Danny Welbeck brace enough for Arsenal to see off lowly Southampton

Offside

He added: "I think we can play together like Sunday [against Stoke]".

Long made Cech work again when he rose to meet a Ryan Bertrand corner and showed sharp reactions to divert Cedric's effort into the back of the net with just over an hour gone, a warning fired even if the flag was raised.

"He makes it look easy and a very good goal from an Arsenal point of view but from a Southampton point of view there are so many mistakes we haven't got enough time to go through it".

- Southampton have lost three successive away league matches conceding at least three goals in each for the first time since September 2013, under Nigel Adkins (a run of four).

- In fact, only Wayne Rooney (7) and Robin Van Persie (6) have scored more Premier League goals against Petr Cech than Shane Long (5).

Chelsea played a large part in their own downfall as Gary Cahill's wayward header allowed Marko Arnautovic to pull the ball back in the Mexican's path to slam past Thibaut Courtois.

Hart produced a brilliant flying save to deny Marcos Alonso a winning goal.

McCarthy had to be alert at the start of the second half to make smart saves from Aubameyang and Xhaka with Iwobi also drawing another stop as Arsenal looked to kill off the game.

Zuma and the ANC will go down in history as having sold out the working class", Hlubi-Majola said. Firstly‚ the Zuma family we did not mobilise any support nor are we in the business of such.

But Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang equalized with a fine finish shortly afterward, taking his tally to six goals in seven games since his winter transfer from Borussia Dortmund.

'Danny Welbeck is getting sharper, because he has been out for a while, ' said Wenger. "I have seen him behave (well) when it was really tough so he deserves everything he gets".

"I felt that he has shown in glimpses that he has big potential".

"People were questioning whether he would come back and I believe what he has done is exceptional".

In a wild last few minutes Mohamed Elneny and Southampton's Jack Stephens were sent off in separate incidents.

Substitute Charlie Austin appeared to have grabbed a point when he scored within two minutes of his introduction, the striker on hand to turn home Cedric's cross, but the Saints could not hold on and they remain in the drop zone, three points adrift of safety.

Charlie Austin restored parity for Southampton in the 73rd minute but Welbeck got the victor eight minutes later.
