Arsenal boss Unai Emery was forced into changes ahead of the game and started with a back three of Stephan Lichtsteiner, Laurent Koscielny, and Granit Xhaka.

Southampton’s Danny Ings made the most of the makeshift defence in the first half, twice giving his side the lead with his head.

Two goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan saw Arsenal twice draw level after Ings’ goals, once in the first half and once at the start of the second.

However, Charlie Austin’s late goal ensured Ralph Hasenhuttl picked up a crucial first win as Saints boss.

Speaking after the clash, Iwobi lamented his side’s lacklustre performance.

“We weren’t concentrated through the 90 minutes,” he told Sky Sports.

“There were spells where we didn’t defend well as a group. Southampton deserve credit. They had a game plan and they stuck to it, but it’s disappointing by us.

“We’re frustrated the unbeaten run is over. We had chances to win the game.

“But we should give ourselves some credit for going on the run. Now we have to keep going and try to go on another run.”
