Johannesburg, Dec. 27 (ANI): Arsenal’s hopes of going top of the Premier League table dealt a heavy blow after suffering a humiliating 4-0 defeat at the hands of a Shane Long-inspired Southampton.
Defender Cuco Martina put Southampton ahead with a sensational long-range strike in the 19th minute before Long doubled the lead shortly after the half-time, Sport24 reported.
Subsequently, Jose Fonte headed in the third before Long wrapped up the match 4-0 in injury time.
Arsenal, which had lost just one of their previous 11 league games and recorded an impressive victory over Manchester City last week, will now aim for six points from home matches against Bournemouth and Newcastle United. (ANI)
