Mesut Ozil On Bench - Arsenal Team vs Southampton Confirmed

Goals from Danny Welbeck (two) and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang gave Arsenal all three points, but they had to fight back from a goal down, and also grab a late victor after Southampton looked to have stolen a point.

Arsenal came back from 1-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2 in a memorable match at the Emirates.

A Cedric cross from the right did not look particularly unsafe, but goalkeeper Petr Cech and defender Shkodran Mustafi left it to each other and Long nipped in to poke home.

Long's last goal came against Crystal Palace in January where he also opened the lead before the Saints eventually went onto lose 2-1 at St. Mary's Stadium.

Though Arsene Wenger denied prioritising the Europa League over domestic league hopes ahead of Sunday's match, he rolled out a much-changed side from his club's victory against CSKA Moscow, earlier in the week as sixth-place Arsenal hosted Southampton.

But Welbeck ended up having the final say when he headed in from close range to hand Arsenal all three points. There were many standout performers for the Gunners, so with that said, here are my Arsenal player ratings vs Southampton. "In the end I got the (second) goal".

Danny Welbeck scored twice and set up the other as Arsenal ran out 3-2 winners against Southampton, with Jack Stephens and Mohamed Elneny both sent off late on.

Suzuki shines in defense, gets 1st hits since Mariners return
Indians starter Trevor Bauer allowed only two runs, three walks and five hits against seven strikeouts over five innings of work. The Indians took a 2-0 lead on Encarnacion's leadoff homer in the fourth, which hit the hand-operated scoreboard in left field.

They now lead their quarter-final tie with CSKA Moscow 4-1 after the first-leg.

"We want to win every game, we believe every win makes you stronger, and the team knows that as well".

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.

Yet he made amends for the miss soon after, nodding in Alex Iwobi's deep cross to the back post.

"I'm pleased for him because this guy has gone through hard times". They can win the Europa League this season to qualify for the Champions League, but making the Champions League this season through Premier League play is almost impossible as the team is 16 points back of fourth place.

And it was one of them who contributed heavily to the Saints' opening goal.
