So, there we have it, a new year but the same ol’ Arsenal following their 2-0 defeat against Southampton which was no more than the Saints deserved – it was their first Premier League victory over the Gunners for 12-years.
Although it could’ve been more than two, Southampton will be thanking Arsenal for their iconic shaky defending for both goals with Sadio Mane profiting from a Wojciech Szczesny error and then the Pole involved again – with some assistance from Mathieu Debuchy – for Dusan Tadic’s goal which killed off the tie early in the second-half.
Southampton’s whole XI would’ve been worthy winners of the Man of the Match award, however, it was Victor Wanyama who really stood out today, marshalling the middle of the park with ease and highlighting all the qualities that Arsenal lack.
Naturally, the Gooners have called for Arsene Wenger to make the former Celtic man one of their first signings this January transfer window.
Would love Wanyama! What a player

Arsenal should sign Wanyama, I’d say second best DM in the PL behind Matic
