Southampton vs Arsenal highlights (1-3)

Southampton 1 vs 3 Arsenal highlights 26.1

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta speaking to BBC Sport: “They are a really dangerous team when they are in front. They are a team that presses and is good in transition but we did a lot of things right.

“There were phases of play we completely dominated and we looked comfortable and scored some good goals because it is complicated to win here.

“We were much better building up and did not put ourselves in trouble. We were cleaner and more effective and when we had to defend deeper we looked comfortable.

"We conceded from a set-piece but I really like the character of the team. To go 1-0 down after what happened a few days ago, the reaction, the confidence, the way they played, it was positive.

“They are a team that is good at building the game really well inside but we recognised the triggers to press."

On Arsenal’s recent run: "Winning a football game brings confidence. We were doing things right but losing games. It is a lot of things."

On Bukayo Saka and Emile Smith Rowe: "They were both magnificent again today. They need to keep going - they have a lot of things to learn and improve but they are lucky they have senior players who are giving them advice and pushing them."

Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, speaking to BT Sport: "I think we were good from the start. We conceded a goal from a corner but responded straight away. We were good on the ball. We got out of trouble and made some big chances. Our pressing was brilliant. We were good in the break. It was a strong performance."

On Nicolas Pepe: "He was really good again. He created big moments. He deserved his chance today and he took it."

On Bukayo Saka: "He has been very consistent. He has played in different positions and adapted. He is assisting players. It was another strong performance today."

On the result: "It is tough to win here. They are strong and have been in form. It showed a lot of intelligent and resilience from the team in the way they managed the game.

"We have still a lot to do. We have to improve, be humble and train good for the next game."
