Arsenal wins their 150th Premier League win at the Emirates Stadium (226 games). They’ll be the only side to have won 150+ games at two different stadiums in the competition.
This will be Arsenal’s fifth consecutive match played at home in all competitions. The last time they had such a run was in April 2006, with the fifth and final game ending in a 5-0 victory versus Aston Villa.
The Gunners are unbeaten in their last 22 home league games against Southampton (W16 D6), since a 0-1 loss in November 1987. However, in all competitions Saints have won two of their last five visits to the Emirates (D1 L2), winning League Cup ties in 2014-15 and 2016-17.
