England – Premier League 2020 , Southampton vs Arsenal 31th Round In PL, Predicted Starting XI, 25/6/2020

Southampton vs Arsenal
England – Premier League
Start date: Thursday, 25 June 202

time : Kick-off 18:00 UK/ 19:00 CET
Venue: Mary’s Stadium.

Arteta’s men have suffered two defeats and numerous injuries since returning to action, and Al Hain-Cole expects them to struggle against the Saints
Arsenal will be desperate for victory when they travel to St Mary’s Stadium to take on Southampton in Thursday’s Premier League clash.
The Gunners have endured a miserable return to action, going down 3-0 against Manchester City before suffering a shock 2-1 defeat against struggling Brighton.

Southampton vs Arsenal: Head-to-head (h2h)

  • Four of the former five match-ups had goals from both teams.
  • Five of the past seven wins had gone to the Gunners.
  • Three of the prior four games had four or more goals.
  • Two of the preceding four encounters at this venue had five or more goals.
  • The last time these two teams locked horns at this stadium, the home team won 3-2.

Southampton vs Arsenal: Prediction

A draw wouldn’t be the worst result for either team, although Watford in particular are desperate for the points they need to move clear from the relegation zone. Neither team will want to give too much away, and a draw looks on. It will be a bruising encounter whatever way it ends up.

Southampton vs Arsenal: Team News 

If losing back-to-back matches since the restart was not bad enough for Arteta, the Spaniard has also lost three players to potential long-term injuries.  Granit Xhaka and Pablo Mari went off early on against Man City, while goalkeeper Bernd Leno was stretchered off in the defeat to Brighton.  With Lucas Torreira, Calum Chambers, Cedric Soares and Sokratis Papastathopoulos also out, and David Luiz still suspended, Arteta has little room to manoeuvre in terms of team selection.  Matteo Guendouzi did at least escape retrospective action for grabbing Maupay by the throat last time out and is therefore expected to start in a depleted central midfield, which may include Mesut Ozil for the first time since early March.
As for Southampton, they remain without Moussa Djenepo following his dismissal against Newcastle United prior to March’s lockdown.  Hasenhuttl could stick with the same lineup from the well-earned win over Norwich given the six-day gap between matches.  What is almost certain is that Danny Ings will continue to lead the line, with the Englishman having scored three goals in his last two Premier League appearances against Arsenal.

Southampton possible starting lineup:

McCarthy; Valery, Stephens, Bednarek, Bertrand; Armstrong, Ward-Prowse, Hojbjerg, Redmond; Ings, Obafemi

Arsenal possible starting lineup:

Martinez; Bellerin, Mustafi, Holding, Tierney; Ceballos, Guendouzi, Saka; Pepe, Nketiah, Aubameyang
