Saints defender Stephens says Southampton deserved point in Arsenal clash

Southampton defender Jack Stephens says that the Saints didn't deserve to come out empty-handed from their home game against Arsenal on Wednesday.

The Saints were arguably the better side in the first half of the game against the Gunners but conceded two second-half goals to lose the tie 2-0.

"I think we more than matched a good Arsenal side for the majority of the game," said Stephens.

"So we can take a lot of credit from that, but there has got to be a time when we start to put these games to bed.

"I think we had some good opportunities and we limited them to very few clear-cut chances but we have to be able to make the most of that."
