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

Danny Welbeck ended a goalless run of 16 Premier League matches when he scored two and assisted the other as Arsenal overcame a spirited Southampton at Emirates Stadium.

Arsenal, coming from a heart-warming 4-1 victory over Russian team, CSKA Moscow in the Europa League were shaken out of their reverie when Shane Long drew the first blood, putting the Saints ahead in the 17th minute.

Welbeck put the hosts ahead as he collected Alex Iwobi's slide-rule pass before cutting inside and seeing his shot deflect in off the heel of Maya Yoshida.

The second half saw both sides trade blows but the fourth goal of the game would go to Southampton, as substitute Charlie Austin finished off Soares's low cross to centre.

And Southampton's survival hopes suffered another blow when defender Jack Stephens was sent-off for an off the ball clash with Jack Wilshere in stoppage time, with Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny also shown a red card for shoving Cedric Soares in the face.

A precious point was there to be snaffled and, having ruined their first league game under Mark Hughes with a wretched collapse against West Ham last Saturday, that unfamiliar sensation Southampton were experiencing was a surge of optimism.

The reigning champions now trail Tottenham and Liverpool by 10 points with just six games left to salvage a place in the Champions League next season. "In the end I got the (second) goal".

Former South Korean President Park found guilty
The fact that she never married or had children was part of her appeal, given the nepotistic tendencies of many senior officials. While this scandal has been roiling South Korea, another former president has found himself in hot water.

Arsenal started the match with four wins on the trot fully expecting to make it five on a wet afternoon in front of swaths of empty seats and a terrible atmosphere.

Arsenal went through the motions on Sunday night as they picked up all three points despite being made to sweat in the first quarter of the match as Southampton took the lead.

The 18-year-old has been described as one of the brightest young talents to have come up through Arsenal's academy, and today he made his full Premier League debut against Southampton.

In fact, only Wayne Rooney (seven) and Robin van Persie (six) have scored more Premier League goals against Petr Cech than Shane Long (five).

"The advice I'd give my youngster self is to always believe in what you're doing".

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