Southampton 1-1 Arsenal

A late goal from Olivier Giroud meant it finished 1-1 at St. Mary's. Charlie Austin scored his fourth goal in as many games for Saints.

Reaction:

Charlie Austin: 

“It’s a massive sense of frustration. We started off like a house on fire, with four chances in the first seven minutes, but we needed to get the second goal.

“I feel like I’m going to get chance after chance, so I’m putting myself in the right positions and luckily I’ve put the ball in the net.
"I should’ve scored the one when I went across Cech. As a kid growing up I was always told to go across goal, but he’s made a good save.

“I was delighted with the goal, but it was just instinct really. It got us a great start, but it’s one of them where we should’ve got the three points.

“We’ve got one and in hindsight, if we’d drawn against Man City we’d be [four games] unbeaten.

“We’ll go again – we’ve got big games coming up and a quick turnaround with Leicester at home, so hopefully we can give a good performance again.”
