The Gunners took an early lead as Granit Xhaka rounded off a well-worked move in the 11th minute.
But Gabriel Jesus missed two excellent chances to add to Arsenal’s lead and Southampton were able to secure a point through Stuart Armstrong’s equaliser in the second half.
In his post-match interview, White made it clear how unhappy he was with Arsenal’s failure to come away from St Mary’s with a win,
When asked the reason for Arsenal’s poor second-half display, White replied: ‘Sloppy in possession, didn’t win duels, the opposite to the first half and that’s why the game went the way it did.
‘We’re only human… it’s tricky.’
Asked how pleased he was with his assist for Xhaka’s goal, White said: ‘Obviously to be a part of it is amazing but it’s about the team and unfortunately we didn’t get the win today.’

But after watching White’s post-match interview, Dixon said: ‘Wow, did they get beat 8-0?’
‘Yeah, that was a little bit over the top. He’s feeling what he’s feeling but I still think that this season, when you play like that in the second half, you’ve got to take it on the chin and go, ‘yeah, we didn’t play great, move on to the next one’. But he was very down there wasn’t he?’
Dixon also added: ‘I think it [Arsenal’s poor finishing] would’ve been Mikel’s concern at half time because you always remember the game that’s just gone, they had a midweek game but the last Premier League game he’ll remember how in control they were against Leeds and then how it went away from them in the second half.
‘It was very similar, this time Southampton got the goal. But tomorrow when he’s softened his view on it he’ll say it’s a decent point. because they could’ve lost that game in the end.’
