Southampton 0-2 Arsenal – player ratings

Arsenal kept their slim top four hopes alive with a 2-0 win over Southampton at St Mary’s tonight.

It wasn’t an easy game, but a moment of great quality from Alexis put us ahead, and Olivier Giroud’s goal sealed the deal.

Here’s how the players rated.

Very good again, that was a BIG save in the first half, and he's really found some form in recent weeks.

Hopefully the hamstring injury isn't too bad, he had been doing well

Just solid again, he doesn't look out of place at centre-half in this system

He was fine, but it's hard not to wonder what a really dynamic player down that side might give us.

Working nicely alongside Ramsey now, becoming more important and with 94% passing (with more passes than anyone else), his quality is showing.

He's a force of nature. Spends a period of the game giving the ball away, then pops up with a goal like that. Ooooof. He tapped the badge too!

Still not quite at his best, but definitely on his way out of that slump

Worked hard but Arsenal need to find a way to service their strikers more efficiently in this new system

Six goals from the bench this season, even if he shouldn't be starting, he's still an asset

Sadly no flying blocks today

Vote is now closed.

Bonus rating: 10/10 when Shane Long doesn't do something profoundly irritating to us.
