Ronald Koeman claims Southampton gave Arsenal ‘motivation’ for last-gasp win

Ronald Koeman claimed Southampton going down to 10 men gave Arsenal the “motivation” to steal a late victory.
With England keeper Fraser Forster in superb form, the Premier League’s surprise side this season were set to earn a deserved point at the Emirates.
But after Jack Cork and Dusan Tadic went off injured and Shane Long was also replaced, Toby Alderweireld pulled a hamstring with six minutes to play and with no Saints subs left. Alexis Sanchez then scored his 14th goal of the season in the 89th minute as Arsenal finally beat a top-four side.
“It is difficult to say if we would have lost with 11 men,” said the Dutchman. “We were unlucky with the injuries. That gave Arsenal the motivation to carry on until the last second.
“Eleven against 11 is difficult against Arsenal. But 11 against 10 is more difficult because they have the quality to score the goal in the last 10 minutes.”With Morgan Schneiderlin already out, Koeman said his third-placed side could now buy in the January transfer window to bolster their bid for a Champions League place.
“We know we don’t have the numbers of players that Arsenal and Manchester United have,” he said. “That is the problem for the lower teams with the with this schedule in games in December.
“We like to be competitive until the end of the season. We are looking and with these kind of injuries you have to do something.”
Southampton, who lost 3-0 at home to Manchester City, were arguably the better team for the first hour last night. “It is a different way of losing a game than last Sunday,” Koeman added.
Next up on Monday in another live TV game are Manchester United and his old foe Louis Van Gaal.
“I think by himself he has enough injured players,” said the Saints boss. “There will be a team next Monday who can beat Man United for sure.”
