Arsene Wenger is still going through a lot of problems due to lengthy injury list and tonight they will host very dangerous squad Southampton. Ronald Koeman's team conceded only 9 goals in this season.
Arsenal won only one out of their previous 5 matches at the Emirates and it wouldn't be a surprise to see the Saints to pick up all three points here. Szczesny, Debuchy, Arteta, Wilshere, Diaby, Ozil and Walcott are injured and unavailable for this match. However, atmosphere in the team is boosted a little bit after their away victory against WBA.
Southampton was having a season from their dreams but the defending champions Manchester City were the ones to end it, demolishing them 3 - 0 at Saint Marry Stadium. They failed to score away from their stadium just once this season with goal difference 7 - 5.
Arsenal is unbeaten in their last 9 EPL matches against the Saints but Southampton have already won at the Emirates this season in the Capital One Cup.
Chelsea v Tottenham Hotspur
Our prediction: Chelsea to Win and Both Teams to Score 21/10 at SkyBet - Bet Now

The Blues have won all of their matches at Stamford Bridge this season with goal difference 15 - 3. Jose Mourinho's squad is leading the EPL race with 33 points, without a single defeat so far. Their biggest problem for this match will be Diego Costa's suspension but still they are heavy favorites against the Spurs who showed a lot of improvement in last couple of weeks as they have two consecutive wins in EPL, beating Everton and Hull.
Tottenham is currently 7th on the EPL table with 20 points. Their manager Mauricio Pochettino criticized his defenders and their performances so far as the team conceded 18 goals already. Eriksen, Soldado and Lamela are very dangerous in the attack.
Tottenham suffered a heavy loss last time they visited Stamford Bridge ( 4 - 0 ) in March. The last match they have won against the Blues as guests was in 1990 when Gary Lineker scored the winning goal in a 2 - 1 win.
Sunderland v Manchester City
Our prediction: City to win 5/10 at Bet365 - Bet Now
Special offer: 18/1 on Chelsea, Arsenal, Everton and Man City all to win at Paddy Power - Bet Now
Sunderland's start of this year's EPL campaign was pretty unexpected for the club administration. They won only 2 out of 13 matches so far, having 8 draws. Inefficiency of their strikers is marked as the biggest problem so far as they scored only 12 goals. They are not losing games at the Stadium of Light easily this season, losing only one so far, including 5 draws and 1 victory. Steven Fletcher is the only offensive player showing decent performances as he scored 4 goals so far.
The Citizens finally started playing on high level and remind on their playstyle from last year when they have won the title. They demolished Southampton during the weekend as visiting team 3 - 0 and Pellegrini stated that they need to win this match if they want to reduce the gap from Chelsea. Some of key players are still injured (David Silva, Dzeko, Kolarov and Kompany) while Mangala is suspended for this match. Aguero is probably playing the best football of his life and Montenegrin striker Stevan Jovetic is also in good shape.
Last time City managed to win a game against Sunderland at Stadium of Light was in 2008.
