Southampton winger Nathan Redmond has delivered a scathing assessment of Arsenal following his side’s win against the Gunners.

Jan Bednarek scored the only goal of the game on Saturday as the Saints dealt Mikel Arteta’s side another blow in their bid to finish fourth.


Arsenal, Spurs & United pay price of Premier League’s imbalance


The victory put Southampton up to 12th in the Premier League, meanwhile, Arsenal are sixth, three points behind fourth-placed Tottenham.

Three defeats in a row for Arsenal means that their north London rivals are favourites to finish inside the Champions League places.

Having not finished fourth or higher since 2015/16, this season has been a huge opportunity to return to Europe’s elite competition.

When signing autographs after the match, Redmond was asked on video how it felt to beat Arsenal and his response was disdainful.

“It’s alright, they’re not very good,” Redmond said. It is unclear whether or not the 28-year-old knew he was being filmed.

Arsenal are looking to bounce back on Wednesday when they face Chelsea at Stamford Bridge. They then host Manchester United on Saturday in another huge Premier League clash.

United have been backed to finish fourth ahead of the Gunners and Spurs by Jamie O’Hara.

Spurs were beaten 1-0 by Brighton on Saturday, meanwhile, the Red Devils beat Norwich City 3-2 at Old Trafford.

O’Hara told talkSPORT: “What are we doing?! What are Spurs doing? What are Arsenal doing? We’re both a shambles!

“Does anyone want top four? I feel like this happens every season.

“The worst thing that’s going to happen is that Man United are going to get fourth!”

TalkSPORT presenter Laura Woods added: “It’s like we’re holding the door open and saying, ‘You go’, ‘No, you go!’ And then Man United will just say, ‘Oh, go on then!’”

Simon Jordan then made his case for Man Utd to finish fourth as Spurs will “implode”.

“It’s wide open again. Despite the fact they are [rubbish] and the club’s in disarray, I can see a script where Tottenham can implode, because they’re capable of it,” Jordan said.
