Southampton – Arsenal: Saints will be seeking their second victory over the Gunners in just four days’ time when the two sides meet in Premier League action St. Mary’s Stadium on Tuesday (Watch live at 3:15 pm ET, on Peacock Premium).
Ralph Hasenhuttl got the best of Mikel Arteta when Southampton and Arsenal faced off in the fourth round of the FA Cup on Saturday, courtesy of an own goal scored by Gabriel Magalhaes. The defeat snapped Arsenal’s six-game unbeaten run in all competitions — a period in which they outscored opponents by a margin of 13-1. The next month is shaping up to be a decisive — and somewhat difficult — one for Arsenal, as they’re scheduled to face Southampton, Manchester United, Wolves, Aston Villa, Benfica (twice), Manchester City and Leicester City, among others, during a stretch of nine games in 31 days.
As for Southampton, the busy festive tested Hasenhuttl’s side in a big was as injuries and fatigue finally caught up to a rather thin squad that sat in the top-four as recently as Dec. 18. Fast-forward just over a month, and Saints have fallen to 10th and have scored just one goal in their last five Premier League games.

Arteta made just enough changes to the team for Saturday’s FA Cup clash that one can reasonably discard it from consideration when looking ahead to Tuesday. As such, Arsenal are in red-hot form, making them difficult to look past. The only potential issue could come when Southampton are happy to give them the ball and say, “We don’t think you can break us down once we get set defensively, so go ahead and try.” Southampton 0-1 Arsenal.
