Arsenal failed to win yet another Premier League game as they drew with Southampton today.
The Gunners have been on a poor run of form and they lost three of their previous league games.
They needed to beat this high-flying Southampton side, unfortunately, it was not to be.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finally scored another league goal from open play and Bukayo Saka was in fine form. Here is the Arsenal player ratings.
Bernd Leno – 6
Nothing spectacular from him. Saved some stinging shots well and picked the ball out of the net.
Rob Holding – 5
Struggled with the change from a back four to a back three while defending. But he almost scored the winner for Arsenal, the post stood in the way.
Gabriel Magalhaes – 3
An unnecessary red card to spoil Arsenal’s game plan. Undid all the good things he may have done.
Kieran Tierney – 4
Made it easy for Walcott to score and just kept crossing the ball when there was no one to score.
Ainsley Maitland-Niles – 5
He let down the fans that wanted to see him play. Did ok defensively, but he didn’t look too comfortable when in possession.
Dani Ceballos – 6
He looked like he could have made things happen, but then he had to do too much defensive work and that limited his creative role.
Mohamed Elneny – 5
Was his usual busy self, but this game needed a midfielder that could offer more than short passes here and there.
Bukayo Saka – 8
He is Arsenal’s best player at the moment, his moment of brilliance gliding through three players set up Arsenal’s goal.
Nicolas Pepe – 6
Had a good first half, but he was affected by the red card and was anonymous after the break.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang – 7
Finally got a goal from open play, not much more we can ask for.
Eddie Nketiah – 6
Set up Aubameyang for the goal, subbed off after the red card. But he did well and will get more chances.
David Luiz – 6
Brought on after the red card and he helped Arsenal see out the game without conceding another goal.
Joe Willock – 5
Helped Arsenal defend the draw, maybe he should have helped with creating the winner instead.
Cedric Soares – N/A
