There was a real sense that following two hard-fought victories over London rivals Queens Park Rangers and West Ham United that Arsenal were beginning to build a bit of momentum as they looked for their annual push for Champions League qualification.
A real signal of whether Arsene Wenger’s side had turned the corner from their indifferent start to the 2014/15 campaign was going to be against this season’s surprise package, Southampton. Ronald Koeman has got the Saints dreaming of European football next season, and prior to kick-off the South Coast-based club were in Arsenal’s 4th place.
A victory today and Arsene Wenger’s side would’ve leapfrogged Southampton and a sense of the status quo returning would’ve been felt, with Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City and the Gunners making up the Premier League’s top four.
Well, things aren’t going to plan with Arsenal currently 2-0 down and things looking like they’re only going to get worse!

There's no spirit, discipline, fight, guts in the players. There's no leadership, tactics, instruction or clue from the manager. #Wengerout
