It’s Groundhog Day on the south coast, as Southampton and Arsenal do it all again just three days after their FA Cup clash.
The Saints marched to a 1-0 victory on Saturday, knocking out the reigning FA Cup holders for the first time in 118 years!
If you’re looking for a stat a little closer to home, try this one on for size: Southampton have kept a clean sheet in five of their last six matches.
Arsenal will be expecting to field a slightly stronger XI on Tuesday, but after drawing blanks in two of their last three they will be wary of a snowy slip down the table again.
Check out our top Odds Picks for Tuesday’s match including a massive 22/1 Long Shot.

Our Top Odds Pick – Southampton to win – 11/5 at bet365
Saints are one of the stronger home sides in the Premier League.
They’ve conceded the second fewest on home turf (9) all season and have won five of their nine matches at St. Mary’s.
Arsenal’s away form is average at best, and with Southampton’s injury list shortening, we think they are primed for another impressive spell in the coming weeks.
It’s repeat for us, rather than revenge.
Danny Ings has had an injury-stricken season, but has still rattled in seven league goals.
There are rumblings in the media of Ings looking to secure a move to a Champions League team at the end of the season, so we are expecting the striker to be putting himself firmly in the shop window with big performances.
Ings isn’t shy against the “bigger sides” in the division and is capable of bagging again on Tuesday.
