Per Mertesacker’s great fist pump after winning Arsenal a penalty against Southampton
Per Mertesacker received plenty of plaudits on Saturday night after Arsenal’s 2-0 win over Southampton in the Premier League.
Had Southampton had beaten Arsenal then the Saints had the opportunity of leapfrogging the Wenger Boys into top spot in the division. That scenario however never looked on the cards after Athur Boruc handed Olivier Giroud a simple opener, and instead it is the Gunners who remain on top of the English top flight.
The Gunners closed out their win with a Giroud penalty which was won after Per Mertesacker was fouled in the box from a corner. More memorable than the penalty itself though was Mertesacker’s reaction after the spot-kick was awarded, as the big German defender displayed a great fist pump which was enjoyed by Gooners.
Also enjoyed by the Arsenal crowd was Mertesacker’s neat skill which left Jay Rodriguez chasing shadows in the first half.
