Arsenal 3-2 Southampton

Match summary

8 Apr 2018
Arsenal v Southampton

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.
