Arsenal are the new Premier League title favourites after a deserved 2-1 win against Manchester City on Monday night, with Arsene Wenger’s team building up a nice head of steam at the moment.

Perhaps Wenger will be rewarded for continuing to take a long-term approach at the Emirates Stadium, with Boxing Day’s clash at St Mary’s representing a super opportunity to claim another three points and potentially close in on Leicester City.

Mesut Ozil ran the show against City and the German created two more goals which means he’s on track to beat the assists record in a Premier League season. Expect him to be on the ball a lot against the Saints.

It’s all going a bit Pete Tong for Ronald Koeman’s side who are sinking down the Premier League table, with the Dutchman admitting that Southampton could get sucked into a relegation scrap.

Last season, the Saints were fast out of the traps, although they don’t have the bank of points to rely upon this term, with Sadio Mane and Graziano Pelle failing to deliver the level of performance that was in evidence during a 3-1 win at Chelsea a couple of months ago.

They should be easy pickings for an Arsenal team who might welcome back Alexis Sanchez for this clash, with the Gunners defence looking pretty mean and the performance levels of Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud reaching heights right now.

Joel Campbell is also emerging at the Emirates and it’s easy enough to see a margin of victory by two goals or greater for the visitors.
