“Judging off how Arsenal played against Man United last week – even though they were defeated – it’s hard not to see them being Saints here,” Ince told the Daily Express.
“It’s good to see Charlie Austin back on the scoresheet, so maybe he can find a goal for the home side, but I believe Arsene Wenger’s side will dominate this one.”
Arsenal finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a Champions League spot.
The Gunners scored seven times in victories at Southampton in the FA Cup and the Premier League last term.
Southampton managed to win 2-0 at Arsenal in the League Cup at the start of the 2016-17 season.
