Arsenal beats Southampton 2-0, climbs into 5th in EPL

It hasn't been a great season on the South Coast

It hasn't been a great season on the South Coast

Alexis Sanchez reached 20 league goals in a season for the first time as he inspired Arsenal's 2-0 win at Southampton that narrows the gap to the Premier League's top four.

Manager Arsene Wenger said: "Overall I thought it was a convincing win".

"We have another clean sheet, we are more stable defensively and I know we can go forward and score goals". "He is always tricky to stop, very good in a short space once he has the ball in the box". Alexis never gives up and once he has the ball in the box he is always risky.

"But now we have three games and we have to give everything to try and get everything out of all the games".

Giroud settled the contest with a late header and Wenger admitted the form of his frontmen has left him with a selection headache.

"It's often the same result against the big six, we can not find the good win against one of these teams", he said. I'm happy. Arsenal belong as one of the best clubs in the world and London is a great place to be, a great city to live in.

Midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had picked up a hamstring injury but Wenger said that the injury was not serious. Let's not go too quickly to conclusions, and focus and give everything at Stoke on Saturday.

"We need to be more potent, we are aware of that, and we would love to address that over the final two games".

Former Arsenal defender Laureano Etamé-Mayer on Wednesday said pressure would not force Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger to resign.

Win their two remaining games and end up on 76 points and there's nothing Arsenal can do, as 12 points from the Gunners' four remaining games leaves them languishing on 75.

"It was tough in the first half but then we found the opening and deserved to win".

Mid-table Southampton rarely threatened.

With six minutes left, Arsenal made sure of the points when Sanchez and Ramsey combined to set up Giroud, who had the relatively simple task of heading home from close range.

The futures of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez have undoubtedly been the dominating narrative throughout the season for Arsenal football club.

Ozil too came to the party with an incisive first-time pass to dissect the Saints backline and find Sanchez, who sat Maya Yoshida and Stephens down with a juddering turn before beating the onrushing Fraser Forster.
