Arsenal – Southampton

The gunners had to overcome a 1 nil deficit to Bate as the beat the opponents in the return leg to make it to the next round. Unai Emery who started off on a bright note certainly has more work to do as Arsenal find themselves out of the top 4. And with 3 defeats in 7 encounters coupled with Manchester United’s resurgence it’s turning into a real battle.

On a brighter note, Arsenal’s shortcomings have mostly come in away fixtures. This surely wouldn’t be good news for Southampton who head here searching for a positive result. As they find themselves in 18 position and a point adrift of 17th place.
