"We kept going. It was game of high intensity", Wenger told BBC Sport.
One of the more peculiar moments in an entertaining match came late in the second half when Cech was forced into a moment of improvisation. It was a clinical from Saints but another woeful early defensive error from Arsenal. Yet although Arsenal rescued a draw, this result could leave them three points adrift of the top four by the end of Liverpool's meeting with Everton.
"It was a bit in their head and they were a bit apprehensive to start well again and that's why it is sometimes not good to talk about the problem because you create a bigger one".
They pressed forward with more objective after the restart, dominating possession, yet were unable to penetrate a home defence that was demonstrating far more resilience than the Gunners' own backline. Oriol Romeu was first, seeing a spectacular long-range effort rattle off of the cross bar and then Ryan Bertrand dragged his shot wide after being played in one-on-one.
The veteran manager wasn't happy at all after Arsenal's disappointing 1-1 draw with Southampton at St Mary's this afternoon.
Giroud has scored 10 goals in the 80th minute or later in 2017 for Arsenal. In the second half, there was a lot of time-wasting, especially on the final ball on the counter-attack.
Despite seeing most of the ball, Southampton had the two best chances of the game.
