Arsene Wenger delivers update on Aaron Ramsey Arsenal contract

Arsenal beat CSKA Moscow 4-1 in the first leg of their Europa League quarter-final

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.

Host Chelsea, which went ahead through Cesar Azpilicueta in the 36th minute, had been dominating the game and would probably have won it but for some excellent goalkeeping from Joe Hart.

But, after passing up one glorious chance, Welbeck headed home the victor nine minutes from time.

Substitute Charlie Austin appeared to have grabbed a point when he scored within two minutes of his introduction, the striker on hand to turn home Cedric's cross, but the Saints could not hold on and remain mired in the drop zone, three points adrift of safety.

It was a naive reaction and the way the centre-back lashed out left Andre Marriner with no option but to send him off. Mohamed Elneny would follow him down the tunnel - Arsène Wenger suggested Arsenal could appeal against the Egyptian midfielder's dismissal for pushing Soares - but the damage was already done.

They are now placed sixth in the log, 13 points adrift of the top four.

In Mark Hughes' second league game in charge of Southampton, the side showed obvious improvements from the week before, with Shane Long taking advantage of some weak defending to score the opener.

Allen was so happy with the song, in fact, that he jokingly admitted to the judges he may never sing it alone again. Spring was in a group of 12 singers that performed solos Sunday night and then duets with established stars Monday.

Hart produced a brilliant flying save to deny Marcos Alonso a winning goal.

At 18 years and 120 days, Reiss Nelson was the youngest Arsenal player to start a Premier League game since Serge Gnabry in September 2013.

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

"I am very pleased for him because he is a guy who went through a very hard time and has shown exceptional mental strength to come back", said Wenger.

"He had every reason to feel sorry for himself and think this mountain is too big to climb".

"I think I have repeated that I really like Danny Welbeck, I am very pleased for him because he is a guy who went through a very hard time and has shown exceptional mental strength to come back".
