As expected, Koscielny misses out. Otherwise we're the same as against Man United.

Remember we lost 4-0 here last season out of nowhere.

Had so many humiliating defeats it's not even that embarrassing anymore grinning smiley

Southampton have won 16 of the 39 meetings against us at St. Mary's. We have won 14.

Cech captains the side in Koscielny's absence.

Southampton on the front foot early on. Bertrand overlaps Redmond and whips a low cross in but we get it away. Oxlade-Chamberlain tries to dribble out from the back and is fouled.

Redmond lays the ball back to Davis but he side foots it high and wide.

We haven't won in the Premier League at St. Mary's since 2003, jeez.

3 minutes in before we finally got a foot on the ball, but we were playing some good, fluid stuff.

We didn't win the league in 2003



- until Wenger moves on, they'll always be the also-rans in the major competitions. A club in elite purgatory. Always good enough to make it to the big race, never fast or smart enough to push over the finish line in first place. That's all about the manager. Until he changes, Arsenal fans will continue to celebrate glorious failure.

Ozil's misplaced pass allows Southampton to counter, but Cech is down low well to claim Gabbiadini's low cross.

Welbeck plays Ozil through with a first time pass. Ozil tries to put the ball across goal but it's cleared.

Ramsey with a good ball to Ozil, who plays in Oxlade-Chamberlain first time. Ox cuts inside but his shot is blocked, as is Ramsey's follow up.

I assume a lot of draws and a few losses

Xhaka's long passing is beautiful.

Alexis threads Gibbs through but his first touch is awful and goes straight out of play.

Cedric is allowed to cross the ball completely unchallenged, but fortunately Mustafi clears.

Need to do more to stop the cross, there was about three Arsenal players over there.

Welbeck slips Ozil through but he is tackled excellent by young Jack Stephens. Ozil let the ball come across him though, should've took it on earlier.

Really open game now.

Mustafi with a brilliant tackle on Tadic but it is given as a foul.

Looked like it may have been a bit overzealous to be fair.

Ridiculous giveaway from Monreal under absolutely no pressure.

Ball eventually makes its way to Redmond, who tw*ts one from distance, but Cech makes another good save.

Welbeck takes a great first touch to get away from Ward-Prowse, but is cynically pulled back. First booking.

Alexis (I think?) plays a great ball through to Bellerin, who floats in a good cross but Welbeck doesn't make enough of a contact.

Half time 0-0.

We're too easy to cut open. We've played some good passing football but the final ball has been lacking.

Bellerin gives the ball away. The ball is worked back to Davis again on the edge of the area and, again, he side foots well over.

Alexis chips a lovely ball over the top to Ozil, but he attempts some sort of scorpion kick thing and completely misses it.

I spoke too soon! Get in!

Ozil plays a first time pass through to Alexis, who twists his man and finishes past Forster.

His first Premier League goal since February 11th!

Corner is played short to Xhaka. He has a go from distance, it is deflected and saved by Forster. The rebound falls to Mustafi, who's cross/ shot is deflected behind, but the offside flag is raised.

2-0, game over.
