ARSENAL are two goals to the good against Saints after goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Martin Odegaard.
But Southampton had started strongly, giving the Gunners a fright with some fierce pressing, but the home side’s counter attacking is too strong.
After defeat at Everton on Monday, all eyes have been on Mikel Arteta’s strikers.
But there will be no eyes on Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has been AXED from the Arsenal squad after his horror miss at the end of the Everton game.
The decision comes after a disciplinary breach from the Gabon star.
Despite the visitors almost matching Arsenal for possession and stats, they haven’t looked as threatening going forward as the home side.
But if they continue to keep having more shots on goal than Mikel Arteta’s army, in theory, that top statistic will eventually change.
TWO TO THE GOOD
After a shaky start to the game, Arsenal go into the break with a 2-0 lead over Southampton.
They really are bossing it.
TIME TO RE-UP ON THE SNACKS GUYS!
WHAT A HALF THAT WAS!
BUT WE HAVE REACHED THE INTERVAL!
HT: ARSENAL 2-0 SOUTHAMPTON
