Saints arguably the better side against the league leaders…
Southampton 2-2 Arsenal: Player ratings
- 01 Wojciech Szczesny – 6
Beaten at his near post for the first goal, and had a few other shaky moments.
- 03 Bacary Sagna – 5
For the first time all season, looked like an ageing fullback, thanks to 18-year-old wonderkid Luke Shaw overlapping down Southampton’s left flank on countless occasions.
- 04 Per Mertesacker – 7
It’s not often Arsenal concede two goals in a match, but it wasn’t the fault of the giant German. Southampton were very good.
- 06 Laurent Koscielny – 6
Made one excellent interception, and was let down by his midfielders in front of him.
- 17 Nacho Monreal – 4
Will almost definitely lose his place for Gibbs, after struggling badly at St. Mary’s. Was at fault for the first goal, too.
