Arsenal FC vs Southampton FC Starting XI Predictions for Both Teams



Southampton FC will try to end their historic run of futility at Arsenal FC on Sunday when the Gunners host the Saints in a Premier League fixture. The south coast club has a streak of 19 straight Premier League fixtures at Arsenal without a win and their odds for this weekend are far from favorable. 

However, they did win this reverse fixture 3-2 a couple months ago, and crazy stuff happens in the football, so this is far from a foregone conclusion. Let’s take a look at who could be in the Saints and Gunners first teams for this one.
