southampton vs. arsenal Southampton 1-0 Arsenal: Jan Bednarek strike condemns top-four chasing Gunners to third straight defeat

southampton vs. arsenal Jan Bednarek's fourth goal of the season earned Southampton their first victory since February

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta admitted his side's form was "a real worry" after Southampton won at St Mary's to inflict a third successive defeat on the top-four chasing Gunners.

Jan Bednarek scored the game's only goal late in the first half after the visitors had failed to adequately deal with a Saints corner.

Bukayo Saka was denied from point-blank range by Southampton goalkeeper Fraser Forster with the score still goalless, but further clear-cut openings proved hard to come by for Arsenal until the closing stages of the second half.

Emile Smith Rowe forced another fine save out of Forster after latching on to Yan Valery's attempted clearance, before Martin Odegaard dragged a left-footed shot wide of the near post after cutting in from the right.

Forster produced yet another impressive stop to deny Granit Xhaka late on as Arsenal desperately piled forward in search of an equaliser.

"We've lost games in different ways - to lose the way we did today is difficult to explain," Arteta told BBC Match of the Day. "If you saw the game, you'd say Arsenal had won comfortably.

"You have to put the ball in the net. You have to make the decisive moments count to win football matches and at the moment we're not doing that."

The Gunners remain three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham - who were beaten at home by Brighton earlier on Saturday - although they do still have a game in hand on their north London rivals.

Southampton, meanwhile, climb to 12th after claiming their first league win since February.

Magnificent Forster keeps Gunners at bay

Southampton 1-0 Arsenal: Mikel Arteta disappointed with 'painful' Saints defeat

Following lacklustre displays at Crystal Palace and at home to Brighton last weekend, Gunners fans may have hoped this trip to St Mary's would prove to be an ideal fixture to reignite their top-four push.

Saints had lost five of their past six games in all competitions before Saturday and conceded 19 goals in the process - including a 6-0 capitulation at home to Chelsea in their last match. They had also won only one of their past 12 meetings with Arsenal in the Premier League.

The hosts had Forster to thank for keeping the score goalless in the early stages of the first half, the veteran goalkeeper getting down low to palm Gabriel Martinelli's curling shot past the post before brilliantly tipping Saka's close-range effort over the bar following an error from Valery.

Although the Gunners continued to dominate possession as the half wore on, they lacked the tempo to create further openings against a resolute and defensively organised Southampton, who punished Arsenal when Bednarek fired home his fourth goal of the season with a minute of the first half remaining.

When Arsenal did manage to penetrate the Saints rearguard late in the second half, they found Forster in inspired form. The 34-year-old did magnificently to parry Smith Rowe's goal-bound effort wide before getting in the way of a low Saka shot.

Forster also managed to get his fingertips to Xhaka's curling strike with the clock ticking towards 90 minutes - although the Switzerland international's effort may have been heading narrowly wide.

Southampton 1-0 Arsenal: Ralph Hasenhuttl pleased with 'important' three points for Saints

"It wasn't so sure he could play today," Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuttl told BBC Match of the Day when asked about Forster's display. "He had a problem with his ankle, but we needed a goalkeeper like him in such a game today.

"The most important thing is the clean sheet after six or seven games [without one]. We've played much better games, especially with the ball, but today the target was a different one."

Arsenal still have a game in hand on Spurs in fourth but with matches against Chelsea, Manchester United and West Ham coming up in the next fortnight, this will go down as a missed opportunity for Arteta and his players.

    17:03 16 AprOK Arsenal played much better then last two games...but still can't score a goal to save our lives at the moment! It's simple really - we don't have any good strikers. Lacazette and Eddie are simply not good enough - and we don't deserve Champs League. Arsenal need to go & buy two good strikers, LB cover for KT, a world class midfielder - or two. Our squad cannot cope with an injured Partey & KT.
