Alexis Sanchez opened the scoring at the Emirates tonight with an unbelievable free-kick after just 13 minutes in their Capital One Cup tie with Southampton.
However Ronald Koeman's men hit back knocking the hosts out on a scoreline of 2-1 to make it five wins on the bounce for the Saints not bad for a team who had their squad all most depleted from last season if you were to go by the very astute new coach!
It was always going to be a tough night for Arsenal against a strong Saints line-up that was not much changed. Arsene Wenger made plenty, as expected, but it still looked a pretty strong midfield and attack, with the likes of Wilshere, Rosicky, Podolski and Alexis in there. And it was all going so well [.
As expected, it is a much changed Arsenal starting line-up that Arsene Wenger has picked for the third round visit of Southampton in the Capital One Cup. The big news, though, and something that should put a smile on all of our faces, is the return of Abou Diaby, as the most unlucky Frenchman in [...
The signing of David Ospina was one of the least talked about Arsenal transfers of the summer, but I think that the capture of the Colombia international for around £3 million from the French club Nice was a very good pice of business from Arsene Wenger. After all, the keeper is one of the most [...
After suffering an amazing and unlucky number of injuries, around 40, in his eight years as an Arsenal player, it is pretty incredible that Abou Diaby has not just thrown in the towel. And many other clubs and managers might have given up on the Frenchman, but not Arsene Wenger and Diaby could be about [.
We are at home. The tickets are cheap. It is an autumn night. There are few expectations. We have a big enough squad to play some top players mixed with exciting youngsters. Southampton play expansive, attacking football.
Wish I was going.
Given the size of our squad and the strength of our bench I believe our B team can win the Capital One Cup.

At the highest level, there are relatively few footballers who warrant having teams and formations constructed around their style and abilities. Almost every player would benefit from a system set up especially to accommodate their strengths and weaknesses, but those who deserve that kind of special treatment are the ones who, with such support, feed as much or more into the rest of the side as is fed to them – those who enhance their team mates, and whose talents can help take their sides to a higher plain.
It's been a middling start to Real Madrid's 2014-15 La Liga campaign, but the Spanish giants have a great opportunity to get back on track Tuesday against lower table squad Elche.
Real Madrid has come to regret selling off some of their midfield depth over the summer, but they should still be able to overpower Elche offensively as they did Deportivo La Coruña last weekend, when Cristiano Ronaldo netted a hat trick in an 8-2 thrashing.
The current Premier League champions have now faced both Arsenal and Chelsea in the league and, perhaps surprisingly, the Man City captain has expressed his belief that the Gunners could prove a bigger threat to them retaining the title than the blue boys from Stamford Bridge. Vincent Kompany was speaking, as reported by the Daily [.
Arsenal to try again for Barcelona forward? - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Barcelona youngster Munir El Haddadi has only played four games this season and he is already in demand.
In Luis Suarez's absence, Barcelona manager Luis Enrique has given Munir a chance to impress. The 19-year-old, a product of the club's youth academy, is making the full use of this opportunity and has a goal to his name already.

Wenger finds shades of Henry in Welbeck - originally posted on Soccerlens.com
Arsene Wenger accepts that his new centre-forward Danny Welbeck has tremendous potentials to be a top quality striker, but at the same time he admits the comparison with club legend Thierry Henry is too premature.
Arsenal vs Southampton Preview, Line up and Predicted score by KJ I'm normally pretty excited about the league cup as it gives us an opportunity to play some of the younger players and we usually play well. But with our lack of defenders, I'm deeply concerned with Wenger playing the likes of Chambers only for [.
The injury curse that seems to have been hanging over the Emirates stadium and the Arsenal team in recent years goes on. After already losing our main striker Olivier Giroud to a bizarre tibia injury for three months, we now face about the same amount of time without our first choice right back. Arsene Wenger [.
I might be reading too much into the words of Mesut Ozil, after the Arsenal midfielder spoke after coming back with a bang in Saturday's game at Aston Villa, but the way he praised certain qualities of his new team mate Danny Welbeck, as rerported by ESPN, made me think of many discussions on this [.
Bellerin Ready for the Next Step at Arsenal! by AT Arsenal's inability to adequately bolster the defence in the summer has quite evidently cost them very early on in the new campaign. News has broken out today confirming that Mathieu Debuchy will be on the sidelines for the next three months, leaving Arsene Wenger's side [.
The Players Arsenal Seem to have Forgotten About this Season! by AT It is not very hard to see right now that Arsenal's defence is being stretched to the limit, even more so now that Mathieu Debuchy is set to miss the next three months of the campaign as a result of the ankle injury [...]
