In Across the Leagues EXTRA today:
Christmas is on the way, and the festive fixture list gets going today…
In the Premier League, ‘Amazon Week’ begins from 6pm. There’s a full round of 10 games taking place across today, tomorrow & Thursday – all live on Amazon Prime Video.
There are some big matches in store. Including Liverpool v Tottenham at the top of the table. And a high-pressure home match for Arsenal…
Wednesday, 6pm – Amazon Prime Video
Match odds: Arsenal 5/4 (2.25), Draw 12/5 (3.4), Southampton 9/4 (3.25)
All eyes are on Arsenal and Mikel Arteta in this one…
They say the league table doesn’t lie. The Gunners currently sit 15th, 5 points off the relegation zone. Most alarmingly of all for Arsenal fans: they’ve lost 4 in a row at home in the league.
Southampton are flying high in 4th place, just 2 pts off the top as it stands. Only Leicester, Tottenham & Man Utd have scored more away goals than the Saints this season.
Arsenal have failed to score in 6 of their last 8 Premier League matches overall. In an attempt to create more goals and chances, the North London side have been piling the crosses into the opposition’s box…
And while the goals haven’t been coming, the Gunners have been earning plenty of corners for their efforts:
The Head-2-Head home v away comparison in the members-only zone of our Across the Leagues website shows that Arsenal are averaging 7.0 Corners For and 4.7 Against at the Emirates Stadium. With Southampton averaging 2.5 Corners For and 7.2 Against on the road
Big Match Stats summary:
With such strong corners stats in favour of the home side, I’m surprised Arsenal aren’t priced up shorter for the Most Corners for this game. Some bookies call this market the Corners Match Bet:
