Giroud to the rescue as Arsenal draw 1-1 at Southampton

Second half substitute Olivier Giroud rescued Arsenal with a late equaliser on Sunday after Southampton had looked like taking all three points in a 1-1 draw at St Mary's.
France international Giroud, who came off the bench in the 72nd minute to replace compatriot Alexandre Lacazette, made it 1-1 in the 88th with a glancing header into the bottom right corner.
Until then Arsenal had been staring at a second successive league defeat, after a stinging 3-1 loss to Manchester United at the Emirates last weekend. The Gunners moved up to fifth place and behind Liverpool on goal difference.
Southampton had made a dream start with Charlie Austin grabbing his fourth goal in four league games with a third minute shot past Petr Cech after being fed through by Dusan Tadic.
