Southampton v Arsenal: Santi Claus is coming to town for the Gunners
Arsenal were left hanging on for their dear lives against QPR but despite Olivier Giroud’s red card they held on for an important win that saw the club extend its unbeaten run to five games.
They head to St Mary’s as the 6/4 favourites for victory while anyone predicting a repeat of the draw Arsenal picked up against Liverpool can get 12/5 on such an outcome.
Southampton, meanwhile, have come through a recent sticky patch to pick up seven points from the last nine available and are 15/8 to win here, but rather than plump for any one of these three viable outcomes, we’ve got three even better bets for you to back.
The Spaniard has been hitting the high notes for Arsenal of late, having scored in four goals in his last five games for the club. Penalty taker at the club, Cazorla would have had five in five were it not for the fact that Alexis Sanchez decided to take a spot-kick against QPR.
Having gone through a period of three games without conceding a goal, Arsenal have now scored and conceded in each of their last six games with each of their last four victories coming in games where the Gunners have also conceded.
The Senegalese midfielder has been a lucky charm for Southampton over the festive period, scoring the opening goal in games against Crystal Palace and Chelsea and with Arsenal proving defensively porous, a repeat could well be on the cards.
