Arsenal’s struggles on the road this season continue, as they drew 1-1 against a solid Southampton side earlier today. Let’s see how the players rated …
No chance for goal and made some decent saves.
Excellent. Had Sanchez in his pocket for most of the game.
Another solid showing by one of the Premier Leagues most improved players.
van Dijk 7
Brilliantly marshalled a backline that stopped Arsenal creating many clear cut chances.
Good in defence and attack.
Romeu 9 ( MOTM )
Surely the best defensive mid outside the top six.
Like his midfield partner was superb. Broke up play and passed the ball beautifully.
Covered a massive amount of ground for his team.
Classy reverse pass for Austin goal, and caused The Gunners defence plenty of problems whenever the home side got forward.
Ok, needs to impose himself on games more though, as he has bags of talent.
Tidy finish for goal and maybe should of had at least one more. He’s that penalty box striker that The Saints have been crying out for all season.
Looked dangerous on the break.
Ok, just doesn’t inspire confidence the way he did in his Chelsea days though.
Followed up a sloppy display against Man United with another shocker here.
All over the shop for the first goal and looked nervy throughout.
Arsenal’s best central defender, now that is a sentence I never though I would write.
Had a lot of the ball down the right flank, but just couldn’t do anything with it. Looked shaky defensively at times.
Has been in really good form lately, but today he was back to his frustrating best.
A defensive midfielder that shows no appetite for defending.
Solid as always down the left.
Pushed and probed all game but just couldn’t land that killer blow.
Was poor for most of the game, but then popped up with a lovely cross for the equaliser.
Decent movement in first-half, but faded from the game in the second period.
Forgetting the fact everybody seems to want him to do well, he really didn’t contribute much after his introduction.
Arsenal’s saviour as he so often is. Took his goal brilliantly with a tidy flicked header past Forster.
