Arsenal 3 Southampton 0 LIVE REACTION: Lacazette, Odegaard and Gabriel have enough goals to seal three vital points


Much to the relief of Mikel Arteta and all Gooners around the world, Arsenal are back on their way to victory after a difficult week losing back-to-back Premier League matches against Manchester United and Everton.

Moreover, they did not need Pierre Emerick-Aubameyang to do it either.

Southampton came out of the blocks, forcing Aaron Ramsdale to make a few saves in the early stages of the game.

But after 21 minutes of play, Alexandre Lacazette was on hand to guide Bukayo Saka’s cross in front of Willy Caballero, 40, between the visitors’ sticks.

Then six minutes later Martin Odegaard scored Arsenal’s second and third in three games, which calmed the nerves of home fans.

The Saints were down but certainly weren’t out and if it hadn’t been for some huge Ramsdale saves in the second 45 Southampton might have picked up a goal.

But when Gabriel jumped high to lead his header into Caballero’s net just minutes after the Brazilian’s previous effort was ruled out for offside, all three points were well and truly in the bag.

Thanks for listening this afternoon and I hope the community enjoys the rest of their weekend!
