Arsene Wenger admits Matt Le Tissier's injury time strike was ''perfect'' as Southampton beat Arsenal 3-2 in the last ever match at The Dell.

The Saints legend curled in a 25-yard effort after coming on as a substitute in a see-saw battle to give the hosts a perfect send-off before moving to a new 30,000-seater stadium.

Wenger, whose side had led twice through Ashley Cole and Fredrik Ljungberg, says: "The goal was quality - but very frustrating. He reminds me of Michel Platini.

"The Dell's always been a tough place to come to - when they move to a bigger stadium with a bigger pitch, they may find less fear from the opponents as well.

"No matter how good Southampton are, you know you will be playing against Southampton and the crowd here."
