Saints Stun Arsenal
St Mary's Stadium
Southampton's Premier League season continued with a stunning four-nil win against Arsenal at the St Mary's Stadium on Boxing Day.
A (as I say) stunning Southampton win was kicked-off when defender Cuco Martina curled home from 30-yards on his full defeat in the Premier League to give them the lead. Shane Long and Jose Fonte added the second and third in the second half with Long rounding off the Saints win at the death with his second.
Had Virgil van Dijk not seen his headed disallowed for offside it would have been even worse for the visitors!
These were the other results.

Some 'Christmas crackers' weren't there!
The pressure was pilled on Man United boss Louis van Gaal even more with another defeat, slumping to a two-nil defeat at Stoke with Norwich, victorious over United the weekend before it was back down to earth with a bump losing three-nil at Spurs!
Liverpool ended their own poor run with a win over Christmas Day leaders Leicester who, in something of a rarity failed to score in a one-nil defeat at Anfield.
Arsenal blew their chance to stamp their authority on a title challenge, following the win over Man City before this (who got back to winning ways thrashing Sunderland), when they were (as we know) battered!
Did a starter, or someone from the bench, offer the most?
