Jose Fonte's first-half goal was cancelled out by Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla but Adam Lallana denied Arsene Wenger's side three points.

Saints' defeat at the Emirates Stadium earlier this season triggered an alarming run that brought just two wins from their previous 11 league games.

And Pochettino admitted a few lapses in concentration cost them a famous win over the Gunners.

"The team were sensational tonight and I actually though that we deserved to get the three points," the Argentine told Sky Sports.

"In the second half we didn't start so well and conceded two quick goals.

"We did make some mistakes against Arsenal and against a side like Arsenal, that's a heavy price to pay.

"I would highlight the fact we were able to get back into it - we showed amazing character."

sn'tthis strange. Last season we were worried that we were stuck with a Dinosaur in Moyes while Liverpool and Everton were disappearing into the distance with their young, spritely managerts, playing football from heaven. Progressive managers, they said. Managers who understand the modern game.........

ood list, some crackers in there. For me, I'd have had Steve McManaman for Liverpool away at Celtic in the UEFA cup in 1997. I was in the ground that night and everyone kept screaming at him to make a pass, but he just kept going and going and going...brilliant, and in the dying minutes too.
