Arsene Wenger explains Alexis Sanchez's poor display against Southampton

Petr Cech

However, with his contract due to expire in the summer, Wilshere insists he isn't giving any thought to leaving, saying his focus is on influencing Arsenal's results in the best way he can.

"Why should we lose an important player?" said the Arsenal manager of a striker who was close to joining Everton at the end of the last transfer window."It's up to us."Wenger added: "Yes he will start games".

Aaron Ramsey is facing a spell on the sidelines after Arsene Wenger confirmed he picked up a hamstring injury during Arsenal's 1-1 draw with Southampton this afternoon.

Arsenal repeated their poor start from last week against Manchester United as Per Mertesacker gave the ball away after just three minutes, setting up a quick attack for Southampton that was finished off by Charlie Austin.

"One thing that is really gutting is that we lost the game against Man United in the first 10 minutes", said Cech. Overall, I think the spirit was great.




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.

"The answer is the authority of the referees and to put it in the head of the players to respect the game and play".

That goal draws Giroud level with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer for the most goals by a substitute in Premier League history.

"If I'm on the bench in a Premier League game, I'm thinking, 'What can I do coming off the bench?'" "It's a remarkable achievement what he has done again today".
