Arsene Wenger urged Arsenal to respond following our disappointing draw against Southampton in the league on Tuesday night.

Despite having plenty of chances, we just couldn’t do enough to break the stalemate and the single point gained means we drop to fourth in the league after being genuine title contenders before Christmas.

Speaking after the match at the Emirates, Wenger echoed what he always does after a result like this: that we simply have to respond and bounce back in the next game.

“We have to respond quickly and win our next game,” he said.

The thing is, it’s getting a little bit boring hearing about how we constantly have to bounce back when we don’t actually bounce back. The next match we’re just as sloppy in the first half and although we’re usually better in the second, we need to find that quality to get the ball in the back of the net.

You could argue that Forster had a great game and made some superb saves, and he did, but we really need to be beating Southampton at home.
