The fact that Arsenal are trading at such a short price to overcome Southampton means that their win odds might only be suitable for an accumulator bet. However, there could be something to be gained from backing the Gunners to win without conceding. Mikel Arteta will want his team to be more defensively stubborn after conceding twice against Liverpool and West Ham in consecutive weeks.

The draw at Anfield was acceptable and Arsenal were left to hang on for a point, although the way in which the Gunners went from controlling the match at the London Stadium to letting West Ham back into the encounter will have been tough to take. The absence of William Saliba appears to be causing issues although the form of Aaron Ramsdale has been excellent.

Therefore, an Arsenal victory without conceding could be the best bet, although there are other Premier League Bet Builder options and perhaps we will see Bukayo Saka back on the scoresheet here. The England international missed from the penalty spot at the London Stadium although he can be a menace here and the same applies to Gabriel Martinelli from a wide position.

Southampton did actually manage to hold the Gunners to a 1-1 draw at St Mary’s in the reverse fixture and they have to go for victories in order to stay afloat. However, Ruben Selles’ side were meek when losing 2-0 at home to Crystal Palace and it appears that the writing is on the wall for the Saints who are losing touch with the teams directly above them.
