Arsenal’s latest game saw them take on a Southampton side who had won just one of their last 16 league games.

Arsenal, on the other hand, were looking to make it 23 games in a row without defeat across all competitions.

Despite the game having an Arsenal win written all over it, a returning Danny Ings would give the Saints the lead in the 20th minute.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan would draw Arsenal level eight minutes later but Ings would once again put Southampton in front on the stroke of half-time.

Mkhitaryan would score his second of the game in the 53rd minute to make it 2-2.

However, Charlie Austin would come off the bench to head Southampton 3-2 up in the 85th minute.

The game finished 3-2 and Arsenal’s superb unbeaten run came to an end vs a relegation battling Southampton.
