Welcome to football.london ‘s live coverage of Southamtpon vs Arsenal at St Mary’s Stadium. The Gunners finally have the opportunity to turn around a bad run of form after back-to-back defeats against Crystal Palace and Brighton.

On the back of a bad couple of results, Mikel Arteta will want to replicate the score of the fixture against Southampton earlier in the season as the north London side ran rampant in a 3-0 victory over the Saints. Coincidently, Arsenal had won the reverse fixture after losing back-to-back matches against Everton and Manchester United in December. So Arteta will be hoping for the same reaction this time around.

A win would grant Arsenal their first victory since the return of the international break but Ralph Hassenhuttl’s sides are also aiming for the same outcome. It is crucial the Gunners claim all three points to ensure the race for Champions League football still remains intact.

Follow all of the action from the game below with Chris Wheatley, Kaya Kaynak and Bailey Keogh who will bring you every moment up to and beyond kick-off at 8pm.
