Arsenal just edged Southampton in the end, in a game which finished Arsenal 3-2 Southampton.

Shane Long gave them the lead after 17 minutes, nipping in ahead of defender Shkodran Mustafi.

Arsenal ramped up the pressure on fifth-placed Chelsea with a 3-2 victory against Southampton at home.

The Gunners head into the clash the favourite as they have managed to win all five all their last five games in all competition, while Southampton are who are now 18th in the Premier League log table are battling for safety in the League.

Welbeck scored a late victor for Arsenal to inflict more misery on Mark Hughes' Southampton side.

Cedric Soares helped him end this particular drought today with a searching cross into Arsenal's penalty area, with which Long managed to connect his left foot from the right side of the six-yard box, rippling the bottom left corner of Arsenal's goal.

The game ended in bad-tempered fashion, with Southampton's Jack Stephens and Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny both sent off in the closing stages. In the game we found the resources to win.

China Strikes Back at the US With Plans for Its Own Tariffs
The U.S. government is inviting public comment on its trade sanctions through May 11 and will hold a hearing on the plan May 15. As for the scuffle with China, Kotok said he's hopeful that much of this is bluster from the Trump administration .

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 Saints were level in the second half thanks to super sub Charlie Austin, but Welbeck headed in the victor for the hosts.

"I've got the utmost respect for Arsene".

Welbeck's recall suggests he is in contention to make the squad for Russian Federation, though he refuses to look beyond Thursday's Europa League tie against CSKA Moscow.

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 know when I get the opportunities in front of goal, I will put them away - apart from the one I put over!

"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".
