I enjoyed the first half of this game. I thought we made a lot of chances and could/should have scored 4 or 5, Lacazette missing an absolute sitter. It seems a bit mean spirited to moan, but once again we have up some easy chances and in truth we were lucky they were squandered by The Saints.
The second half was a disjointed effort and we seemed happy to allow that, cruise control on and with or upcoming fixtures, that was properly smart.
The introduction of Ozil seemed to give everyone a lift, he sparkled and purred, again we could have scored a few late goals.
Despite them having 5 in midfield Xhaka found time and space all afternoon and I thought he had a great game.
We have sneaked into the top 4 for now, but I think we will have to play a lot better than we did today if we are to finish the season in a Champions League position. But at least we are in the race.
Three points though, so can’t complain too much?
