Premiership: Southampton Beat Arsenal 4 – 0

arsenal beaten 4-0

Southampton produced a stunning display of high-energy counterattacking football to end any hopes Arsenal had of leapfrogging Leicester at the top, Southampton 4 – 0 Arsenal.

“Arsenal had no answer to such stunning energy and pace.  Mertesacker was miserable at the back and Koscielny was bullied by Long. And on the subject of Long, what a performance! His was an example of how non-stop pressing can force mistakes and turn games”.

Stoke City 2-0 Manchester Utd 

Stoke City condemned Manchester United to a fourth straight defeat to increase the pressure on manager Louis van Gaal.

Bojan Krkic broke the deadlock after a poor header back to David de Gea from Memphis Depay allowed Glen Johnson to play it back to the Spanish forward.

Stoke went 2-0 ahead through Marko Arnautovic’s 25-yard finish after Bojan’s free-kick had hit the wall.

Van Gaal dropped captain Wayne Rooney, who came on as a half-time substitute, and United struggled to create chances.

Stoke were superior throughout and could have won by more.

Arnautovic missed a great chance to add to United’s misery when clean through, while Potters keeper Jack Butland denied Marouane Fellaini, Anthony Martial and Juan Mata.
