Southampton matchwinner Danny Welbeck makes World Cup claim after big win

The Gunners trailed courtesy of Shane Long's early goal but hit back through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Danny Welbeck scored twice as Arsenal recovered from a series of setbacks to claim a 3-2 victory over Southampton and keep Mark Hughes' side deep in relegation trouble.

Southampton's defeat kept them in the bottom three, three points behind Crystal Palace but with a game in hand. There were many standout performers for the Gunners, so with that said, here are my Arsenal player ratings vs Southampton. Long is not the most prolific but he showed a poacher's instinct in opening the scoring with his second goal of the Premier League campaign, and his willingness to run the channels was vital against opponents who dominated possession.

Southampton's survival hopes suffered another blow when defender Jack Stephens was sent off for an off-the-ball clash with Jack Wilshere in stoppage time, with Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny also shown a red card for shoving Cedric Soares in the face.

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.

The win gives Arsene Wenger's side a boost before Thursday's Europa League quarterfinal second leg at CSKA Moscow.

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

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.

'He's got knee ligament damage, ' Wenger revealed after the game. When Welbeck somehow contrived to scoop the ball over the bar from three yards soon after, Arsenal supporters must have feared their chance to win the game had gone.

"I'm happy with the assist, glad to get the goals". 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. I know when I get the opportunity in front of goal I will put them away.
