Theo Walcott scored against his former club as Arsenal, Southampton play to a 1-all draw

SOTON

Theo Walcott scored against his former club as Arsenal, Southampton play to a 1-all draw. Theo Walcott had opened the scoring on his return to his former club with a delightful dink over onrushing goalkeeper Bernd Leno. Ten-man Arsenal earned a point against Southampton to bring their three-match losing streak in the Premier League to an end.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finished smartly after the break to level as Arsenal ended a run of 797 minutes in the Premier League without a goal from open play. But the Gunners’ ill-discipline cost them once again as Gabriel was sent off after being booked twice in four minutes.

Substitute Nathan Redmond struck the crossbar soon after as Southampton pressed for a winner that would have moved them briefly top of the league.

The visitors could not make their pressure pay, however, and almost conceded at the other end late on when Rob Holding‘s header rattled the woodwork.

The draw lifts Southampton above Leicester City into third. Mikel Arteta’s side remain 15th in what is Arsenal’s worst start to a top-flight campaign since the 1974-75 season.
