Southampton fans react to performance of Stuart Armstrong during Arsenal loss

Southampton missed the chance to claim an important three points last night as they slipped to a 3-1 defeat to Arsenal.

Despite the loss, goalscorer Stuart Armstrong did come in for some praise on Twitter following the contest.

The Gunners put Ralph Hasenhuttl’s men to the sword with goals from Nicolas Pepe, Bukayo Saka and Alexandre Lacazette.

Armstrong’s goal was his third of the season and he’ll hope to add a few more after netting his first for six Premier League games.

The 28-year-old signed for the Saints for £7 million from Celtic in 2018 and has proved a steady signing.

He is a trusted member of Hasenhuttl’s team and works tirelessly when called upon.

Armstrong earns £50,000-a-week at St Mary’s Stadium and will hope to kick on after his latest performance.

Southampton fans were clearly impressed with his showing last night, despite a defeat in which they were second best for large parts.

Here is what Saints supporters were saying on Twitter regarding the performance of Armstrong against Arsenal.
