Welbeck double powers Arsenal to 3-2 win over Southampton

  • Henrikh Mkhitaryan picked up a knee injury in Arsenal's Europa League win vs CSKA Moscow

Arsenal just edged Southampton in the end, in a game which finished Arsenal 3-2 Southampton.

Charlie Austin came off the bench to equalise for Saints with his first touch after Shane Long's earlier effort had been cancelled out by goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Welbeck.

Southampton manager Mark Hughes was disappointed his side left the Emirates empty-handed after playing a full part in an entertaining game that ended 3-2 to Arsenal.

Defeat for Southampton leaves them in the relegation zone and three points from safety after they lost their early lead here.

Despite today's scoreline, Arsenal have struggled in the Premier League this year, with the club now occupying 6th spot in the table. "In the end I got the (second) goal".

Jack Stephens saw red for reacting to a foul from Jack Wilshere before Mohamed Elneny was also sent off for pushing Cedric Soares.

They had been level for eight minutes when Dusan Tadic allowed Alex Iwobi to cross for Welbeck, who had just produced a contender for miss of the season, to rise above Cédric Soares and head home Arsenal's victor.

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

The game was dominated by neither side, as both teams had their fair share of assertiveness.

Arsenal responded well, though, and Aubameyang brought them level with his sixth goal in eight appearances for the Gunners as he flicked home Welbeck's pass.

Welbeck's recall suggests he is in contention to make the squad for Russian Federation, though he refuses to look beyond Thursday's Europa League tie against CSKA Moscow.

It took the Hammers only 17 minutes to take a 2 goal lead, and a third was deservedly added before the teams made their way back to the dressing room for half-time.

He'd get his goal in the 81st minute, stabbing home a header at the back post from an Iwobi cross. They can win the Europa League this season to qualify for the Champions League, but making the Champions League this season through Premier League play is almost impossible as the team is 16 points back of fourth place.
