Video: Gabriel Magalhaes marks return to Arsenal team with own-goal as Gunners woefully ball-watch against Southampton in the FA Cup

Posted by

In the 23rd minute of this afternoon’s FA Cup 4th Round tie between Arsenal and Southampton, a marauding Spurs academy graduate Kyle Walker-Peters spelled danger.

The full-back was afforded a free run into space before he was slotted the ball by James Ward-Prowse, the youngster then composed himself as he worked into the box.

Former teammate Cedric Soares decided against putting a challenge in on the ace as he advanced into the area, something he paid for as Walker-Peters drilled a ball into the six-yard area.

The ball was turned into the back of the net by the outstretched leg of Gabriel Magalhaes, marking a nightmare return to action for the Brazilian.

We’ll see if this heavily-rotated Arsenal side have the quality to overcome such a deficit, with few chances so far, Southampton are well on their way to an upset.

  1. Soton. deserve their lead but in fact Willian WAS fouled when he lost the ball – leading to the goal. I don’t know which video clip the commentary team was watching. Looks like Soton. have fielded more or less their best team. Arsenal have not … and it shows.

  2. Same old story. Plenty of possession but no threat.
    Hopefully if the gunners can use this exit to beat mu, i will be satisfied
