Danny Welbeck netted a brace as Arsenal recorded a 3-2 win over Southampton in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

But with just nine minutes left on the clock, Welbeck grabbed the victor, moments after a poor miss from close range.

Welbeck is in contention to feature for England in Russian Federation this summer after being included in Gareth Southgate's most recent squad, but the forward is only looking to take things one game at a time, starting with Thursday's meeting with CSKA Moscow.

But Welbeck missed a golden opportunity to fire his side in front shortly after Austin's equaliser. "The World Cup will take care of itself - I don't pick the team".

A dramatic finish saw Jack Wilshere tangle with Jack Stephens - the Saints man was shown a straight red, while Mohamed Elneny was also dismissed for a push to the face.

Anyway, without further ado, here are my Arsenal player ratings vs Southampton.

We levelled things up ten minutes later and it was a lovely goal with great interplay between Alex Iwobi and Danny Welbeck leading to Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang prodding home for 1-1.

Welbeck then grabbed his first in seven league games when his effort from outside the box was deflected past goalkeeper Alex McCarthy via the unfortunate Maya Yoshida's boot.

James Ward-Prowse should have given the Saints the lead in the eighth minute after going through on goal following a counter-attack but his strike was cleared off the line.

It looked like the Saints had snatched a point on 73 minutes when substitute Charlie Austin turned in Soares' cross with nearly his first touch of the game.
