Arsene Wenger opted for a change on 72 minute as Lacazette made way for Olivier Giroud as the Gunners went for a more direct approach.

"It was a hard game and I felt that we paid a heavy price for a slow start".

The Frenchman scored in the 88th minute to rescue a point for Arsenal in their 1-1 draw with Southampton on Sunday.

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.

Charlie Austin grabbed his fourth game in three starts for Southampton to give Mauricio Pellegrino's side the lead early on. I think you could see today that last week had an influence on today's start of the game.

Packers WR Davante Adams stuns Browns with game-winning TD in OT
He started hot by completing 11 of his first 12 throws, including a touchdown to Josh Gordon - Gordon's first since 2014. The Browns forced a punt with 5:22 left the next time Green Bay had the ball, but could not run out the clock.

Wenger said he was satisfied enough with the point Arsenal took given they had been behind for so long. Because if you take him on, you have another guy who is good who will not play. "I'm not happy with the point because I wanted three points", he said.

One of the more peculiar moments in an entertaining match came late in the second half when Cech was forced into a moment of improvisation. "The answer is the authority of the referees".

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.

The French worldwide has scored four goals in the Premier League this season, all coming off the bench.
