Southampton 1-1 Arsenal: Super-sub Giroud rescues late point [Best Tweets]

Arsenal have Olivier Giroud to thank for the Sunday draw against Southampton as the Frenchman came on to snatch a late equalizer at St. Mary’s.

Arsenal came into the match as favourites. But, the visitors were in for a shock as Charlie Austin opened the scoring within the first 10 minutes of the match. The Saints had many more chances to extend their lead but their inability to do so saw the match evenly poised, with Arsenal looking for an equalizer.

Olivier Giroud became Arsenal’s saviour with another goal as a substitute, though. The Frenchman scored in the dying embers of the game to secure a late point for the Gunners. Arsenal though, did not escape criticism for a toothless performance.

Wenger was the one carrying most of the blame.

Giroud earned plaudits though, with the Frenchman rescuing Arsenal again.
