Arsenal. Southampton, Lacazette

Arsenal were booed off at the Emirates despite rescuing a point with a late Alexandre Lacazette equalizer in a chaotic 2-2 draw with Southampton.

The Gunners were facing an embarrassing home defeat after goals from Danny Ings (9) and James Ward-Prowse (71) put Saints on the verge of their first Premier League win away at Arsenal.

However, Lacazette, who had already equalized earlier (18), grabbed a last-gasp leveller (90+6) that was met by underwhelming celebrations in the home end after their team had been second best for large periods as the pressure intensifies on boss Unai Emery.

Relegation-threatened Saints, who registered 21 shots on goal, should have wrapped the points up in injury time but substitute Moussa Djenepo squandered two huge opportunities leaving Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men without a win in the Premier League in their last eight matches.
