Southampton-Arsenal Preview

As Southampton continue to struggle whilst mired in the drop zone, Arsenal must play better coming out of the international break than they did going in. Or, things could get even uglier for embattled manager Unai Emery.

The Gunners look to keep their season-high Premier League winless rut from reaching five straight matches when they aim to continue their home dominance over Southampton on Saturday.

It's been somewhat of a maddingly inconsistent domestic campaign thus far for Arsenal (4-5-3), who sit sixth in the Premier League table (eight points off the top four), have just three defeats on the season but only two wins since opening with back-to-back triumphs versus Newcastle United and Burnley.
