As discussed in Dr Zoidberg’s review of last weekend’s action, we were obviously very disappointed that Stoke could only manage a late draw, thereby ruining our 15 to 1 pick. However, we fancy a trip to Southampton tomorrow to get things off to a good start again.
Given everything we’ve seen in recent weeks, this should be a cracker of a game with plenty of chances at both ends. Like their North London rivals, Arsenal setup well for away games and their Southampton old boys, Walcott and Ox, should strike fear into the home defence. Arsenal are in a confident mood and should have the quality to win with ease. However, Southampton showed their attacking ability at the Britannia Stadium on Saturday so Arsenal are likely to need two or three goals to win the game.
Dr Zoidberg loves the way Arsenal are playing at the moment: they have a fantastic midfield and a centre forward gunning for an extra ten grand a week in wages. What a combination! Southampton had a good result at Stoke, in particular scoring three goals, but it was a weakened back line for the home side and I feel they’ll suffer under this step up in class.
