Arsene Wenger explains Alexis Sanchez's poor display against Southampton

Arsene Wenger explains Alexis Sanchez's poor display against Southampton

"They have Charlie Austin back now, and of course they have players like Tadic, Redmond, Boufal who are all very strong offensively".

Ever since Arsenal's 3-1 home defeat to Manchester United, last Saturday, Alan Shearer has been inundated with messages from hysterical Gunners fans who were apoplectic for the former Newcastle United captain's analysis of their loss to Jose Mourinho's men.

Having scored just four Premier League goals and contributed three assists, with one coming in the 1-1 draw with Southampton, his output has diminished compared to recent campaigns. We played with many strikers.

Giroud now has 17 Premier League substitute goals to his name, the same number as similarly famed game-changers Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Nwankwo Kanu.

But the Germany global was left red-faced just two minutes into his return as he gifted Southampton the goal that allowed Pellegrino's side to control the first half.

The Saints got off to the ideal start as Charlie Austin combined well with Dusan Tadic before calmly slotting past Petr Cech from close range, 1-0.

Forster got down to his left superbly to deny Ramsey from Ozil's cutback to the edge of the area, while Lacazette shanked wildly over towards the end of a breathless first half.

Arsenal pressed forward with more goal after the restart, dominating possession, yet unable to penetrate a home defence that was demonstrating far more resilience than the Gunners' own back line.

Giroud signed a new contract at Arsenal in January and said in the summer that he was motivated to win more titles with the club.

Despite holding the ball for 67% of the match, the Gunners failed to find the back of the net, until, Olivier Giroud, just had to be him, didn't it? rescued Arsene Wenger and his side, coming off the bench to score in the 88th minute.
