The UK's leading football talent platform Footballer Direct brings you news from across the footballing world.
Arsenal crash land out of the Capital One Cup following a nasty defeat to Southampton. The latter took full advantage of Arsenal's team selection which saw several big names left on the bench. Wenger claimed that Gibbs and Mertesacker weren't match fit and should be saved for the weekend's North London derby. It was a decision that cost the reds a chance at another piece of silverware.
"... it's disappointing because we had a good start and we made two un-needed errors on the two goals, and big ones..." said Wenger when asked about his side's performance.
Southampton however now progress and with a strong team we think they are in with a good chance of getting some great results this season.
