Arsenal's Calum Chambers, Tomas Rosicky and Isaac Hayden have rather summed up the mood at the club during the defeat to Southampton last night.

Tomas Rosicky, Calum Chambers and Isaac Hayden have rather summed up the mood around the Emirates Stadium at the minute, in the picture above. 

The three were snapped looking dejected as they trudged back to the half-way after conceding to Southampton in the League Cup tie last night. 

Arsenal went on to lose the match 2-1 and it is a defeat which continues to puncture the positive atmosphere that was felt around the Emirates at the start of the season.

The Gunners were tipped by many to mount a title challenge this campaign, but their start to the season has left many feeling deflated.

The North London side have seen the weaknesses that plagued them last season exposed once again this time around and anticipation has rapidly turned to frustration.

Last night's defeat to Southampton isn't a major blow, but it was another concerning performance against a Saints side that they would have been expecting to overcome before the match.

Arsenal take on Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend knowing that anything other than a win will be considered a failure and increase the concerns about their season even further.
