Arsenal will welcome a home fixture after losing two straight on their travels to Manchester United and then Everton.
Martin Odegaard’s first half stoppage time opener gave Arsenal the lead, before Richarlison equalised 11 minutes from time and then Demarai Gray scored a winner late into stoppage time.
Defeat against Everton pushed the Gooners out of the top five as resurgent Tottenham and Man Utd both won. With a home record only bettered by Tottenham this will be an ideal opportunity to get back on track.

Derby day blues
In Saturday’s South Coast Derby, Southampton were looking like claiming all three points, but in the eighth minute of injury time Neal Maupay equalised for Brighton to take a share of the points.
Southampton are now winless in four and slowly descending towards the bottom of the table.
Southampton draw too many games at home, while their away record is one of the worst in the league, not just so far this season but in the whole calendar year.
Arsenal vs Southampton predictions
In their last matches both sides were victims of late goals to drop points, however, we believe it will be Arsenal who will reverse their fortunes.
It is a simple case of one of the best home records (Arsenal 5W 1D 1L) going against one of the worst away records (Southampton 1W 2D 4L) and Arsenal will have enough to see off Southampton.
Arsenal have kept home clean sheets recently versus Watford and Newcastle, teams with similar struggles to Southampton away from home. We see no reason why Arsenal can’t keep this up, we predict Arsenal will win to nil.

Arsenal team news
Granit Xhaka returned to the starting line-up against Everton and played the full 90 minutes.
The only definite absentee for this one is Sead Kolasinac.
Southampton team news
Goalkeeper Alex McCarthy misses out due to injury while second choice Fraser Forster is also a doubt. The Saints signed Willy Caballero on a free earlier this week and he could go straight in for his debut.
Stuart Armstrong and Jan Bednarek both also miss out with calf injuries.
