Petr Cech tears into Arsenal team-mates after disappointing Southampton draw

The Frenchman scored in the 88th minute to rescue a point for Arsenal in their 1-1 draw with Southampton on Sunday.

That was Giroud's 17th goal for Arsenal after coming off the bench, which equals former Manchester United frontman Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's Premier League record for a single club.

The Gunners, who will face Swedish side Ostersund in the last 32 of the Europa League, fell behind early at Southampton as Charlie Austin gave the hosts a third-minute lead following some indecisive Arsenal defending.

We'll have to wait and see how serious the injury is but Ramsey's absence will open the door for Jack Wilshere to force his way back in to Wenger's first team plans.

"It was a hard game and I felt that we paid a heavy price for a slow start".

"Overall, the spirit was great".

"Of course you're concerned, but you don't want to make too big a problem of it because it takes belief and confidence away from the players". "I'm not happy with the point because I wanted three points", he said. The answer is in the authority of the referee.

One of the more peculiar moments in an entertaining match came late in the second half when Cech was forced into a moment of improvisation.

"First, it has to be in the head of the players to respect the game and to play".

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. "It's a remarkable achievement what he has done again today".
