Super sub Olivier Giroud spares Arsenal's blushes with late equaliser against Southampton

Super sub Olivier Giroud spares Arsenal's blushes with late equaliser against Southampton

That was Giroud's 17th goal for Arsenal after coming off the bench, which equals former Manchester United frontman Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Premier League record for a single club.

The striker left it late, too, superbly glancing his effort into the corner of Southampton's goal with just two minutes remaining to prevent his side from slipping into their second successive Premier League defeat.

Certainly time wasting isn't the prime reason Arsenal didn't take all three points at St. Mary's, but Wenger is one of several big names bosses angered by the lack of time policing in the sport. "We kept going. It was a game of high intensity", Wenger said.

"We were relentless, after a hard start we were caught cold and overall it was a windy, rainy afternoon against a team who played well and were quick on the counter-attack".

'We put them under pressure and created more than in the first half. I think you could see today that last week had an influence on today's start of the game. "We were relentless to the end".

Giroud has been touted with a move away from Arsenal in January, as he looks for more regular game-time ahead of the World Cup next summer.

They pressed forward with more objective after the restart, dominating possession, yet were unable to penetrate a home defence that was demonstrating far more resilience than the Gunners' own backline.

"The second half was played in one half of the pitch and it was important not to be caught on counter attack". "But we wanted all three".
