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

That's Sanchez- Wenger hails Arsenal match-winner That's Sanchez- Wenger hails Arsenal match-winner

Sanchez struck the opener on the hour mark at St Mary's before Olivier Giroud came off the bench to make sure of the points with a close-range header.

"That's Alexis", Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.

Wenger confirmed former Southampton man Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was forced off in the first half with a hamstring problem - but is hoping it was mainly fatigue for the England worldwide. We knew in the second half we could score goals.

"I never questioned the character of my side because it is not because you lose games that people expect you to win that show you have no character", Wenger said after the match.

Wenger also hailed the character of his side after they continued their resurgence following a bad run of form which saw them go from title contenders to sixth in the table - pointing to the FA Cup semi-final win over Manchester City as the turning point.

Having previously taken two points from a possible 24 in away games against current top-half teams, victory was a welcome tonic. Let's not go too quickly to conclusions, and focus and give everything at Stoke on Saturday.We know we can only win our games, and we had a strong performance on Sunday. "It's a tight hamstring".

Arsenal went into the game on the back of a 2-0 win over Manchester United and procured the first sight of goal, with Aaron Ramsey firing wide after a foray by Oxlade-Chamberlain.

Shkodran Mustafi's tackle on Dusan Tadic presented Manolo Gabbiadini with a one-on-one chance, but Petr Cech narrowed the angles well and the Gunners' slackness was surmised when Danny Welbeck's excellent flick found Ozil but the German rejected a physical battle with Jack Stephens and the chance dissipated.

Ajax withstands Lyon comeback to reach Europa League final
Lyon could face a European ban after being charged by UEFA for supporters' actions in their Europa League exit on Thursday. But the hosts still have more work to do if they want to continue in the same situation.

Sanchez had been quiet, but with 15 minutes on the clock in the second period he made the breakthrough. He's very good in short space, and in the box.

Arsenal saw out victory with little trouble to complete a first league win at Southampton since their famous "Invincibles" season of 2003-04.

On top of that, their home struggles continue and Claude Puel looks more and more under pressure.

"It's often the same result against the big six, we can not find the good win against one of these teams", he said.

"We can not find a win".

Sanchez was anonymous in the first half and was guilty of passing straight to Saints players to kill two chances shortly after the interval, but the Chilean's next involvement was breathtaking.

"For me, we deserved minimum a draw and maybe a win".

"It seems we had all the good situations in the first half, but second half for them just one situation is enough to score and this is hard to accept".
