FT: SOUTHAMPTON 3-2 ARSENAL
Our unbeaten run is over with a very poor result at a side struggling at the foot of the table. We shouldn’t be conceding 3 at a side that struggles to score goals particularly at home, and whilst I’m not despondent at the result, it does serve to highlight our defensive vulnerabilities that we may have been getting away with and reinforces the need for defensive recruitment in January. Whilst the first two goals both involve brilliant crosses and headers, both also involve the rusty Koscielny not getting tight enough to his man. The third came from us pushing for an equaliser and Leno failing to deal with a cross, something that needs addressing as this seems to be a weakness in his game. Other than their goals, and one disallowed they failed to create many clear cut chances. Offensively, I felt we had the better chances but were not ruthless or decisive enough in the final third.
