Arsenal were misfiring until Aubameyang started and finished a flowing move with a deft finish past the onrushing Alex McCarthy following Welbeck's inventive flick - the Gabon striker having now scored six goals in his first eight league games.

He said: "It's just disappointing we couldn't get something out of the game".

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.

Arsenal came back from 1-0 down to beat Southampton 3-2 in a memorable match at the Emirates. The Mexico forward equalized with a brilliant finish after Marko Arnautovic cut the ball back.

Elneny received the red card on the 91st minute of Arsenal's game against Southampton, which ended by a 3-2 victory to Arsenal.

Aubameyang's goals won't do much to salvage this sorry league campaign for Arsenal, but at least they offer a bit of hope for the future - as well as bailing out the deficiencies in defence.

Shane Long gave them the lead after 17 minutes, nipping in ahead of defender Shkodran Mustafi.

Welbeck made it 2-1 for Arsenal in the 38th minute of the first half when he fired in Iwobi's delightful pass.

'Danny Welbeck is getting sharper, because he has been out for a while, ' said Wenger.

Lacazette acknowledges that he found it tough while stuck on the sidelines and unable to prove his worth to those asking questions of him, but believes he is through the worst and has promised Arsenal supporters that there is plenty more to come from him.

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 they remain in the drop zone, three points adrift of safety. "I have seen him behave (well) when it was really tough so he deserves everything he gets".

Charlie Austin restored parity for Southampton in the 73rd minute but Welbeck got the victor eight minutes later.

Mohamed Elneny was also sent off for a tamer push on Cedric Soares as the game descended further into chaos in stoppage time, although Arsenal were beyond caring at that point.
