Southampton vs Arsenal: Premier League

Everything you need to know ahead of the Premier League clash at St Mary's Stadium on Sunday

Arsenal will have come out of last Saturday's defeat to Manchester United wondering how they managed to lose a game they absolutely dominated.

The Gunners recorded 33 shots, over 600 passes and saw United goalkeeper David de Gea equal a Premier League saves record in the process, but couldn't finish their chances in what proved to be a freak game.

Arsene Wenger is hoping Arsenal can get back to winning ways in the Premier League against Southampton on Sunday.

The Gunners lost 3-1 at home in a damaging defeat against Manchester United last weekend, but followed that up with a morale-boosting 6-0 Europa League win against BATE Borisov on Thursday night.

Wenger's men currently sit sixth in the table, and will be hoping to beat Mauricio Pellegrino's inconsistent Saints on their own turf to boost hopes of a top-four finish.
