Obinwannem News Southampton knocks out Arsenal, FA Cup champions

Southampton football club knocked out FA Cup holders ‘The Gunners’ by 1:0 win on Saturday afternoon at St. Mary’s Stadium.

Arsenal is an English football club. The club has won 13 league titles (including one unbeaten title), record, 14 FA Cups, two League Cups, 16 FA Community Shields, the League Centenary Trophy, one European Cup Winners’ Cup, and one Inter-Cities Fairs Cup.

‘The Saints’ were duly rewarded for their attacking intent in the opening period against ‘The Gunners’ when Gabriel transformed Walker-Peters’ cross in the 24th minute.

Followingly, Arsenal has conceded four own-goals in all competitions this season; more than any other premier league side, and the most they have conceded in a single campaign since 2015-16.

Commenting after the game Arsenal Coach, Mikel Arteta said: “Really sad to be out of the competition. Congratulations to Southampton, but I’m disappointed with the way we lost the game.

“We had issues in the first half. We have to compete in these games, we have to do that better, but it’s a lesson. They all tried so hard, it was intense game and Saints demand the best out of you because they are aggressive. They all tried their best.

“We are looking in the market to see what else we can do, we moved some players, we are a little bit short in one or two positions, let’s see what we can do.”
