Game info Southampton x Arsenal


With the qualification guaranteed in the Europa League, Arsenal returns to the field this Sunday, October 23, to try to maintain its advantage in the leadership of the English Championship. They will have Southampton as an obstacle. The match, held at St. Mary's in Southampton, is part of the schedule for the thirteenth round of the Premier League in its 2022/2023 season. The start is set for 13:00 UTC.


How does the Premier League 2022/2023 work?


The most visible national tournament in the world, the Premier League, has 20 clubs that play 38 rounds. Duel in turn and return throughout the season. Whoever accumulates the most points wins the cup. In principle, six places are awarded in international competitions. The top four guarantee a direct place in the Champions League group stage. The fifth goes to the Europa League. The sixth goes to the European Conference League. The last three are relegated to the Championship, the Second Division.



Southampton managed to put on Wednesday, October 19, a complete stop in their five-game winning streak in the Premier League. After four defeats and a draw, they overcame Bournemouth, defending an unbeaten run of six matches, by 1-0, playing on opposing soil. The goal was scored by Adams, who was assisted by Perraud, nine minutes into the first half.


Having been outnumbered so early, Bournemouth searched for a reaction. He spent more time with the ball (53%) and developed, throughout the match, a greater number of opportunities for submission (15 to 9). However, there was equality in the rate of correct shots. Each team landed three shots in the direction of the opposing goal.


The triumph took Southampton to 11 points (three wins, two draws, and six defeats), allowing them to take fourteenth place in the Premier League leaderboard. From the points above, Wolverhampton is the eighteenth-placed and first team in the relegation zone. As a principal, however, the performance is lower. Southampton is eighteenth in the Premier League home rankings. Of the 15 points he played in St. Mary's, he won five (one win, two draws, and two defeats). He scored six goals and conceded seven.



Arsenal has been left out of the Premier League's midweek schedule. The match against Manchester City, vice-leaders of the tournament, which would take place on Wednesday, October 19, was postponed as it had to fulfill on Thursday, October 20, a commitment with PSV, from the Netherlands, for the second round of the Europa League group stage. A game that had been postponed due to Queen Elizabeth II's funeral ceremonies.


Even using a team full of reserves, the Gunners won by 1 to 0. It was little in the face of the superiority of the London team in the match. Arsenal had the pelota 61% of the time, creating 25 opportunities to shoot. Got eight on target. He scored with Xhaka, who received a pass from Tomiyasu before finishing in the 26th minute of the finals. The Eindhoven club made just four shots in the match. One on target.


The result took Arsenal to 12 points in the competition, which ensured their qualification for the knockout stage. It remains only to define whether in the first or second placement of the key. In the Premier League, they beat Leeds 1-0 in the previous round, advancing to 27 points (nine wins and one defeat). He opened up a four-point lead over Manchester City and Tottenham, his closest pursuers. As a visitor, he played for 15 points and won 12 (four wins and one loss). He scored ten goals and conceded three.
