Another disappointing day for Arsenal, and yet again we come away from Southampton with just one point. The Gunners had 67% possession as usual and 11 shots at goal, but yet again we just couldn’t score more than one goal, and that was right at the end. I suppose, like Wenger, we should be happy we managed to salvage a draw in the end….
Petr Cech 6
Cech had more to do than last week but was let down by his defenders again. No wonder he was upset with them after the game..
Nacho Monreal 5
Not his usual solid performance and was not concentrating early on when Austin scored.
Per Mertesacker 3
We may as well have started with just two at the back, and it was little surprise when he was taken off.
Laurent Koscielny 4
It is definitely time for Wenger to bring in another centre-back as it looks like Koss is not the Boss any more.
Sead Kolašinac 5
Tried one driving run to try and get a quick equaliser but he is another that looks like he is losing his mojo after his great start to the season.
Hector Bellerín 3
I can’t see Barcelona coming back with a big money offer after his recent performances. Needs a wake-up call.
Granit Xhaka 4
Was not the worst player on the pitch for a change, but wasn’t far off.
Aaron Ramsey 6
Had Arsenal’s best chance other than the goal but Forster did well to save it. One of our liveliest performers and will be missed for the next few games.
Alexis Sanchez 4
He couldn’t get past the Southampton players and gave another headless chicken performance. It looks more and more like he wants out.
Mesut Özil 7
Ozil was our best player yet again, but that doesn’t say a lot on a flat day like that one.
Alexandre Lacazette 6
Laca looked dangerous early on but with service at a premium he looked forlorn and was just waiting to get taken off.
Danny Welbeck 4
He didn’t really get involved
Jack Wilshere 6
Was aggressive when he came on and was definitely better than Xhaka. Hopefully he will get a run in the side now with Ramsey out.
Olivier Giroud 6
He came on, he scored. Nothing else to see here…
