    We needed that win, imagine the reaction if we had lost! Not the best win but a win is a win & at this stage I'll take any win. I feel we were a bit unlucky not to get up more then 2-0, had a few good chances on the break which unfortunately we just couldn't finish.

    Well done to Eddie though, good pressure on the keeper to force a mistake & get us up. Congratulations Willock on his first PL goal I believe. Southampton played a lot better in the 2nd half & I never really felt comfortable during the 2nd tbh. Xhaka had a decent return to the lineup, Martinez impressed me with his fast distribution at times to nearly set up a goal for Auba. Good partnership by Mustafi & Holding at times. Ceballos was hopeless, can't believe he made it again in the starters.

    I still don't like our tactics we seem to do now for some reason, get the lead then sit back & defend in our box, we need to go for a 2nd goal before we do that stuff.

    Thought the all yellow kit looked nice

    How did we play? Couldn't watch the game, possession stats don't look great but seems like we created a few chances at least. Anyone have a particularly good game?

    I think majority on here agree that Saka, Holding, Xhaka and Eddie all played well.

    Martinez had little to do but he made an excellent double-save at 0-1.

    Didn’t watch it and don’t care how we played but I’m happy with the three points.

    Guess I'm slamming 3 IPAs 12 minutes before every game for the rest of the season now.

    We really are awful to watch. So slow and ponderous.

    I predicted a Southampton win having predicted a draw and a win for the Arsenal in the last two games. It's nice for the Arsenal to give us something to cheer rather than to jeer, not been happening much lately.

    We are a very gritty team these days...but not the good kind of gritty were we are backs against the wall, fighting like men to win...but we just look so lost in what we are trying to do at times, that all games turn into a scrap in a way :lol:

    Like what Arteta is trying to do, but man does he need better players,

    The 3 atb really counters Southamptons 442, good decision by Mikel to go with it. Really like the potential of Saka/Tierney on the left. KT's ability to play left back and that left sided CB in a 3 gives us the option to switch between a 433 and 343 in game, which is a really invaluable option to have. Should keep and eye on this for next season.

    This win was much needed but the performance makes it feels like congratulating your partner for going 3 months without cheating.

    What an atrocious game, we got lucky for the most part and some dogged displays from the players got us over the line. The 5 at the back thing was Emery ball at its worst and the team looked so disjointed...

    Anything but yellow should be banned as away kit. There's been some shocking stuff over the years.

    I thought we were in control and imposing for the most part. Don't know where this "poor performance" stuff comes from. It's blazing hot (32C) and there's no atmosphere, tricking you into thinking it's mediocre. Soton are a decent side and Ings is on terrific form, yet we kept them quiet.

    I was pleased to have a good referee & a few good calls for us finally, first time in a long time I've seen our opposition get a red card!
