Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta believes his team ‘shot themselves in the foot’ as they drew 1-1 with Southampton at the Emirates.
The Gunners went behind in the 18th-minute as former player Theo Walcott scored.
The Englishman was sent through on goal by a great pass from Che Adams.
He dispatched of the chance with a delightful chip over Arsenal keeper Bernd Leno.
Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang brought his team level in the second half as he scored for the first time in a while.
Bukayo Saka did well to get past several Saints players, before giving the ball to teammate Eddie Nketiah. He played in Aubameyang, who sent the shot past Alex McCarthy.
Arsenal went down to 10 men not long afterwards as Gabriel Magalhaes picked up a second yellow card for his challenge on Walcott.
That meant another red card for Arteta’s men, which is proving to be a big problem for the Spaniard.
Speaking after the match, Arteta said: “We didn’t have time to think, we adjusted two or three things to try and win the game. The boys came out like we did three days ago, we scored a really good goal, on top in the game, and again we shoot ourselves in the foot.
“Aubameyang needed that confidence boost, he is very critical with himself, hopefully he can move and be more optimistic in the future.”
When asked about Gabriel’s red card, Arteta said: “Very (disappointed) because in that moment I was thinking to change the centre back straight away – we didn’t even have time to do that.
“In the end we got a point that considering the circumstances we have to accept.”
