Four Things We Learned From Southampton 1-1 Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez Arsenal Southampton

Petr Cech admitted Arsenal didn't deserve to beat Southampton as Olivier Giroud snatched a late 1-1 draw and insisted the Gunners were fortunate to not be 3-0 down early on as he called for his team-mates to be "ready to compete" when they step out onto the pitch.

The striker left it late, too, superbly glancing his effort into the corner of Southampton's goal with just two minutes remaining to prevent his side from slipping into their second successive Premier League defeat.

"When I'm at home, maybe you think, 'What's going to happen?" "But in the last two weeks, unfortunately we dropped points in the last two games for bad starts - we are caught straight away".

Arsene Wenger opted for a change on 72 minute as Lacazette made way for Olivier Giroud as the Gunners went for a more direct approach.

Wenger said he was satisfied enough with the point Arsenal took given they had been behind for so long. "Because if you take him on you have another guy who is good who will not play, it is as simple as that".

He said: "I felt that the Manchester United game played a big part in the head of our defenders". The answer is in the authority of the referee.

"We were lucky to get a point, even if we deserved to get one in the end, because we put them under pressure".

"First, it has to be in the head of the players to respect the game and to play".

Giroud's goal was his 17th as a substitute in the Premier League, tying the record held by former United forward Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
