong>Saturday 23rd November at Emirates Stadium</strong></a></p><h2>Arsenal</h2><p>The Gunners have only won once in the last five games in the Premier League. Unai Emery has got to galvanize this bunch of under achievers. World class strikers combined with second rate defenders contribute to the inconsistency of this great club. To many questions are unanswered as to why this group of players cannot hold a lead or win away from home. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang has eight goals in eleven games. Alexandre Lacazette has just two goals from seven appearances. Dani Cabellos has two assists but is struggling to be fit (hamstring). A big statement win cannot be far away and the Arsenal fans will hope this weekend will be that time. Mesut Ozil still remains the biggest enigma in the Premier League. I believe his languid style is infectious and slows down the thought process of his fellow midfielders. The Arsenal defence is an embarrassment for a club aiming at a top four finish. Hector Bellerin and Sead Kolasinac are effective going forward yet leave the back door open for the counter attack.</p><p><strong>KEY Strengths</strong>: Forwards with goal scoring instincts. Pace in attack</p><p><strong>KEY Weakness</strong>: Over playing midfielders and defence.</p><p><a href="http://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=160&amp;a=9feaaf7a-d7a2-4185-974a-81ad171951df&amp;f=3"><img alt src="https://imstore.bet365affiliates.com/AffiliateCreativeBanners/Sports/General/Bet%20Builder/en-GB/UK/STD/728x90_2.jpeg" style="width:100%;height:12px" /></a></p><h2>Southampton</h2><p>The realization of relegation is already hitting Southampton right between the eyes. We are in November and the Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl still does not know his best team. Chances created are at an all time low leading to a lack of goals. The defence has not been settled due to change after change including the goalkeepers. No player would say they have performed to a level they would be happy with. Danny Ings has five goals in 12 Premier League games. This team got beat 9-0 at home to Leicester city then went to Man City and lead for almost an hour. There is talent in this squad but the link up play and perpetual moving is disjointed. Positives at this moment in time for the Saints is very hard to find. With winnable games coming up after this weekend, Southampton’s future will not depend on getting a result at the Emirates.</p><p><strong>KEY Strengths: </strong>Honesty in their work.</p><p><strong>KEY Weakness</strong>: Creating chances, keeping clean sheets, leaders.</p><p> </p><h2>Betting Analysis</h2><p>I hope we see a five star Arsenal performance. Goals, chances created and a clean sheet down to a disciplined and organized defensive platform. Southampton scored away at Man City two weeks ago and held on for almost an hour before being beaten 2-1. This game is all about which Arsenal turns up. The entertaining flat out pace of the strikers will be to much for a low in confidence low in creativity South Coast team. I'm going to go in again on Arsenal to WIN to Nil.</p><p><strong>Best Tips:</strong></p><ul> <li>Arsenal win to NIL @2.83 at <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=150&amp;a=bf7f64f4-cd67-4904-9b00-6ded1d41fd18&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="A+ Rated Bookmaker!">Bet365</a></li> <li>Arsenal -1.75 (AH) @2.75 at <a href="https://a.oddsmarket.com/record/v?c=153&amp;a=8ec6399a-9df1-4c52-b272-39e6428836a6&amp;f=1" rel="nofollow" target="_blank" title="Join Betfair Today!">Betfair</a></li></ul></div>
