The Southampton vs Arsenal live stream features two teams in urgent need of a win after a recent slump in form.
Arsenal were in pole position to finish in the top four less than a fortnight ago, but their push towards next season’s Champions League has been somewhat dented by back-to-back defeats at the hands of Crystal Palace and Brighton. They still have a game in hand over rivals Tottenham, though, who go into the weekend in that coveted fourth spot and play in the early kick-off.
Southampton have had their Premier League safety confirmed for a while now, but have not won a game in the league since February 25, when they beat Norwich. Indeed, they have only picked up one point since then, courtesy of a 1-1 draw with Leeds. The home fans will be expecting a response from the players after they suffered a 6-0 demolition at the hands of Chelsea last time out.
The visitors will be without some key men though. Midfielder Thomas Partey and fullback Kieran Tierney are out injured, as is Takehiro Tomiyasu. And surprisingly, there's no Alexandre Lacazette either.
Armando Broja is back for the home side in the Southampton vs Arsenal live stream. He is on loan and was therefore ineligible to play against his parent club Chelsea last weekend.
Here's how they line up:
Southampton: Forster, Walker-Peters, Bednarek, Lyanco, Perraud, Valery, S Armstrong, Romeu, Ward-Prowse, Elyounoussi, Broja
Arsenal: Ramsdale, Soares, White, Gabriel, Xhaka, Nuno Tavares, Sambi Lokonga, Saka, Odegaard, Martinelli, Nkhetiah
Can Ralph Hasenhüttl’s team end their terrible run and give their fans something to cheer about, or will Mikel Arteta guide his charges to three crucial points on the south coast? Find out by watching the Southampton vs Arsenal live stream, and we will show you how below.
