Welbeck's brace helps Arsenal overcome Southampton 3-2 at Emirate

The south-coast club are now playing against Arsenal at The Emirates and they took an unlikely 0-1 lead thanks to everyone's favourite Tipperary man.

Danny Welbeck's goal now separates Arsenal and Southampton at the Emirates, but the Englishman also turned provider with a wonderful assist for Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's equaliser.

DANNY WELBECK SCORED twice as Arsenal stretched their winning run in all competitions to six games with a hard-fought 3-2 victory over relegation-threatened Southampton.

Arsenal came real close to adding to their lead but the defence of Southampton remained resolute to make sure the scoreline does not become embarrassing.

However, while admitting the rivalry with the Frenchman did "get a little bit silly" in the past, Hughes is still full of praise for the longest-serving manager now in England's top flight.

And while there was still some football to be played, Jack Stephens saw red for flinging Jack Wilshere to the ground after reacting to having his shirt torn by the Arsenal man. In the game we found the resources to win.

Arsenal already have one foot in the last four of the Europa League following their 4-1 thrashing of CSKA Moscow in the first leg of their quarter-final clash on Thursday.

There were chances at either end before Welbeck grabbed his first goal minutes before the break, only for Charlie Austin to rekindle the visitors' hopes after some brilliant work from Cedric.

Welbeck missed a great chance to put Arsenal back ahead when he fired over from three yards out after Wilshere had hooked the ball across goal.

He'd get his goal in the 81st minute, stabbing home a header at the back post from an Iwobi cross.

Welbeck's deflected shot then made it 2-1 to the host before half-time.

But the England worldwide made no mistake nine minutes from time when he headed Iwobi's delivery to the back post beyond McCarthy.

"Clearly we've got talented players - you've seen that today - we just need that element of determination and ability to affect the opposition when the going gets tough". I know when I get the opportunity in front of goal I will put them away.
