Giroud earns Arsenal a point in 1-1 draw at Southampton

Wilshere focused despite uncertain future

Poor defending allowed Southampton to open the scoring in the 3rd minute but Olivier Giroud came off the bench to score a late equaliser to salvage a point.

Ever since Arsenal's 3-1 home defeat to Manchester United, last Saturday, Alan Shearer has been inundated with messages from hysterical Gunners fans who were apoplectic for the former Newcastle United captain's analysis of their loss to Jose Mourinho's men.

"I must say I am very frustrated as in the second half there was a lot of time-wasting", Wenger said.

"I consider Olivier Giroud as a regular player", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said of the striker, who has lost his starting place to summer signing Alexandre Lacazette.

Apple said Shazam would be a "natural fit" with its Apple Music streaming service and would help users discover new songs. Apple has confirmed its acquisition of music recognition app Shazam in an effort to increase its music business.

For Southampton, Maya Yoshida and Jack Stephens are among the changes, while Charlie Austin starts another game up front.

Giroud's goal was Arsenal's first effort from inside the penalty box in the second half, which is testament to Southampton's discipline and organisation. I believe as well it's always the same when you have many good players, some of them can not play. The answer is in the authority of the referee.

"First, it has to be in the head of the players to respect the game and to play". It is not the 28-year-old's natural game, but he fulfilled his duties diligently and worked hard before his substitution in the final five minutes.

Austin has scored four goals in his last three starts for Southampton, with Shane Long and Manolo Gabbiadini now behind him in the centre-forward pecking order.
