Bet9ja Preview: Arsenal vs Southampton: Stake on victory for Unai Emery’s men

Unai Emery Arsenal 2018-19
The Gunners will be counting on their impressive home record against the Saints in this fixture

Arsenal welcomes Southampton to the Emirates Stadium for their Premier League showdown on Sunday evening.

Ralph Hasenhuttl ended Arsenal’s 22-match unbeaten run when both sides met in the reverse fixture last December, with the Saints proceeding from there to win 3-1 at Huddersfield. But, things have since gone into upheaval for the south-coast club, as they have only managed two wins from their previous eight league games, losing and drawing thrice.

Aside their struggles for consistency in form, Hasenhuttl’s men would have to contend against a very poor record at the Emirates, having lost 17 times in their previous 23 visits to this ground, drawing the rest.

Southampton are thus huge underdogs with Bet9ja at odds of (6.30) to end their winless run here.

Odds of (4.40) are on offer with the same betting firm should the Saints hold the home side to a draw at the end of 90 minutes.

Arsenal are not only solid at home against Southampton, but have made the Emirates Stadium a fortress this season. Since that opening day defeat against Manchester City, Unai Emery’s men have not tasted defeat on home soil and would be riding on the back of this impressive form to ensure victory in this clash - offered at (1.52) odds with Bet9ja.
