English Premier League Report: Arsenal v Southampton 08 April 2018

Arsenal host Southampton

Nigeria worldwide, Alex Iwobi, put up a good show on Sunday as he provided two assists that aided Arsenal's 3-2 win over Southampton in their Premier League clash at the Emirates.

The win was Arsenal's sixth straight in all competitions and came despite Arsenal resting a number of his regular starters ahead of Thursday's second leg of their Europa League quarterfinal against CSKA Moscow.

The former Manchester United man then gave his team the advantage with a deflected strike after cutting in from the left, but the Gunners were again guilty of slack defending as Charlie Austin levelled the scores with 17 minutes left on the clock.

Welbeck came up trumps as Arsenal walked away with all three points.

Mohamed Elneny was also shown red before the end of the game, for a lighter push on Southampton fullback Cedric Soares.

- Southampton haven't won any of their last six Premier League games in which they have opened the scoring (D4 L2).

The Gunners needed fifteen minutes to pull themselves together after the opening goal, and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang scored on their first real chance-after a flick-on from Danny Welbeck, Aubameyang just beat Southampton goalkeeper Alex McCarthy and another defender to the ball for the equalizer.

Long was celebrating a second of the afternoon only to see the goal rightly chalked off for offside as he steered Cedric's drive past Cech. Arsenal leads 4-1 from the first.

He sought treatment, and then perhaps the best therapy was being among players as an assistant captain at the Presidents Cup. In what is Tiger Woods' first Masters since 2015 , he is seeing a young and accomplished crop of golfers that he must catch.

Iwobi last scored a league goal for Arsenal this season against Crystal Palace on the 20th of January, 2018. It was the England forward's first league goal since September.

"I'm happy with the assist and glad to get the goals", he said.

"In the cup games he played earlier in the season he played as a wing-back and I don't think that suited him as much".

Wenger did rotate his squad for Arsenal's fifth home game in a row, resting Mesut Ozil and Aaron Ramsey as Reiss Nelson was handed a first start in the Premier League.

At 2-2, he missed an open goal but he didn't let that knock his confidence as he scored the victor soon afterwards.

The game looked to be petering out before an on-field coming-together between Jack Wilshere and Jack Stephens led to the latter being sent off.

"I personally feel for what we have gone through and the way we have recovered, this team deserves huge credit because we were questioned really".
