  • Arsenal win in some style to maintain their unbeaten start to the season. Southampton remain without a point!

  • Oxlade-Chamberlain almost caps a superb display with a goal but his shot deflects wide

  • Puncheon threatens a late consolation but Szczesny stops his shot with his legs

  • 6-1! Walcott! Davis stops Vermaelen's shot, Cazorla plays in Walcott and the former Southampton man curls in a left-footed finish. No celebration

  • Clyne bundles his way to the Arsenal six-yard box but can't pick a pass

  • Ramirez has looked bright for Southampton since coming on at the break. He cuts inside and a left-footed drive whistles narrowly wide. He looks to have plenty of confidence in his ability

  • It really should have been six! Giroud will be furious after Walcott wastes numerous chances to put him through and the chance goes begging

  • It's 'ole' stuff from Arsenal at the moment. That is until the finish comes as Oxlade-Chamberlain finds row z!

  • Walcott makes an immediate impression, skipping down the right and almost picking out Giroud with his centre. Arsenal don't look like they've finished yet...

  • Lambert is replaced by Rodriguez for the Saints

  • Just what Southampton need... Walcott and Giroud replace Gervinho and Podolski

  • Oxlade-Chamberlain lets rip from just inside the box but Davis makes a superb save diving to his right

  • 5-1! Gervinho! Ramsey shows quick feet to dance around Clyne, his shot bounces off the post and kindly to Gervinho, who can't miss from one yard out!

  • Szczesny is having an absolutely nightmare here. Another shocking clearance presents Southampton with another attacking opportunity but the final ball is too strong for Puncheon

  • Ramsey replaces Coquelin for the hosts

  • Despite the scoreline, Szczesny is having a game to forget. His routine kick out dribbles to Puncheon, who, after a spell of Saints pressure, balloons his shot over the bar

  • Full credit to Southampton for not giving up here. They are pressing high up the pitch and not allowing Arsenal to pass their way through the remainder of the game

  • Southampton have not given up on this yet. Fox fires in a dangerous cross which almost falls kindly for Puncheon. Cries of 'C'Mon on Arsenal' ring out from the home fans', who clearly don't want their side to take their foot off the gas

  • Oxlade-Chamberlain sets off on a raid down the right wing but can't quite pick out Podolski in the box. Cazorla picks up the pieces and his cross is fired at Gervinho by a Southampton defender and almost bounces in!
