Aaron Ramsey will miss Arsenal's crucial London derby at West Ham

Arsene Wenger confirms Aaron Ramsey and Shkodran Mustafi to miss Arsenal's derby clash with West Ham

Olivier Giroud's late header cancelled out Charlie Austin's early strike as Southampton and Arsenal drew 1-1 on Sunday afternoon. It's a talking point, but perhaps better suited for later in the week.

Giroud was brought on in the closing stages to provide Arsenal with more of a penalty-box presence against a Southampton side who were sinking ever deeper.

The France global, on as a 72nd-minute replacement, glanced home Alexis Sanchez's left-wing cross as Arsenal's late pressure told at St. Mary's Stadium.

Arsenal conceded two similar goals in the first 11 minutes in the 3-1 loss to United last weekend, and Wenger admitted that may have had an effect on his players.

Southampton held their nerve throughout the first half when they weren't trying to create chances and they had to start the second half in exactly the same manor. In the second half, there was a lot of time-wasting, especially on the final ball on the counter-attack.

Metro Exodus out autumn 2018
At the Game Awards earlier today, developer 4A Games released a brand new trailer of its upcoming Metro game, Metro Exodus . Despite the difference, if there is one thing that is for certain, the world of Metro Exodus is a risky place.

Their formation was flexible, turning from a 5-4-1 without possession into a 4-4-1-1 when Saints had the ball. It's become a real problem in the last two seasons. It was an intelligent game plan from Pellegrino, and one which nearly came off.

Arsene Wenger has made wholesale changes to the side that beat BATE Borisov on Thursday as Arsenal prepare to face Southampton at St. Mary's.

He said: "I felt that the Manchester United game played a big part in the head of our defenders".

Giroud has yet to start any league game this season, but Wenger paid tribute to the striker's ability to deliver off the bench when it matters.
