While some teams have enjoyed the start of their Premier League campaigns, the same cannot be said for Arsenal and Southampton. As the pair of clubs prepare to meet in London on Saturday, they have only a win between them in their first three EPL matches, a start both teams will be eager to turn around in this match.
Of course, that may be easier said than done. Injuries have cost both teams, with Southampton dealing with the added layer of adapting to a new manager in Claude Puel. The Saints will be hoping to have some degree of advantage, though, with Puel having learned at the feet of Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger as a key part of his title-winning side with AS Monaco in France in the late 80's. That kind of knowledge could give him an edge in creating a game plan to defeat a man he has close knowledge of, and could give this match an interesting charge that will make it a fascinating one to follow.
