Arsenal will have to receive its rival, Southampton, in order to open the new round in the English Premier League, as the fans of the Emirates Stadium will be eagerly waiting to see their team again.

Arsenal is seeking to make up for the points it lost in recent weeks in the English Premier League, which could severely affect its eligibility to win the English Premier League title.

Arsenal had fallen into the trap of a positive draw with Liverpool and then West Ham with the same score 2-2, thus losing four points in the title race, with its rival Manchester City approaching it after reducing the difference to four points.

Arsenal ranks first with 74 points, while Southampton, who enters this match with a new attempt to escape the fate of relegation, occupies the twentieth and last place with 23 points.
