Arsenal 1-2 Southampton (half time)

The pressure appears to be affecting Arsenal, judging by this mistake-ride half.

Attempting to play out from the back, Ramsdale gifted Alcarez with the opener for the visitors.

The lead was soon doubled, as Alvarez fed ex-Gunner Walcott, who netted with ease.

At least, Saka managed an assist for Martinelli to reduce the arrears.

However, the damage had been done and the Xhaka-less Arsenal had a mountain to climb metaphorically, especially as Vieira offered so little compared to the Switzerland international.

Arteta must instill belief in the process or the title challenge will be effectively over.
