Alan Shearer trolls Arsenal after their draw vs Southampton

Paul Merson

We've won games, but BATE Borisov and Southampton are not of the same calibre, you have to consider that. They face Southampton at St Mary's on 10 December.

The Arsenal striker has now scored 17 goals after coming off the bench, drawing level with the Premier League record held by the Norwegian. The ex-Montpellier man could have departed the Emirates Stadium in the summer, but he opted to stay despite knowing he would not be Arsene Wenger's first choice after the signing of Alexandre Lacazette.

Giroud's goal was Arsenal's first effort from inside the penalty box in the second half, which is testament to Southampton's discipline and organisation.

Manager Arsene Wenger was asked for his take on the result after the game and he suggested that last week's 3-1 defeat to Manchester United may still have been lingering in the back of his players' minds.

While Southampton deserve credit for holding Arsenal at arm's length for the majority of the second half, Wenger's side could have done much more to break their opponents down.

Alexis Sanchez drifted into space on the left and put a cross through to Olivier Giroud, who got between Yoshida and Van Dijk to flick a header into the bottom corner for Arsenal's equaliser in the 87th minute.

Wenger said he was satisfied enough with the point Arsenal took given they had been behind for so long.

And as Shearer points out, they're going to need to start turning possession into goals to have any chance of qualifying for the Champions League next season.

The 28-year-old continued to be unsafe and had another chance in the game's early stages.
