Join us as Southampton seek to recreate their recent win against Arsenal at home, this time in the Premier League.

LIVE
90'
FT: A great performance from Arsenal confirms their current run of good form and gets another well needed 3 points for the Gunners.
90'
+2: Arsenal pressing the life out of Southampton in the dying minutes of the game.
90'
+5 mins to play.
89'
Looks like it's too little too late from Southampton who have mounted a few promising late attacks.
85'
Ward-Prowse fires it past the wall on target but Leno leaps to push the ball away from danger. Great save.
84'
Southampton have a FK just a few yards out of the box...
82'
Luiz loses control and Che Adams almost takes full advantage but is stopped by Leno who comes out of his net to kill the danger.
79'
Nlundulu brings down Luiz in the box trying to recover the ball to shoot.
76'
Partey comes off for Elneny.
72'
Lacazette taps in Saka's cross in front of the net and collides with the post on his way down.
69'
Willian comes on as Smith-Rowe comes off instead of the originally intended Pepe due to discomfort.
65'
Danny Ings beats 3 inside the area but can't get off the cross or shot in time as the ball goes out for a GK.
64'
Now it's SOU' turn to threaten goal. Arsenal defending deep waiting for an opportunity to dispossess.
59'
Soarez pulls off a great run from the left wing deep into the box and his shot is barely deflected away.
58'
Xhaka handball goes unseen by the ref much to the Southampton bench's anger.
55'
Bellerin probably takes one touch to many running into the box from the wing and crosses it in just too high for any of the Arsenal shirts waiting in the middle to make contact with the ball.
52'
Nothing comes of the FK and Xhaka steps on Che Adams' foot while trying to recover the ball.
51'
Saka goes down and earns a FK on the wing outside the box. There was enough contact there to warrant a FK but no card.
49'
Southampton build up the play and pass it to Walcott in a central position outside the box who tries his luck to little effect. Easy save for Leno.
48'
Quiet start to the second part so far. Southampton in possession and passing it around the back line.
46'
And we are back for the second half
45'
HT: Arsenal just in front going into the break after a positive performance from Arteta's men.
45'
Diallo tries his luck from a good 30 yards out but scuffs it as the ball rolls into Leno's hands. Arsenal doing a good job of frustrating Southampton attack.
42'
Vokins scuffles with Lacazette in the box who goes down. Ref says there's not enough in it.
38'
SAKA PUTS ARSENAL AHEAD! Mccarthy came out of the box but Saka takes a simple touch to beat him and put it in the back of the net unchallenged.
35'
Another great play from Armstrong sees him break into the box beating Lacazette only to put in a poor low cross that is easily cleared.
33'
Lacazette is just onside as he breaks down the wing. His pass inside goes between two Arsenal players and is cleared by the SOU defence.

Lacazette is just onside as he breaks down the wing. His pass inside goes between two Arsenal players and is cleared by the SOU defence.
28'
Armstrong tries to finesse the ball to the back post from inside the area after a nice 1-2 but can't curl it enough and the shot goes wide.
24'
Leno to the rescue! Che Adams heads one on target from inside the box but Leno reacts quickly to clear the danger.
19'
Ings delivers the ball into the box which is poked onto the keeper and into safe hands.
18'
Bellerin booked for a challenge that was more than just a little bit late.
17'
Walcott comes close! He cut inside after a sprint but could only manage to shoot wide under pressure.
14'
If it's not already, Pepe's red card nightmare against Leeds will be soon forgotten if he keeps up this kind of performance. He looks dangerous every time he's on the ball.
10'
Great football from both sides so far! Arsenal have already had two chances from mistakes in Southampton's defence however...
7'
Pepe equalises!!!! He had to take 3 or 4 touches inside the area but he steadied himself and beat the keeper with a low shot to the far corner.
5'
Saka makes a dangerous run into the area but his cross is blocked at the front post and put out for a corner.

Armstrong GOAL! Southampton go ahead! Fantastic strike from the edge of the area puts the home team ahead. He hit it first time from the corner with unbeatable power.
2'
And now at the other end! Danny Ings gets on the end of a header but heads it into the back of a defender to win a corner.

Lightning start from Arsenal who almost capitalise on a mistake at the back from Southampton, Mccarthy had to stop Lacazette from point-blank range.

We are off!
Prev.
Players on the pitch, not long now!
Prev.
Only one goal in their last meeting and there are a fair few changes since the last game. Who will make the difference tonight?
Prev.
Arteta gets a chance to redeem himself and the Gunners from their recent 1-0 loss to Southampton in the FA Cup. Can he reverse that result tonight?

Lots of history on the pitch tonight for Walcott who is playing against his former team...
Prev.
No Auba tonight for the Gunners as the player is still out due to family reasons. Tierney still struggling with a calf injury.

SOUTHAMPTON XI: McCarthy, Valery, Bednarek, Stephens, Vokins, Armstrong, Diallo, Ward-Prowse, Walcott, Adams, Ings.
