Southampton host second-placed Arsenal in the last of the Premier League’s festive fixtures on Boxing Day (19:45), with the hosts desperate to halt their winless run in the English top-flight.

Ronald Koeman’s Saints have lost four of their last five games; falling eight points behind the top four, so the Dutch manager will be hoping key striker Graziano Pelle can rediscover his goalscoring boots at St Mary’s Stadium tonight to clinch an all-important three points for the home faithful.

Meanwhile the Gunners; who have won their last three league outings in a row, are reaping the benefits of star striker Olivier Giroud’s sensational form in front of goal, with the France international bagging six goals in his last four appearances in all competitions under delighted boss Arsene Wenger.

Despite their differing form; both Pelle and Giroud will play crucial roles in tonight’s feisty festive fixture, so here’s how both forwards match up so far this season…
