Iwobi makes two assists in Arsenal win over Southampton

Arsenal host Southampton

Nigeria global, Alex Iwobi, put up a good show on Sunday as he provided two assists that aided Arsenal's 3-2 win over Southampton in their Premier League clash at the Emirates.

This was the clearest indication yet that Arsene Wenger is now prioritising the Europa League over the Premier League as he made seven changes from Thursday's win over CSKA Moscow, with Jack Wilshere and Mesut Ozil on the bench and Laurent Koscielny and Aaron Ramsey rested completely.

Southampton struck first, when a mistake from Shkodran Mustafi in the 17th minute allowed Shane Long to find the incoming cross and put it past Petr Cech.

Welbeck put the Gunners ahead ten minutes later, with a powerful shot from just outside the box that glanced off of Maya Yoshida and went looping over McCarthy.

However, substitute Charlie Austin pulled the Saints level with a tap-in in the 73rd minute.

The Nokia 7 Plus is backed by Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 mobile platform, which comes along with 4GB RAM and 64GB internal storage . The Nokia 7 Plus Android One was first unveiled back in February this year at Mobile World Congress (MWC) in Barcelona, Spain.

Welbeck scored a late victor for Arsenal to inflict more misery on Mark Hughes' Southampton side.

Both sides ended the match with 10 men after Arsenal's Mohamed Elneny and Southampton's Jack Stephens were sent off late on.

There are six games left for Southampton, who are three points below 17th-placed Crystal Palace, and Welbeck's second goal was the cue for a loss of composure from Stephens, who accepted the bait when he felt Wilshere nibbling at him.

Both Aubameyang and Granit Xhaka forced top end saves out of McCarthy in the first three minutes of the second half.

The Gunners have a 4-1 advantage from the first leg. The official stats don't reflect the reality on our TV screens, however, as in recent Premier League games against Stoke and Watford, there were clearly rows and rows of empty seats, and the same was evident on Sunday against Southampton.

Utah has held 14 of its last 17 opponents below 100 points, limiting teams to just 42.4 percent shooting over that stretch. Quinn Cook scored 12 points and Draymond Green added nine for Golden State, which saw its three-game winning streak end.

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

Long looked like he had restored the deadlock and the away support had a moment's joy only to see the flag up.

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.

"I'm happy with the assist and glad to get the goals", he said.

"People were questioning whether he would come back and I believe what he has done is exceptional".

It would be utter humiliation for United to see City, the noisy neighbor, winning the league on derby day and in record time, too. He was interested in Mhikitarian and Pogba playing with us? "That's what our fans deserve".

"I'm pleased for him because he has been through hard times", said Wenger.
