Good relaxing game for Arsenal in this one considering they've got the better attack component and Southampton can't seem to get out of the rut they are in. Might even see a repeat of that FA Cup score.

Hoping for an emphatic Arsenal win. 5-0 would do.

Your boys are doing quite well at the minute.  At the rate you are going you'd get about 35 points which should keep you up

35 might not be enough. 2 of the teams below Cardiff have just got new managers so might start producing a better points average in the 2nd half of the season

Possibly. The last 2 seasons it would have been enough but I get what you mean. To he fair some people thought they would do worse than derby so they have done better than most expected

Ideally you want to get to 35 points with 4+ games to go and not be needing to get to 35 in those last 4.

8 - Arsenal have started brightly, Miki should have done better after just being played through. Saints fans are loud though which is great considering they're at home.

10 - Arsenal fans singing ''Shall we sing a song for you?'' :dam:. How the mighty have fallen, such a tinpot chant. 

Saints growing into this, Vestergaard especially looks up for it and has just sent Ings through, Leno mopping up. Can definitely see an early goal as both sides are looking direct. Break in the game as I type with Nathan Redmond going down, Xhaka unintentionally catching him on the ankle.

13 - Redmond back on the pitch and goes close, deflected off an Arsenal body for a corner. Comes to nothing in the end though despite Leno looking rather shakey. Sky Sports have just apologised as Arsenal can be heard singing ''You're fucking shit xD''.

Hate that apology shit when the crowd chants something not offensive at all.

18 - Southampton are looking really good on the counter, Arsenal give away cheap possession and through Hojberg, Redmond and Armstrong it's a shot on target. Easy enough for Leno in the end but the intent is there. By comparison, Danny Ings has looked really poor up top and could well be finished at this level - Bambi on Ice showing so far :dam:

19 - Hahaha fuck right off, ball comes in from the left and Ings heads in at the near post, Southampton lead 1-0!

Cracking ball from Targett. Koscielny showing his rustiness there.

Love the ''Danny Ings, he's one of our own shouts''. Played for them as a schoolboy and was released, made it into football through their rivals Bournemouth before coming back to the team on loan this season. Hardly as though he's come through an Ajax-style academy from the age of 3 and started tearing the league apart :dam:.

23 - Momentum is all with Southampton, will be interesting if they go 2-0 ahead what happens. Redmond has been class so far but has just lost possession, nothing to really report on the other side of the pitch. The likes of Iwobi, Aubamayang and Miki very quiet although admittedly having little to no service.

27 - Totally against the run of play Arsenal are level, Iwobi breaks down the left and passes it onto the overlapping Monreal. It's whipped in towards Aubamayang but the unmarked Miki heads the ball home from the penalty spot. It's level! 1-1.

Quality saving block from the defender there. 

Decent game so far. Can see the effect the new Saints boss has had on the side. Playing with much more vigour and desire.

31 - Arsenal nearly make it 2-1, ball whipped in and Aubamayang is on the six-yard line with an open goal but somehow Southampton scramble it away. Targett pumps a ball into the final third moments later but Vestergaard heads way over. Bit of a ding-dong finish to the half with either side likely to score.

35 - Arsenal determined to play out from the back but Southampton are pressing really well, Leno nearly getting himself into trouble. Armstrong on the left has played brilliant so far.

2-1! Ings header loops improbably into the top corner. Definition of the postage stamp right there and off another clever ball from Redmond.

43 - Sexy AF. Redmond chips the ball into the box and takes out the two centre-halves. Danny Ings heads the ball high and long, looping right over Leno who stands and watches. Saints lead! Bellerin down injured too adding salt into the wounds for Arsenal.
