Welbeck's brace helps Arsenal overcome Southampton 3-2 at Emirate

Arsenal host Southampton

Shane Long grabbed a rare goal to give Mark Hughes' side a surprise lead after just 17 minutes, but goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Welbeck sent the Gunners in 2-1 ahead at half time.

Arsenal came back from 1-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2 in a memorable match at the Emirates.

Danny Welbeck headed home a late victor as Arsenal beat Southampton at the Emirates Stadium to leave the visitors in the Premier League bottom three.

Time is running out for 18th-placed Southampton this season, though, and even though they have a game in hand over Crystal Palace and Huddersfield immediately above them, today's loss against Arsenal and the fact their next game is against Chelsea will not inspired hope in the south-coast city.

Despite some lacklustre attacking in the first half, Southampton returned after the break transformed, pressing forward and keeping real pressure on Arsenal. Sead Kolasinac allowed Soares to squeeze in a cross from the byline and Long nipped in front of the motionless Mustafi to prod his second goal in 46 appearances beyond the exasperated Petr Cech.

Jack Stephens was sent off in stoppage time for the Saints after shoving Wilshere to the ground in an off the ball incident while Mohamed Elneny also got red carded moments later for an off-the-ball incident as the game turned sour.

Arsenal look likely to reach the Europa League semi-final following their first leg 4-1 quarter-final win over CSKA Moscow at Emirates Stadium, but Wenger is likely to bring a strong squad with him for the return game in Moscow on Thursday.

Charlie Austin restored parity for Southampton in the 73rd minute but Welbeck got the victor eight minutes later.

He'd get his goal in the 81st minute, stabbing home a header at the back post from an Iwobi cross.

Alex Iwobi played in Danny Welbeck who flicked the ball into Aubameyang's path to leave the striker with a poked finish into the bottom corner of the Saints goal.

"When it was not all easy we again found the resources to win the game".

'As well as link-up play we want to play, I believe he has that.

Yet he made amends for the miss soon after, nodding in Alex Iwobi's deep cross to the back post. "It just shows the level of competition in the Premier League", he said.

And it was one of them who contributed heavily to the Saints' opening goal.
