Southampton v Arsenal

Postby Hams » Sat Jan 25, 2014 2:09 pm

Southampton drew their last game 2-2 away at Sunderland despite being 2-0 ahead in the first half.

The troubles continue for the Saints with Pablo Osvaldo now banned for attacking his team mate Jose Fonte in training.

Arsenal won their last match 2-0 against Fulham to stay top of the table and also beat Coventry 4-0 in last nights cup match.

Any comments or predictions?

Draws against Man City, Man United, and Newcastle tells you that Southampton can be a difficult team to beat at times. Their home record is decent, so I don't think this one will be an easy victory for Arsenal.

I looked at Arsenal's team against Coventry and wondered if Arsene Wenger is possibly playing a slightly dangerous game in fielding such a strong cup team. There is always the risk of injuries, and it is extra games fatiguing the best players.

I've been impressed with Arsenal's ability to win these 'headache' ties so far this season, but I'm forecasting a hiccup here. Southampton 1 Arsenal 1.

Poor perormance from Arsenal. Picked it up i teh second half ,but all the momentum was lost once Flamini gpt himself carded!
Ozil picked up his game a bit in this one ,i guess he had to really because he's been shocking! That being said for the money and the hype given to him he was nowhere near the quality .
We drop a point when we could have lost quite easily.

FT

Southampton 2-2 Arsenal
1-0 Jose Fonte 21
1-1 Giroud 48
1-2 Cazorla 52
2-2 Lallana 54

The Gunners run of 5 wins in a row has come to an end as Flamini sees Red.

Any comments on this draw?

I undestand that Arsenal turned up late at St Marys as they were stuck in traffic.

Have also just heard Arsene Wenger say on the radio that he thought it was harsh to send off Flamini.

Is the Gunners boss right to complain?
