How the Gunners got on individually in their Premier League clash with Saints at St. Mary’s Stadium.
Aaron Ramsdale: Went long a lot when under pressure and played into a sense of panic that diffused into the Arsenal side as the game went on. Some smart saves when needed, though. 6.
Ben White: A superb assist for Xhaka’s goal that showed his capabilities going forward, but was sold hook, line and sinker by the dummy in the build-up to the Saint’s equaliser. That moment shouldn’t totally overshadow a decent display though. 7.
William Saliba: Not quite at his confident best when playing from the back. Dealt well with the threat of Aribo and Armstrong for the most part, though. 6.
Gabriel: A decent display from the Brazilian, who largely defended well and tried to marshal the rest of his team into focus when they appeared to be losing it a bit. 7.
Takehiro Tomiyasu: Found himself beaten for the equaliser but was hardly given much support. Some decent play in possession, but Arsenal looked better going forward when Tierney came on. 6.
Thomas Partey: Some excellent play from the Ghanaian in the first half, particularly in possession when picking out some sublime passes. Fell away in the second half though, and could have done a bit more as a defensive screen. 7.
Granit Xhaka: The complete midfield performance in the first half. Defensively sound, superb in possession and magnificent movement with a goal to match. He faded in influence in the second half as Arsenal struggled though. 8.
Martin Odegaard: He had a good chance in the first half and really should have taken it but was great aside from that. One of the few players keeping their head as the Arsenal team lost theirs. Could easily have had a hattrick of assists on another day. Strange decision to take him off. 7.
Bukayo Saka: Very harshly booked for a dive when there was contact on him. Not as influential as he has been in the previous few matches. 6.
Gabriel Jesus: A poor day at the office for the Brazilian who had so many chances to make the game safe for Arsenal but failed to take any of them. 5.
Gabriel Martinelli: Some really influential moments in the first half and some really nice passes from the Brazilian. Like much of the team though he faded as the game went on. 6.
Kieran Tierney: He made a real difference after coming on by adding a direct attacking threat and nearly managed an assist for Odegaard. Will be frustrated to have been overlooked again. 7.
Eddie Nketiah: A huge chance to put Arsenal in front, not taken by the Hale Ender. Has been finishing those in the Europa League but needs to do more to trouble the Premier League starting XI. 6.
Fabio Vieira: Came on too late to influence the game. n/a.
