Southampton welcomes Arsenal

Southampton welcomes Arsenal at the St. Mary’s Stadium in a fixture from the 31th round of the Premier League. That’s a nice moment to present you our free soccer tips professional betting for today.

Let’s start with Arsenal who are not enjoying the brightest restart of the season. The Gunners suffered two consecutive defeats against Manchester City and Brighton & Hove Albion, so now they are 10th in the Premier League with 40 points. Mikel Arteta’s team was hoping to eventually catch up with the rest and qualify for the Champions League, but it looks like a difficult task right now.

Of course, losing against Manchester City is nothing to be shocked about, but Arsenal’s defeat against Brighton & Hove Albion was dissapointing. Just 15 minutes before the end the Gunners were leading in the scoresheet thanks to Nicolas Pepe’s goal. Everything went wrong after this when the Seagulls scored twice and won the game.

Arsenal’s manager Mikel Arteta admitted that his team’s performance was unacceptable. He called for response from his players, so let’s see if he’s going to get one.

Southampton restarted their season in a style. The Saints visited the struggling Norwich City and celebrated a crushing 3-0 win. Ralph Hassenhuttl’s boys scored all of their three goals after the break. Danny Ings opened the score while Armstrong and Redmond made it even better for the visitors.

With this win Southampton remain 14th in the league, but now 10 points above the relegation zone. This is going to give the Saints some calmness in these decisive rounds that remain in the Premier League.

We expect a difficult game for Arsenal at the St. Mary’s on Thursday. The Gunners are not showing much lately and Southampton were clinical in their first match after the break. In our free soccer tips professional betting we advise you to be careful.
