Clean sheet takes Arsenal closer to a Top Four spot

Germany global of Turkish origin Mesut Ozil will star being centre-forward Welbeck, along with Alexis Sanchez.

Chile global Sanchez, 28, has now scored 20 goals in a league season for the first time in a career that has also featured spells with Udinese and Barcelona.

"That's Alexis, you know".

Arsenal's Alexis Sanchez gives a thumbs up during the English Premier League soccer match between Southampton and Arsenal at St Mary's stadium in Southampton, England, Wednesday, May 10, 2017. "Very good technique in a short space". Alexis Sanchez has been poor for the past month, yes he scored in games against Middlesbrough and Manchester City but he didn't play particularly well in either and has looked a player just hoping for the season to end. He's always a slow starter and gets stronger and stronger.

"It was a very even game in the first half but in the second half I felt we took over and created many opportunities to score".

Yet Sanchez became an increasingly pivotal figure after the break and opened the scoring with a fine piece of individual skill before playing a role in the second goal, crossing for Aaron Ramsey, who looped it up for Giroud to head in. Wenger had dropped Giroud in favour of Danny Welbeck for the last two games, but praised the French striker for his ability to have an impact.

Southampton manager Claude Puel made a decision to introduce fresh legs, with Jay Rodriguez replacing Dusan Tadic in a desperate bid to equalise but it was Arsenal's Olivier Giroud who had barely touched the ball after replacing Danny Welbeck that nodded home the ball with seven minutes left on the clock. And both of them have played well, and both of them have a great team spirit as well.

After a spell of six league defeats in 11 games, Wenger's side went from title contenders to sixth place.

Well, I wish we'd found it [good form] before. "It's not because you lose games people expect you to win that you have "no character". A strong performance today. Everybody played well, so let's just continue.

Arsenal went into this match needing a win but also having to address woeful away form that had seen them take two points from a possible 24 on the road against current top-half teams.

The win means Arsenal move above Manchester United into fifth, three points behind fourth-placed Manchester City.

Arsenal's remaining games are against Stoke, Sunderland and Everton, and they will likely need to win all three to have a chance.

He said: "It's a hamstring problem but we don't know how bad it is".
