In their opening 16 games, they have recorded just one win, six draws and nine defeats, scoring 13 and conceding 30 in return, the Saints now hold the second worst attacking record in the top-flight. Picking up just nine points, Southampton currently sit 19th in the table and only their goal difference keeps them above Fulham. As for their recent run of form, Sunday’s hosts have failed to win any of their last 11 Premier League matches and have also lost four of their last five across all competitions.
As for the visitors, enjoying a very impressive start to the new season, Arsenal will have their sights firmly set on securing a return to the Champions League. In their 16 Premier League matches this season, they have won 10, drawn four and lost just twice, scoring 35 and conceding 20 in return. Entering the Christmas schedule, only Manchester City hold a better attacking record than the Gunners. With a points tally of 34, the Reds sit fifth in the table, with only their goal difference keeping them out of the top-four. As for their recent run of form, after booking their spot in the knockout stage of this year’s Europa League, Arsenal are enjoying a 22-match unbeaten run across all competitions.
