3. Don’t Be Afraid To Attack Arsenal!
Arsenal will be a team that will constantly attack the Saints and keep them under pressure for most of the game with their slick passing and amazing playmaking abilities.
However, Ruben Selles’ side also loves to play attacking football and therefore the Saints shouldn’t be afraid to play on the front foot against the Gunners, despite their lack of goalscoring threat.
One of Arsenal’s weaknesses is the lack of presence of William Saliba in the team.
Saliba is a brilliant defender and automatically relaxes the other defenders, but his absence leaves a massive hole in that defence, which Rob Holding struggles to fill.
This causes the Arsenal back-line to look very shaky, which we saw against both Liverpool and West Ham as both of those teams had many great chances to go and beat the North London outfit.
If the game becomes scrappy, the Saints could also try to exploit the height of striker, Paul Onoachu, by crossing a lot of balls into the box for him.
