My guys from Arsenal needed a late goal from Danny Welbeck in the 81st minute to secure a hard fought 3-2 win over Southampton.
My Gunners are still parked in sixth place with 54 points. Arsenal trails fifth place Chelsea who tied one all with West Ham by three points. The Blues have 57 points.
EPL Match Report:” Danny Welbeck scored twice to give Arsenal a come-from-behind 3-2 win over Southampton at Emirates Stadium.
Southampton had taken a 17th-minute lead thanks to a deft finish from Shane Long. But Arsenal went into half-time 2-1 ahead when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang completed a neat move and Welbeck fired in a deflected shot.
Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy saved from Aubameyang, Granit Xhaka and Alex Iwobi before Charlie Austin equalised on 73 minutes from close range, 76 seconds after coming on as a substitute.
But shortly after missing a great chance, Welbeck headed in at the back post with nine minutes to go.
In stoppage time Southampton’s Jack Stephens, then Arsenal’s Mohamed Elneny, were sent off for off-the-ball incidents.
Arsenal stay in sixth while Southampton remain in the bottom three, three points from safety. “
