Arsenal - Southampton: Premier League live online

FT: Arsenal 3-3 S'hampton

Arsenal-Southampton: as it happened

So, was this one point rescued or two thrown away for the Gunners

Only the table at the end of the season will tell the tale as both sets of players left the pitch disappointed. Saints annoyed to have let a two goal slip let on and Arsenal frustrated that they failed to find a late, late winner that would have kept the North London side in pole position in the Premier League.

Southampton took a 0-2 lead through Alcaraz and Walcott before Martinelli pulled one back for the Gunners.

Arsenal toiled in the second half and lacked a creative cutting edge as Southampton silenced the Emirates as Caleta-Car nodded home to make it 1-3.

Arsenal struggled to break down the side from the south coast but did manage to salvage a point as the excellent Odegaard drilled home with his trusty left boot in the 87th minute with Saka drawing the Gunners level two minutes later.

Arteta's men threw the kitchen sink at Southampton but there was to be no last minute miracle as spoils were shared.

Next up for the Gunners, a midweek trip to face Manchester City with the game now shaping up as a title decider.

The whistle sounds and it ends 3-3.

The ball bobbles in the box and there's a call for a spot kick.

Partey shoots and drives the ball high and wide to the frustration of the crowd. 

Poor call from the Black Star central player.

Has time run out for the Gunners?

We've still probably got 3-4 minutes of time to go as the ref adds on further time.

Change for Saints as Lavia comes off and Diallo on.

0 shots on target from Arsenal in the second 45'.

Change as Martinelli comes on for Reiss Nelson.

Don't forget, Arsenal's next game is away to Man City next week !

Ten remain and it does feel that things are just not going to go Arsenal's way tonight.

Sulemana and Onuachu on 

Walcott and Armstrong making way

Armstrong carded as he delays an Arsenal free

A massive 20 minutes remain.

A result that will send shockwaves through the league as sides at the bottom will not want to see this scoreline and this result will play into City's hands with Arteta's men travelling to Manchester next Wednesday.

Where was the Arsenal marking as the Croatian was totally free at the back post as he nods home after a fine flick from the corner.


Southampton regain their two goal lead.

HT: AFC 1-2 Saints

A surprise scoreline at the Emirates as bottom side Southampton lead Arsenal 1-2.

An error from Ramsdale enabled Alcaraz to fire home within a minute of the start with Theo Walcott scoring against his former side to make it 0-2 to stun the fans at the Emirates.

Arsenal rallied and Martinelli (who along with Saka have been excellent for the Gunners) fired one back on the 20 minute mark.

The whistle sounds and the Saints lead at the interval.

Off the line for Southampton....

Alcaraz saves his side nodding with the ball heading for the corner of the net.

Zinchenko carded for the side in red and white.

A win tonight for Arteta's men would mathematically guarantee Champions League football next season at the Emirates.

Perraud carded for dragging Saka back and is the second name in the book.

We're back underway and Walcott is back on the field.

Ramsdale forced to save again and it's Walcott with the long range (and ambitious) strike.

Odegaard heads over after the Norwegian managed a free header in the box from a Martinelli cross.

Walcott seems to be in trouble and the visitors may need to make a change. The striker now getting seen to by the Saints medical team.

Goal, assist and a booking for the Argentine tonight so far.

Alcaraz hauls Saka to the ground and gets the first yellow of the night.

Fine double save from Ramsdale as he reacts quickly after a strike from Alcaraz. The keeper does look a little nervy this evening.

A massive 'Vamos (Let's Go) banner greets the home side.

Over 35 years since Southampton recorded a win over Arsenal in North London in the league.

Five minutes to kick-off !
What happens if Arsenal and Manchester City finish level on points in the Premier League?

The Gunners are bidding for a first title since 2004, while City have won four of the last five under Pep Guardiola.

A reminder of tonight's teams with just over 15 minutes to go before the action gets underway at the Emirates.

Saka on spot kick duty

Despite missing a key penalty last week in East London against West Ham, Mikel Arteta has confirmed that if the Gunners are awarded a spot kick, then the England international will be on hand to take.

Southampton are in trouble !

A trio of defeats sees the south coast side prop up the Premier League table as we approach the final stretch of the season.

An unexpected win would do wonders for the club's faltering levels of morale!

Two successive draws (against Liverpool and West Ham) has seen Arsenal's lead at the top of the Premier League being cut to just four points with nothing less than maximum points and a convincing performance required from Mikel Arteta tonight with the next Premier League clash for the Gunners being the potential decider in Manchester next Wednesday.

Ainsley Maitland-Niles cannot play against his parent club, and Tino Livramento is unavailable despite closing in on a return after playing for the B team having missed nearly a year with a cruciate tear, while Juan Larios is a long-term casualty.

Arteta's injury concerns

Arsenal are missing several key players as we move into the final stretch of the season. William Saliba continues to be unavailable due to his ongoing back problems, while Ukraine international Zinchenko is also struggling with a groin problem that saw him miss the recent 2-2 draw against West Ham United.

Both Tomiyasu and Elneny remain out longer-term with knee issues.

Saints fans defiant in face of relegation

Despite being favourites to drop down to the Championship, fans of the club still believe that the team can pull off an amazing escape and avoid the drop as fans show up in North London tonight hoping to deliver a shock result.
