The Premier League form book has been something that you shouldn’t be consulting this season but, I think we should look closely at it when Arsenal travel to St Mary’s to take on Southampton.
A month ago this would’ve been a potential banana skin for the Gunners but it’s just impossible to see past them at the 21/20 with BetBright.
On Monday Arsenal stormed to the top of the Premier League betting with a 2-1 win at home against main title rivals against Manchester City.
They just don’t drop points in these kind of fixtures and with home matches to come against Bournemouth and Newcastle it could be a very happy festive period for the Gunners.
In the last month calendar month they are unbeaten in the six matches they’ve played winning five of them and I just can’t see how they can get beat in this one.
Ronald Koeman comes into this fixture with not much festive cheers.
The Dutchman has done a fantastic job in the two seasons he’s been in charge on the south coast but, this is the first big test of his management at St Mary’s as his side are really struggling for any form.
In the last month, unlike their opponents, they’ve managed the total opposite record to the Gunners’ and are without a win in their last six matches, losing five of them.
They are no value at all at the 45/17 that is available on the home win.
Although the chances haven’t, the goals have certainly all dried up for the Saints, which is a massive concern.
They haven’t scored in their last two loses against Crystal Palace and Tottenham and up against an Arsenal side that look rock solid in defence and rampant going forward, well I really can’t see the home side scoring in this one either.
This is going to be very straight forward away win in my opinion but, I can’t see many goals as this fixture has seen less than three goals scored in every one of the last five meetings.
Correct-score backers may want to put a couple of quid on an Arsenal 2-0 win at what looks massive at 31/4 with Betbright.
