Arsenal suffered a blow to their title challenge after being held to a goalless draw against Southampton at the Emirates.

The Gunners fell five points behind league leaders Leicester City who beat Liverpool 2-0 at home.

Premier League assist king Mesut Özil started for Arsenal but was unable to setup up his 17th league goal of the season.

Özil did could have however, easily have added to his assist tally considering he created an impressive 10 chances according to Squawka.

No other player in the Premier League has created as many chances in a single game this season.

The World Cup winner even tried to take matters into his own hands and almost scored himself after bringing down a long-range pass with a brilliant first touch but his shot was saved by Foster.

The Gunners have now gone four games without a win but will have a chance to close the gap with leaders with a victory in their next game if Leicester City and Manchester City – who play each other – draw.
