Southampton v Arsenal Odds: Walcott all the rage in the goalscorer betting markets

Theo WalcottThere is live Premier League action from the St Mary's Stadium on New Year's Day as Southampton take on Arsenal in the day's 5.30pm kick-off. These sides' two games on Saturday produced 16 of the top-flight's 35 goals as Saints held Stoke to an impressive 3-3 draw at the Britannia, while the Gunners hammered Newcastle 7-3.

The bookies clearly fancy goals will be on the menu once more here and it is hard to disagree as both sides play an attractive, yet far from secure, style of play. It is Arsenal who are 7/10 odds on favourites to take all three points with PaddyPower and Arsene Wenger's side are looking like genuine top-four challengers once more.

They have won their last four league games in a row after an enthralling win over Newcastle on Saturday. They were sensational to watch with the ball at their feet but they remain defensively suspect and far too brittle at the back, so it is no surprise to see both teams to score is 4/7 on this week.

Rickie Lambert could be the man to grab that Saints goal after he scored one and set up the other two in the draw with Stoke at the weekend. Tottenham's Jermain Defoe is the only Englishman to have scored more goals than Lambert in the top-flight this season and Lambert looks decent value to score Saints' first goal at 3/1 in the latest betting with paddypower.

Southampton's attacking threat is obvious as they managed to score three at the Britannia, where Stoke had only conceded four times all season previously. They have however lost all of their meetings with top-seven opposition this season, including a 6-1 shellacking at the Emirates against Arsenal earlier this term.

Theo Walcott was on the scoresheet against his old club that day and he has been proving his worth as a goalscorer to Arsenal all season. Walcott grabbed a hat-trick in the win over Newcastle on Saturday to take his tally to 14 for the season and he is likely to provide interest on Tuesday as he is 5/1 to score first, 13/2 to score two or more and 25/1 to score another hat-trick.

Goals are clearly expected as over 3.5 goals is as short as 6/4 for this Southampton v Arsenal clash currently, although we could be in for some late drama as Saints have conceded eight goals in the final 15 minutes of games this season, including a dramatic late equaliser against Stoke on Saturday. Arsenal on the other hand have scored 11 in the final 15 minutes of games and the last goal to be scored after the 76th minute on Tuesday can be backed at 10/11.

It is Arsenal who are ultimately favourites to land a fifth league win in a row and it is no surprise as Southampton, who are 4/1 to take all three points, have won just one of their last six and are right in the relegation mix. It could be an entertaining affair though and the correct score of 4-3 to Arsenal can be backed at a juicy 75/1.
