Can The Gunners Overcome The Saints? Arsenal v Southampton Head-to-head Statistics

By timgarrett IN FA Cup,General,Ultimate Form Guide - 19:55 Jan 27th 2017
 

It was a weekend of contrasts for Arsenal last time out. Whilst manager Arsene Wenger managed to land himself in hot water, his side managed to escape their own with a dramatic last-gasp winner against Burnley. Next up, however, is a tricky trip to Southampton.

And they will find a Saints side in incredibly high spirits, having just booked their place at Wembley with a stunning 0-1 victory at Anfield in the EFL Cup. Their young players shone as Claude Puel guided his side to a first major final in 14 years, but will he be able to outsmart his former mentor and keep dreams of a domestic cup double alive?

Our Ultimate Form Guide (above) suggests that is a big ask, as Arsenal arrive at St Mary’s in significantly better form than Southampton. Across 15 key statistical areas, they top their hosts in 11.

The contrast is most stark in attack, where Arsenal have been rather prolific of late. An average of 2.3 goals per game is excellent, and a conversion rate of 23% is even better. It has been 11 matches since Arsenal last drew a blank, although it’s worth noting that the opponents on that occasion were Southampton.

Defensively both sides are looking strong, with an average 1.1 and 1.3 goals conceded per game respectively. They are both conceding plenty of shots on their goals, however, suggesting that this match may indeed be one for the neutrals.

Overall it looks as though Arsene Wenger’s men have the edge, but don’t write off a Southampton side who have 3 wins and 1 draw in their last 5 meetings with the Gunners.
