High flying Arsenal are one of the lucky Premier League teams who weren’t part of the clustered series of midweek fixtures this week, as they travel down to face Southampton this Sunday looking to extend their lead at the top of the table. Both teams will play at Southampton’s Southampton/stadium">St. Mary’s Stadium on October 23 with a 2pm kick off.
Arsenal were scheduled to be part of the midweek fixtures with a battle for the top of the table against Manchester City, however the game was postponed in order to accommodate the North London side’s upcoming Europa League fixture against Dutch side PSV Eindhoven.
The Gunners were originally scheduled to play PSV on Thursday 15 September, but that game was postponed following the death of Queen Elizabeth II, alongside a number of other sporting fixtures due to take place across those days afterwards.
Southampton however had no such respite in the Premier League, as they took on Bournemouth on Wednesday, winning the game away from home 1-0. Could Southampton take advantage of Arsenal’s break away from midweek games with the momentum they have after the win?
With a four point gap between Arsenal and Manchester City if Pep Guardiola’s team overcome Brighton the day before, can a win for Mikel Arteta once again extend that lead to seven points as the football world marches closer to the World Cup 2022 break? Londonworld is here to let you know how to watch Southampton v Arsenal live.
