Southampton has had a rocky start to the 2022/23 Premier League season. The first three games saw them come away with a loss to Tottenham, a draw against Leeds and a win over Leicester, none of which were shocking results. Since a shocking home win against Chelsea though, The Saints have had a dreadful run of form until winning against Bournemouth earlier this week. Hopefully, that will quell the rumors that manager Ralph Hasenhuttl could be the next EPL manager fired. A win against league-leaders Arsenal would certainly give the Austrian manager a reprieve.

Unfortunately, for Southampton, beating Arsenal has been a tough task for anyone this season. Only Manchester United has managed to draw blood from The Gunners so far this season. Otherwise, its been maximum points for Mikel Arteta's side, who have won their last four games and lead reigning EPL champions Manchester City by four points going into the weekend. Arsenal have scored the second-most goals this season and is tied for the second-least goals conceded, so it's not like there's an easy path for Southampton to find an edge.

So will Arsenal continue their domineering run of form and stay atop the league table? Or will Southampton use their home-field advantage to steal three points against a side that has been weaker on the road than at home? Find out by watching this Southampton vs Arsenal live stream.  

Here's how they line up: 

Southampton: Bazunu, Lyanco, Caleta-Car, Salisu, Perraud, Elyounoussi, Diallo, Ward-Prowse, Aribo, S Armstrong, A Armstrong.

Arsenal: Ramsdale, White, Saliba, Gabriel, Tomiyasu, Partey, Xhaka, Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli, Jesus.
