Arsenal would trade tackles against Southampton at the Emirates this weekend in one of the key Premier League fixture certain to capture the fans.
The Gunners are in dire need of the result at home and Mikel Arteta and his technical crew are certainly aware of what is at stake in this match.
Southampton has been decent in all ramifications this season despite the not too-good result they’ve attained this term.
But in this fixture Arsenal must be at their best to record a win against the Saints at all costs.
Arteta could have a team selection headache based on his squad arrangement amid the injury to certain of his players.
But he must think outside the box to stand afloat as a top manager his position demands in essence.
When French Manager Arsene Wenger was at Arsenal many people applauded and criticized him including the so-called bookmakers. Now see where the Arsenal side is in the current football rating.
The fact that we are not certain that Arsenal will win this match even with the tune of our query here depicts a Lion that has become weak which sums up the London side predicament.
Liverpool defeated the Saints 4-0 at Anfield and the manner of execution was worth taking note of even from a high point of view.
Though the Saints deserved a goal on that day as they gave Liverpool a big fight in the match tough.
But with the inconsistency here and there from Arsenal’s dealing and perspective coupled with the injury that could keep guys like Emile Smith Rowe and Gabriel Martinelli out of the side, anything can happen meaning that whoever wins this match wouldn’t be a surprise at all.
While we acknowledge though that Arsenal is still the overwhelming favourite to beat Southampton.
Even as the Gunners would want to make the most of their advantage playing at home in this weekend’s contest.
