Michael Owen predicts Southampton v Arsenal

Southampton will take on Arsenal at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League on Boxing Day.

Former Manchester United and Liverpool striker Michael Owen has predicted on Colossusbets.com that Arsenal will win against Southampton away from home on Boxing Day.

Southampton will take on Arsenal at St. Mary’s Stadium in the Premier League on Saturday evening, and Owen has backed the Gunners to register a 3-1 victory.

“If Southampton don’t buck their ideas up pretty sharpish, they could be dragged into a relegation battle, as they are winless in their last six games and showed disappointingly little when losing 2-0 at home to Tottenham last week,” the former Newcastle United striker has written on Colossusbets.com. “They are struggling for goals.

“And an Arsenal side with their tails up won’t need any second invitation to take advantage of any lack of confidence, so I take the Gunners to win 3-1 at St Mary’s.”

Arsenal will head into the game at St. Mary’s Stadium as favourites and with confidence.

Arsene Wenger’s side are in great form at the moment and will fancy their chances of picking up all three points.

The Gunners defeated Manchester City 2-1 at the Emirates Stadium in North London in the Premier League on Monday night to extend their winning run in all competitions to four games.

Meanwhile, Southampton are struggling at the moment and have been in poor form for a while.

Ronald Koeman’s side will head into the encounter against Arsenal on the back of a 2-0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur at St. Mary’s Stadium in the league.

The Saints have not won a single game since November 7 when they got the better Sunderland 1-0 away from home at the Stadium of Light.
