Arsenal went a goal down to Shane Long's opener in the 17th minute, but a finish from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and a brace from Danny Welbeck secured all the points in north London this afternoon.

While Mark Hughes led Stoke to a 1-0 win over the Gunners earlier this, Southampton are without a win in 5 matches and have lost both previous away games by the same 3-0 scoreline that Arsenal have recorded at home during March.

Arsene Wenger hailed Danny Welbeck as "exceptional" as the Arsenal forward scored a late victor to condemn relegation-threatened Southampton to defeat at the Emirates Stadium.

Iwobi last scored a league goal for Arsenal this season against Crystal Palace on the 20th of January, 2018.

Arsenal came real close to adding to their lead but the defence of Southampton remained resolute to make sure the scoreline does not become embarrassing.

Elneny then got himself sent off as he shoved Cedric in the back ahead of the final whistle to end a fascinating and feisty encounter at the Emirates.

Mohamed Elneny was also sent off for a tamer push on Cedric Soares as the game descended further into chaos in stoppage time, although Arsenal were beyond caring at that point.

Second half substitute Charlie Austin made an immediate impact as he came off the bench to draw Southampton level on 73 minutes but Welbeck nodded in the victor nine minutes from time.

The home side soon found themselves in front as Welbeck scored his first league goal since September.

Danny Welbeck made up for an bad miss just moments earlier, by doubling his goal haul to two, today.

Arsene Wenger has backed Reiss Nelson for a big future in the Premier League, ahead of the youngster's first start in the competition against Southampton.

Manager Arsene Wenger rested several key players, ahead of next Thursday's Europa League quarter-final second leg against CSKA Moscow in Russian Federation.

'He will not be available for Thursday (v CSKA) and not for Newcastle and certainly not for the week after, I think we play West Ham.

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