Wenger in a Welbeck wonderland after win

"Southampton are a team who have good technical quality and I am quite surprised to find them where they are", he said.

The 18-year-old forward Reiss Nelson made his first Premier League start for Arsenal and was given a rude welcome from Southampton midfielder Dusan Tadic, who was fortunate to escape a booking for his risky tackle in the opening minutes.

Maybe I'm falling into the same trap I always fall in to, but I'm excited for next season because, on paper, this club does not have many weaknesses.

Aubameyang will not be traveling to Russian Federation for the second leg of Europa League quarter-finals clash against CSKA Moscow later in the week as he is not eligible to play for Arsenal in Europe this season.

I recognize that Arsenal signed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to score goals, and he is doing that, but I'm more in tune with his clear exuberance on the pitch.

Southampton: Alex McCarthy 7, Cedric Soares 7, Maya Yoshida 6, Jack Stephens 5, Wesley Hoedt 6, Ryan Bertrand 6, Oriol Romeu 6, Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg 7, James Ward-Prowse 7, Dusan Tadic 5, Shane Long 7.

"Southampton were leading, they came back to 2-2, and every time I believe we have shown great spirit, even if at the end of the game it was a bit hectic", said Wenger.

- Danny Welbeck both scored and assisted in a Premier League match for the first time since September (v Bournemouth), which was also the last time he netted a league goal.

A Premier League trophy on the Emirates continues to elude them although, now 14 seasons since their final triumph when the invincible's gained in 2004.

Mark Hughes then took over but, after Sunday's 3-2 defeat away to Arsenal, Southampton have won just one of their last 19 league games and are now three points adrift of 17th-placed Crystal Palace.

Goalscorer Charlie Austin echoed his manager's frustration.

Southampton boss Mark Hughes, speaking to Sky Sports: "We have hard games coming up, we know that but we have to show qualities and strength in our mindset".

"The World Cup will take care of itself - I don't pick the team", he told Arsenal's official website.
