Ever since Arsenal's 3-1 home defeat to Manchester United, last Saturday, Alan Shearer has been inundated with messages from hysterical Gunners fans who were apoplectic for the former Newcastle United captain's analysis of their loss to Jose Mourinho's men.
The Arsenal stopper was beaten inside the opening three minutes after another slow start from Arsene Wenger's side, with Charlie Austin putting the Saints in front, and saw Southampton rattle the woodwork on two more occasions before Giroud's equaliser in the 88th minute.
"I must say I am very frustrated as in the second half there was a lot of time-wasting", Wenger said.
"It was hard game and I felt that we paid a heavy price for a slow start". Because if you take him on, you have another guy who is good who will not play. "But in the last two weeks, unfortunately we dropped points in the last two games for bad starts - we are caught straight away".More news: New Ready Player One Trailer Brings Spielberg's VR Adventure to Life

The visitors enjoyed most of the possession in the final 15 minutes of the second half, but they were unable to carve out another clear-cut chance.
"I feel the wasting of time becomes a real problem in England, and the referees have not found the answer yet", Wenger said.
The French worldwide has scored four goals in the Premier League this season, all coming off the bench.
It was Giroud's 17th goal as a substitute for Arsenal, with the 30-year-old not starting one league match this season.
