Welbeck's double for Arsenal costs Southampton vital points

Thierry Henry

A Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang strike and Danny Welbeck's brace gave the Gunners all three points in Sunday's game against the struggling Saints.

The Portuguese defender received the ball on the overlap and whipped a cross into the six-yard box where Long sneaked in front of Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi to score.

A late Welbeck header ensured Arsenal took all three points despite a below-par performance.

In other Premier League matchday 33 clash Manchester United defeated rivals Man City 2 - 3 at the Etihad, Liverpool played a goalless draw with Everton.

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

Welbeck had just missed a sitter when he connected with the victor, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang also scored for the Gunners.

It looked like the Saints had snatched a point on 73 minutes when substitute Charlie Austin turned in Soares' cross with nearly his first touch of the game.

Welbeck should have grabbed the lead for the home side five minutes later but he failed to convert from with the net gaping.

Southampton were arguably deserving of a point, but Welbeck struck again in the final 10 minutes of the match, to atone for an earlier miss and find the points for his team, despite the game descending into chaos as nerves showed on both sides.

He said: "It's just disappointing we couldn't get something out of the game".

Wenger made seven changes from the side that beat CSKA 4-1 in their quarter-final first leg on Thursday with securing a return to the Champions League by winning the Europa League now Arsenal's priority for the rest of the season.

Welbeck stated afterwards: "It's a competitive game, Saints are in a hard position, same as us".

However, the England striker made up for his miss nine minutes before time for the hosts with a header at the back post, 3-2.

Wenger introduced Wilshere in place of Reiss Nelson, who faded on his first Premier League start but a goal from the visitors felt inevitable.

"I'm happy with the assist and glad to get the goals".
