Arsenal ease past Southampton and climb to fourth

Arsenal ease past Southampton and climb to fourth

Southampton, by contrast, looked a shadow of the team that won the reverse fixture at St Mary's in December, registering only three shots in the opening half to the Gunners' 11.

The kick-off time for the match is 8:45 pm.

First up on six minutes was Lacazette, who was alert while some of his teammates pleaded for a penalty for a possible foul on Lucas Torreira by Jack Stephens.

The transfer chief is expected to hold talks with Roma president James Pallotta before making a final decision on his future. The Frenchman had been played onside by Jan Bednarek.

Bournemouth will be looking to steal one off Arsenal. Once again, Ralph Hasenhuttl's men were made to pay nearly instantly as Jack Stephens miscued a backpass with keeper Angus Gunn closed down by Alex Iwobi.

Arsenal doubled their lead in comical circumstances when Gunn's poor clearance landed perfectly for Iwobi, whose deflected cross fell nicely for Mkhitaryan to slide the ball inside the far post.

Iran's Zarif signs Armenia deals, continuing duties
The US-educated veteran diplomat helped craft the pact that curbed Iran's nuclear program in return for sanctions relief. However, it came after Zarif was not present for a meeting with Syrian President Bashar al-Assad on Monday.

Southampton improved after the break having switched from an ungainly five at the back to a more effective 4-3-3 but Arsenal largely kept them at arm's length.

Granit Xhaka will retain his position in midfield and Matteo Guendouzi is expected to start alongside him.

Arsenal have continually coughed up goals and chances to grateful opponents this season but they were steadfast here, with goalkeeper Bernd Leno commanding at the back.

"The second goal was a disgusting mistake where we don't have to take such a risk", a rather downcast Saints manager Ralph Hassenhuettl told reporters.

The visitors brought on Michael Obafemi, who had only just returned from injury, but within 20 minutes he came off with a knock to his ankle.
