SOUTHAMPTON, England (AP) Arsenal was held to a 2-2 draw at Southampton on Tuesday, leaving the door open for one of its rivals to seize the Premier League lead.

Arsenal recovered from a goal down after being thoroughly outplayed in the first half to go up 2-1 after quick goals by Olivier Giroud and Santi Cazorla after the restart. But Southampton fought back immediately with Adam Lallana slotting in the equalizer just two minutes after Cazorla's goal, and Arsenal was reduced to 10 men when Mathieu Flamini was sent off for a two-footed tackle with 10 minutes left.

Both teams still pushed for a winner, with Southampton coming closest.

Arsenal is now two points ahead of Manchester City and three ahead of Chelsea, who both play on Wednesday.
