Southampton 1-1 Arsenal, St. Mary's, Jan. 1 2013, Full Time

Theo Walcott's return to St. Mary's will be considered an unsuccessful one as both he and fellow former Saint, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, were almost ineffective against a resurgent Southampton side.

Despite the Gunners dominance of the first 10 minutes, the two teams fought out a very open encounter for the majority of the game, although a goal-laden four minutes provided pretty much all of the genuine scoring chances.

Some questionable Arsenal defending got Gaston Ramirez's 2013 off to a fine start but the Uruguayan's opener was cancelled out just several minutes later by a Guly Do Prado own-goal.

Arsenal Starting XI: Szczesny; Sagna, Koscielny, Vermaelen, Gibbs; Arteta, Wilshere; Oxlade-Chamberlain, Cazorla, Podolski; Walcott

Arsenal Subs: Martinez, Mertesacker, Coquelin, Ramsey, Rosicky, Gervinho, Giroud

Scorers: Do Prado O.G. (41')

Southampton Starting Xi: Boruc, Cork, Fonte, Yoshida, Shaw, Puncheon, Schneiderlin, Davis, Guly, Ramírez, Lambert

Southampton Subs: K.Davis, Hooiveld, Rodriguez, Ward-Prowse, Richardson, Mayuka, De Ridder
