Arsenal 10/11 to beat Southampton in Sunday’s Premier League encounter
Competition: Premier League
Market: Arsenal to beat Southampton
Odds: 10/11 @ Bet365
The most exciting league in the world returns this weekend as we edge closer to the incredibly congested festive period. Every side in the Premier League will be aware of how important it is to embark upon a good run of form now, as the glut of fixtures to come can often make or break a season. With this in mind, Arsenal travel to face Southampton on Sunday.
Southampton have been in poor form in recent weeks as they have won just one of their last five games. Three defeats and one draw has seen the side falling down the table as they struggle to keep pace with those above them. They do have a seven-point gap between themselves and the relegation zone, but the fans will want to see their side put together a run of wins that almost entirely ease their worries.
For Arsenal, this is a must-win game. Their superb run of form was ended by Manchester United last Saturday as the Gunners were beaten, which saw them lose for the first time in three Premier League games. The defeat means that Arsenal have slipped into fifth-place with 28 points, one point behind Liverpool in fourth, and the last Champions League place. The Gunners have been known to let a single defeat snowball into a number of negative results, so Arsene Wenger will be looking for an immediate response from his side against Southampton. With this in mind, we are backing Arsenal with odds of 10/11 from Bet365.
