Southampton 0-1 Arsenal (half-time)

It's being called a 'blistering start' to the campaign, but the Saints gave Arsenal a run for their money at St Mary's in the first 45 minutes, forcing numerous corners.

Nevertheless, it was the Gunners who took the lead, courtesy of Xhaka's right foot. White's right wing cross was guided home by the Switzerland international, who can't stop scoring all of a sudden.

Unfortunately, Arsenal couldn't add to their lead, despite a couple of penalty shouts. In fact, Saka got booked for feigning a foul in the box, so the Gunners need to tread carefully when it comes to go down in the box.

Ramsdale 7 - dealt with everything he had to
White 8 - an assist and a solid performance
Saliba 7 - tidy
Gabriel 7 - not really tested much
Tomiyasu 8 - strong in the tackle
Saka 7 - causing problems
Odegaard 9 - brilliant defensively and offensively
Partey 8 - dominant
Xhaka 9 - superb goal and precise passing
Martinelli 8 - a thorn in the Saints' side
Gabriel 8 - unlucky not to have scored so far.
