Due to the high press we seem to lose steam after 70 mins and from then there was no way back. We will come back. Before the end of the season the big dane will once again be spraying quality balls from defence for KWP and Bertand to feed Ings.. COYRs

Well Im sorry to say I was right. Are form has gone down hill since Vestergaard got injured. Hopefully Walker-Peters will be fit on Saturday along with Romeo.

In spite of our defensive frailties, we actually created some decent chances and on another day, Adams and Walcott would steer their shots/headers wide of the keeper.
Despite great contributions from Diallo and Armstrong, we never totally got our passing game going, but that was probably down to fatigue and different personnel. At 2-1 down, Ralph gambled, it didn't work , so we played out for a 3-1 defeat, a subbed the likes of Ings.
No real shame in losing to that bunch of divers when you consider the team we had out, but yet again we rather frustratingly were our own worst enemies.
Oh well, hopefully we will have a few back this weekend (KWP, Bert, Rom) to help freshen things up. Villa are no walkovers, but we have already shown we can score against them and Ings is always good for a goal too.

And getting those results .
Arsenal new our weaknesses tonight , our fullbacks and pressing against us . We do it better than most but when against us its a worry .
Danny ings looks not quite on it and piss.ed off , Adams
Worked hard and had a good game .
Again its fine margins , the few shots we had were good , just either at the keeper or he made a good save . Seems to be happening alot these days though .
I wonder also if FF is asking how many more clean sheets do i need to have a run in the team . ?
Frustratingly for me is the almost stupid way we get a quick break or a chance of a quick throw in and it slowly goes backwards .
We only seem to look good or dangerous when we press and win the ball high up . When we pass it back to the defence or keeper we look slow and as tonight errors are made .
Good points are armstrong looked quality tonight ,a real threat .

Our defence made a lot of unforced errors. Hopefully the 2 young fullbacks will have learned something.
Our midfield was generally good. Armstrong and Diallo were our best players.
Adams plays some great passes but ultimately both he and Ings couldn't finish anything.

Unfortunately, Arsenal managed to hold two tight blocks of four to break up most Saints attempts to get into the penalty box. In the second Saints looked weary and didn't really look as if they were going score. The forward line were mostly easily blocked and Walcott provided a few wayward efforts. We need as many of the first-teamers back as possible for Saturday against Villa when Grealish and Traore need to be kept quiet.
