  • STAT ATTACK

    Arsenal lead at half-time thanks to Alex McCarthy's blunder which let Eddie Nketiah put the Gunners one up.

    But there's not a lot in it on the stats though Arsenal did also hit the bar through Aubameyang and have had the better chances.

  • HALF-TIME!

  • SAINTS 0 – 1 ARSENAL

    45+2. CHANCE!

    Nketiah played through by Pepe but through on goal under pressure he toe poked the ball wide.

    Needed more composure.

  • THIS DIDN'T AGE WELL…

    Southampton tweeted this just moments before McCarthy handed Arsenal the lead.

  • THREE MINUTES STOPPAGE TIME

  • SAINTS 0 – 1 ARSENAL

    43. Mikel Arteta is very vocal down there on the touchline and seems very eager for his team to get the ball out to Bukayo Saka every time they are in possession.

  • ARSEN-LOL

  • SAINTS 0 – 1 ARSENAL

    41. Easily cleared and Arsenal break…

    But Pepe's cross from the byline on the left-hand-side was easily gathered by McCarthy at his near post.

  • SAINTS 0 – 1 ARSENAL

    40. Southampton win a corner.

  • SAINTS 0 – 1 ARSENAL

    30. The game seems to have settled a bit here as both teams battle against the heat.

    But Southampton's eager early start has been stunted somewhat by their keeper's error for Arsenal's goal.

  • BACK OF THE NKET

  • SAINTS 0 – 1 ARSENAL

    27. CHANCE!

    Ings brings down a long diagonal ball deep inside Arsenal's box, he knocks it back to Redmond and his ball fizzed across the six-yard-box was just an inch from Armstrong's toe.

    Great from Ings, lucky for Arsenal.

  • SAINTS 0 – 1 ARSENAL

    26. And we're back underway.

  • PAIN IN THE ARTH

    Alex McCarthy gifted Arsenal their first-half lead…

  • SAINTS 0 – 1 ARSENAL

    24. The players are on their first-half water break which is definitely needed tonight.

    And both managers are passing on some instructions to their players.

  • AUBA THE KEEPER

    Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's effort that crashed off the bar earlier in the game.

  • SAINTS 0 – 1 ARSENAL

    19. AWFUL from Alex McCarthy!

    Bednarek played a ball back to him on the edge of his box.

    But the stopper dillied and dallied and when he eventually tried to play the pass, Nketiah had shut him down and he intercepted and gratefully rolled into the empty net.

    A gift from McCarthy there.

  • GOALLLLLLLL – NKETIAH!!!!!!!

  • SAINTS 0 – 0 ARSENAL

    17. Arsenal slowly getting a foothold in this game.

    Nketiah looking particularly sharp and wins a corner.

    Ceballos goes short and wins another as he receives the ball back and tries to cross.

  • SAINTS 0 – 0 ARSENAL

    15. Saka limped off but he has hobbled back on and it might not be as bad as first feared.

    Arsenal will certainly hope so.

  • SAINTS 0 – 0 ARSENAL

    14. Saka went past Valery and seems to have hurt his ankle in a 50/50 collision with Hojbjerg.

    No foul but looked a sore one.
