However, Arsenal had to fight back from a goal down, while Charlie Austin's 74th-minute strike looked to have given Mark Hughes's side a share of the spoils.

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.

The Portuguese defender received the ball on the overlap and whipped a cross into the six-yard box where Long sneaked in front of Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi to score.

Yet the opening goal only served to kick-start Wenger's side out of their slumbering state.

However, Welbeck teed up Aubameyang for his sixth goal in eight games since joining for a club-record fee from Borussia Dortmund and then put Arsenal in front before the break.

It is just one win in 19 league matches now and they have conceded six goals in two league games since Hughes replaced the sacked Mauricio Pellegrino in the middle of March.

Southampton chased an equaliser, Long and Pierre-Emile Højbjerg testing Cech, Wesley Hoedt forcing Elneny to clear his header off the line.

Danny Welbeck will make all the headlines from this game.

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.

The Gabon worldwide has scored five goals in his first six Premier League games following his arrival from Borussia Dortmund in January, thus, becoming the first player to achieve that feat at the Emirates outfit.

Super Eagles forward, Alex Iwobi, was involved in two out of Arsenal's three goals that saw of Southampton in a Premier League encounter at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Statistics do not always tell the full story, especially in a game when Southampton gave so much, but the numbers are stacking up against them with time running out.

Danny Welbeck netted a brace in a game which saw both sides end with only 10 men.

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

Another England World Cup hopeful was heavily involved as the injury-ravaged Welbeck netted his first league goals since September.
