It was the same old story for Arsenal against Southampton on Sunday as they were held to a 1-1 draw by their hosts. The stalemate means that the Gunners are 14 points short of leaders Manchester City having played a game more, which has pretty much brought an end to their slim title hopes.

The game itself was a direct antithesis to their loss against Manchester United last weekend. Arsenal created a huge amount of chances only to be stopped on the line by the marvellous David de Gea. On Sunday, Arsenal were not able to be toothless with their finishing as they rarely threatened to open their opponents up.
