I'm pretty sure they didn't win this fixture last year us in the league. They beat us in the leaugue cup.

maybe so. I was looking at flashscore head to head on my phone and unless I click on the fixture it just says the result :)

Ha ha fair enough. I just Googled it and that result does come up first. We actually won 2.1 with a 94th minute winner from cazorla. Remember watching the results in the pub now.

I think we should win this one. Not sure how we have managed to get 3 home games in a row

I'm guessing you were due an away game when FA Cup ties were played before the internationals but the team you were gonna play were still in it :D

Arsenal are in a winning mood. Should be another easy affair.

1-0 Southampton!

Mix-up between Mustafi and Cech. Although it looks the former's fault. Should be going to the ball and knocking that in to Row Z out of danger. Cech can't come and claim that.

Mustafi fully at fault there. Wasn't concentrating at all when the cross came in.

Funny goal. What happened to the man's brain?

in the blink of an eye, Aubameyang levels for Arsenal.

Great passing from Nelson and Welbeck, who flicks it in to Aubameyang's path to poke in past McCarthy.

Welbeck isn't good enough to score by himself so he needs the help of a deflection. 2-1 to Arsenal!

Haha! just as the commentator says Charlie Austin has scored every time he's played Arsenal, the striker delivers the goods tapping in from close range. 2-2!

Wilshere has been quite poor since he came on. Sruggled to keep up with the play. ANd now he's lost his head xD

Stephens sent off. Wilshere booked.

Looked like Wilshere was ripping Stephens' shirt and the Saints player has reacted badly to it.

Elneny sent off as well! Haha love this. Totally unnecessary from him, pushed a Saints player in the face xD

If I was standing on the street and somebody was trying to pull me down to the ground by yanking my shirt I'd say that's as violent as being shoved. 

What Wilshere was doing should be at least as much of a red as what Stephens did.

Yet another victory... We're the team on form right now! ;)

Both the reds were a ridiculous case of how the "violent conduct" rule is interpreted. Any sort of reaction, however mild, is seen as "violent". It's a stupid way of interpreting it but it's not a new way of interpreting it so can't say it's a surprise with either situation. Hopefully they change it in the future but it's unlikely.

As for the game, good for Welbeck to get a couple of goals and nice to see Aubameyang continue his scoring form. 6 league goals in 7 league games.

Agreed. Thought a yellow would have been sufficient in both cases.
