[Video Goals] Southampton 1-1 Arsenal: Giroud Rescues Late Point For Sloppy Gunners

By on December 10, 2017

Olivier Giroud came off the bench to rescue Arsenal with a late equaliser to earn a 1-1 draw with Southampton at St Mary’s this afternoon.

It was another woeful start from the Gunners as Charlie Austin took full advantage of some shocking defending from Per Mertesacker to slot home the opening foal in the 2nd minute.

We dominated possession for much of the game but the hosts had the chances to extend their lead on the break with Nathan Redmond in particular wasting a great chance to make it 2-0.

The hosts were made to rue those missed chances as Arsenal snatched an equaliser in the 89th minute when substitute Olivier Giroud glanced home a header from an Alexis Sanchez cross to make it 1-1.

Neither team could force a late winner so it ended 1-1 which moves Arsenal up to fifth in the table and level on points with fourth-placed Liverpool.
