Arsenal struggled at Southampton today but Guly do Prado's own goal ensured they would return to north London with a point in a 1-1 draw.

Arsene Wenger's side rarely threatened on the south coast in a game that the relegation-threatened hosts looked more likely to win. Saints proved a much different proposition to the team that Arsenal ruthlessly dispatched of 6-1 in September, taking the lead after 34 minutes through Gaston Ramirez.

The lead lasted seven minutes, though, as Theo Walcott, making his first appearance at St Mary's since leaving in 2006, whipped in a free-kick that Do Prado could only prod into his own goal. It proved the evening's decisive moment as, try as they might, Southampton were unable to find a winner in a second half they dominated.
