Wenger’s men drop more points on the road yet again
Arsenal looked like the Christmas fixture list had finally caught up with them after a terrible display at St Mary’s saw them lose 2-0 to Southampton.
The victory for Ronald Koeman’s side sees them confirm their position in the Champions League qualification spots – they are now fourth place and just one point behind United in third.
The Gunners meanwhile are four points adrift of United and three behind Southampton and will rue a result that could have serious repercussions for their European aspirations at the end of the season.
Below we detail the Arsenal players ratings following another dismal defeat.
GK: Wojciech Szczesny – 2
Was responsible for both goals conceded but was hardly helped by a lack of protection in front of him.
But could have conceded a lot more were it not for some poor Southampton finishing.
RB: Mathieu Debuchy – 5
Struggled as the game progressed and was rightly replaced late on when Arsenal were chasing the game after being partly at fault for Saints second.
