Southampton 1-1 Arsenal: 5 Talking Points

Olivier Giroud was on target when Arsenal won 2-0 at Southampton back in May

Everton had come on the cusp of a £40m move for Giroud in the last transfer window, but he made a late decision to snub the offer after he was convinced to stay by Arsene Wenger.

But the Germany global was left red-faced just two minutes into his return as he gifted Southampton the goal that allowed Pellegrino's side to control the first half.

Olivier Giroud was the hero for Arsenal in their 1-1 draw with Southampton thanks to his late equaliser.

This time Tadic delivered a through ball from near the halfway line, sending Austin into space with a clear run on goal, but the forward placed his shot too close to keeper Petr Cech who was given the chance to save.

Forster got down to his left superbly to deny Ramsey from Ozil's cutback to the edge of the area, while Lacazette shanked wildly over towards the end of a breathless first half.

"We were relentless, after a hard start we were caught cold and overall it was a windy, rainy afternoon against a team who played well and were quick on the counter-attack".


Just past the hour mark Oriol Romeu nearly shocked Arsenal with a second goal for the hosts when he let loose from the edge of the box with a zipping shot that had Cech beat, only to clanf off the crossbar.

The result meant Arsenal missed out on the opportunity to replace Liverpool in the top four, while Southampton would have been glad of a greater cushion between themselves and the bottom three than the five points they now enjoy.

Giroud now has 17 Premier League goals as a substitute - a joint divisional record alongside ex-United hero Ole Gunner Solskjaer's in terms of a tally for a single club - and Wenger paid tribute to the 31-year-old France international's mental strength.

- Arsenal have conceded 32 Premier League goals away from home in 2017.

Olivier Giroud rescued a point for Arsenal with a glancing header two minutes from time at St Mary's.
