The Gunners comfortably beat Nigel Adkins' side on Saturday afternoon but can they keep their impressive form going and challenge at the very top of the table?
Arsenal continued their fine start to the season with a comfortable 6-1 win over Southampton on Saturday afternoon.
Lukas Podolski, Theo Walcott & Gervinho (twice) all got on the scoresheet, and they were also given a hand by own goals from Jos Hooiveld & Nathaniel Clyne.
The Gunners remain unbeaten so far having posted draws with Sunderland and Stoke before edging out Liverpool and Nigel Adkins' side.
The north London club have still also conceded just one goal - Danny Fox's first-half strike after they had already carved out a 4-0 lead - and now look imperious going forward.

Arsenal have never failed to qualify for the Champions League since Arsene Wenger's arrival but have not been crowned champions of England since the 2003-04 season.
However, despite struggling to mount a challenge for honours in past seasons, could this be the year which the Gunners capitalise on their good start?
So, can Arsenal challenge for the Premier League title this term? Or is the true test of their credentials against champions Manchester City next week? Will the Gunners fall short yet again due to their lack of squad depth compared to the big guns?
