Arsenal have won all four of their previous FA Cup ties against Southampton, going on to lift the trophy on the last three occasions in 1979, 2003 and 2017.

Southampton and Arsenal will both fancy their chances of progressing to the next round of the FA Cup with these two teams arriving at this game in good form. Ralph Hasenhuttl’s Saints are ticking over nicely, while the Gunners have rallied of late under Mikel Arteta.
