Danny Welbeck inspired Arsenal to a sixth straight victory with two goals and an assist in a hot-tempered 3-2 home win over Southampton, to leave the Saints still rooted in the relegation zone.

Wenger made five changes from the team that beat CSKA Moscow 4-1 in the Europa League quarter final first leg at the Emirates.

The England global had found the net in the first half too, his deflected drive making it 2-1 after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang's poked finish had cancelled out Shane Long's early opener for the visitors.

Danny Welbeck then put the Gunners ahead after cutting inside and firing a right-footed shot that flew off the back of left-back Maya Yoshida and past keeper Alex McCarthy to put the home side 2-1 up seven minutes before the interval.

The Saints were level in the second half thanks to super sub Charlie Austin, but Welbeck headed in the victor for the hosts.

Cosby jury filled as defense alleges discrimination
All six alternates - half of them black - were picked without incident after an earlier showdown over the jury's racial makeup. Cosby's lawyers scored a pair of rulings Tuesday crucial to their strategy of painting his accuser as a money-grubbing liar.

A late Welbeck header ensured Arsenal took all three points despite a below-par performance.

Jack Stephens was sent off for Saints in stoppage time, and Mohamed Elneny was also shown a red card in the aftermath of the same scrum.

Southampton are three points behind 17th placed Crystal Palace but with a game in hand.

Charlie Austin looked to have earned a hard-fought point when he equalised (73) with only his second touch from the bench, but Welbeck scored his second of the game just eight minutes later and the header proved decisive. And I've seen him behave when it was really hard and tough, so he deserves everything he gets.

Arsenal have won six matches in a row in all competitions for the first time since May 2017.

"I'm excited for him today because I remember making my debut and I'm sure you were the same Slaven, the butterflies, that feeling that he's going to get today".

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

"I personally feel for what we have gone through and the way we have recovered, this team deserves huge credit because we were questioned really".
