Arsenal 3-2 Southampton: Welbeck gets last laugh

Nathaniel Clyne celebrates scoring the winning goal in Southampton's 2-1 win at Arsenal in a League Cup third round clash from 2014

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.

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

A brilliant display from Danny Welbeck saw Arsenal come from behind to eventually beat relegation-threatened Southampton 3-2 in a gripping encounter at the Emirates Stadium.

Southampton's defeat kept them in the bottom three, three points behind Crystal Palace but with a game in hand.

Despite today's scoreline, Arsenal have struggled in the Premier League this year, with the club now occupying 6th spot in the table.

The England forward had not scored a single league goal since September previous year, but proved the catalyst for a much-changed Arsenal side ahead of their Europa League quarter-final second leg at CSKA Moscow on Thursday.

Jack Stephens was sent off for Saints in stoppage time, and Mohamed Elneny was also shown a red card in the aftermath of the same scrum.

A sparse home crowd bristled as their side laboured but Aubameyang hauled them back into the contest just before the half-hour mark, the finish on the stretch scruffy but the back-flick into his path from Welbeck inspired.

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

It was Charlie Austin who made the breakthrough to draw level, just a minute after being brought on as a sub.

"We want to win every game, we believe every win makes you stronger, and the team knows that as well".

It took the Hammers only 17 minutes to take a 2 goal lead, and a third was deservedly added before the teams made their way back to the dressing room for half-time. "That's what I said many times, and I'm happy he shows it".

McCarthy had little chance with the goal but did at least keep the gap at one in the early stages of the second half, turning away shots from Aubameyang and Granit Xhaka in quick succession, though it was far from one-way traffic.
