After beating Liverpool in the EFL Cup semifinal in midweek, Southampton are set to repeat what they did to the Reds when they host Arsenal at St. Mary’s Stadium in the FA Cup.
The hosts have been in a really poor form in the Premier League in the last few rounds. The team have lost four games in a row in the English top division before beating Leicester City at home in their last round. They have collected a total of 3 points from a possible 15 in their last five league games. Their last game finished 3-0 over Leicester City in a very strong come back from the Saints.
Southampton are currently sitting in the 11th place in the Premier League table with 27 points from 7 wins, 6 draws and 9 losses. They have scored 22 goals and conceded 26 since the start of the season.
James Ward-Prowse and Jay Rodriguez will not feature this weekend after picking up injuries in their EFL Cup semi final second leg triumph over Liverpool on Wednesday.
The visitors are in a very strong form in the Premier League right now. Arsenal have been solid since the start of the season except for the occasional points dropped every few games. The team have been looking sharper than ever in recent weeks. The Gunners are unbeaten in the league in their last five matches. They have collected 13 points from a possible 15 in that same period. Their last game was against Burnley at home where they won 2-1.
Arsenal are sitting second in the Premier League table with 47 points from 14 wins, 5 draws and 3 losses. They have scored 50 goals and conceded 23 since the start of the season.
Granit Xhaka starts his four-match ban this weekend after picking up his second red card of the season last time out. Danny Welbeck has made three substitute appearances this season since making his comeback from a long-term injury and could be in line for his first start of the season against Southampton.
