  • Southampton denied Premier League leaders Arsenal an eighth successive victory after holding them to an entertaining 2-2 draw at St Mary's Stadium. Jose Fonte handed Saints a first-half lead against a slugglish Arsenal. But Arsene Wenger's men came for the second-half with a real sense of purpose and turned the game around thanks to goals from Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla in the space of four minutes. However, Adam Lallana struck to rescue a point. Mathieu Flamini was handed a straight red card late on as the Gunners settled for a point which sees them move two points clear of second-placed Manchester City.

  • Adam Lallana's cross is easily collected by Wojciech Szczesny.
