Arsenal and Southampton joint winners of Grounds Team of the Season award

Arsenal and Southampton share the accolade of having the best grounds in the Premier League, fending off competition from last year's winners Swansea City.

Arsenal's and Southampton's ground staff have been awarded the accolade of having the best pitches throughout the Premier League, with the award's organisers finding little to separate the two clubs.

The joint winners overcame competition from last year's victors Swansea City along with other nominated candidates Aston Villa and Cardiff City, with the shortlist compiled earlier this year.

The Saints' grounds team have been in the spotlight recently as their eye-catching designs went viral on social media last week, with the playing surface being broadcast on BT Sport when they hosted Everton.

Arsenal are still in contention for a fourth-place finish and an FA Cup final with Hull, while the Saints sit just outside of a Europa League place in only their second consecutive season since being promoted.
