Arsenal bounce back to force Southampton draw

Arsenal came from behind twice to force a 2-2 draw with Southampton in the English Premier League game played at the Emirate Stadium.

Both managers went into the game, desperate to turn their seasons around with Unai Emery and Ralph Hasenhuttl registering five and two wins in the Premier League after 12 matches, respectively.

Arsenal suffered an awful defending as Danny Ings puts Southampton ahead in the 8th minute. The visitors take a quick free-kick and are caught out.

Ings runs through on goal and slots it past Bernd Leno at the near post

Ten minutes later, Arsenal bounced back on level terms when Tierney runs down the left and crosses in a teasing delivery to Aubameyang.

The Gabon striker gets his shot off but sees his effort blocked by Bertrand. Fortunately, it falls to Lacazette on the edge of the six-yard box before the Frenchman emphatically fires home into the corner.

Arsenal soaked pressure from Southampton to finish the first half on even.

After the break, Tierney brings down Ings and referee Attwell points to the spot. There was a VAR check for offside but the penalty stands and Tierney receives a yellow card.

James Ward-Prowse puts Southampton ahead at the second time of asking. Leno saves the spot-kick but he diverts it straight back into the danger zone and the Southampton midfielder slots home into the empty net in the 71st minute.

Arsenal, who knew they must not disappoint their fans watching the game on Showmax, again came from behind in added time to level the score. Alexandre Lacazette received a good pass, and after controlling the ball, tipped it into the net to end the game at 2-2.
