Well that was a pretty horrible night for Arsenal and all the Gooners watching around the world. We didn’t play badly exactly but we did struggle to get our fluent and incisive game going against a very good anbd determined Southampton side. The only real positive to take from this latest disappointment is that we did not lose.
But with Leicester, Man City, Tottenham and Man United all winning, the point from this draw is not a lot of use and it leaves the Gunners looking for a miracle if we are to win the Premier League this season.
THere was some action and some chances at both ends and the Saints keeper Forster made a couple of really good saves but it is hard to say that Arsenal really desreved any more than a point. The ref did not help as he was lenient and that played into the hands of the visitors and their pressing game but these are things you have to deal with if you want to be champions.
Arsenal are now left in our usual 4th place and if we do not see some serious upturn in fortune soon it is going to be another Wenger trophy.
