Back to the prem and we face a saints side under new management.
Could be difficult but a game we must be winning to keep the challenge going.
Plenty rested on Thursday so no excuses about tiredness.

I watched the Saints the other day and thought they played reasonably well but were very light up-front. Hopefully, we will come away with another three points

Always the fear of the "dead cat bounce" and we've not got a great record down there for some reason but I think we'll be OK this time.

I'd drop Leno and have Cech back in.

I haven't been convinced by him at all. Much more to goalkeeping than shot-stopping.
No idea why he played a back 3 when he only put one recognised CB in there.
Poor at the back today.
It is this defensive fragility that'll mean we won't be title contenders any time soon.
Wenger out!!

Can`t say Southampton didn`t deserved it we were terrible like we were the last couple of games but somehow got through. Beaten by three headers pretty damning. What`s wrong with Aubi missed three good chances. Have to do better on Wednesday and beat Burnley on the weekend.

Catalogue of defensive errors mainly due to players not having time together.They played as if they had never met. Xhaka not coming goal side on the first ,Bellerin down for the second and Litch not picking up both times the ball over Kos head with Ings free. The last one keeper half comes ,goes back and sells himself. Players dropping llike flies as they Soton were allowed to commit follow through fouls.
Having said that we didn’t deserve much from it .We played a lacklustre game and Emery has to find a way to get Laca and Auba out together. Seriously worried about Mikhitarian and Iwobi at this level , squad players at best.
