Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger hailed the "exceptional" Danny Welbeck for getting back to his best after his many injury problems, as the forward netted a brace in Sunday's 3-2 win over Southampton.

Southampton went on to break the deadlock on 17 minutes as Cedric Soares crossed the ball into the box past Sead Kolasinac, and with Petr Cech and Shkodran Mustafi hesitating, Shane Long pounced to poke the ball into the net.

The in-form winger cut inside from the left and burst through the Saints defence to fire past a despairing Alex McCarthy, with his shot taking a significant deflection off Maya Yoshida.

Southampton then equalised when substitute Charlie Austin turned in Cedric Soares' cross but Welbeck headed Arsenal back in front after both sides missed a string of chances, leaving the visitors deep in relegation trouble.

Danny Welbeck scored two and beautifully set up another to secure the three points for Arsenal.

Arsenal did finish with 10 men when Mohamed Elneny saw red for a hand in the face of Cedric Soares, but Wenger believed the game should be remembered most for Welbeck's first Premier League goals since September a year ago.

The Gunners have scored three or more goals in five successive home games in all competitions for the first time since their opening six matches of the 1958-59 season. Arsenal leads 4-1 from the first.




In other Premier League matchday 33 clash Manchester United defeated rivals Man City 2 - 3 at the Etihad, Liverpool played a goalless draw with Everton. "I know when I get the opportunities in front of goal I will put them away - apart from the one I put over", said Welbeck.

This isn't the first time that Long has gotten on the score-sheet against Arsenal.

"I'm personally very happy and pleased for him, because this guy has gone through some hard times".

It took us some time to get to the pace of the game.

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

Saints were starting to come back into the contest and Cech was on hand again to keep out a long-range Hoedt strike as Gunners boss Wenger reacted by introducing Wilshere and Alexandre Lacazette from the bench.

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.
