  • Henrikh Mkhitaryan picked up a knee injury in Arsenal's Europa League win vs CSKA Moscow

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

A sparcely populated Emirates watched the Gunners go a goal down when Shane Long skipped across an indecisive Shkodran Mustafi to poke home on 17 minutes. It was the England forward's first league goal since September.

Long made Cech work again when he rose to meet a Ryan Bertrand corner and showed sharp reactions to divert Cedric's effort into the back of the net with just over an hour gone, a warning fired even if the flag was raised.

While West Ham moved six points clear of the relegation zone, Chelsea fans vented their frustration after the latest in a series of poor results.

Hart produced a brilliant flying save to deny Marcos Alonso a winning goal.

The goal meant statistics showed Aubameyang has now been involved in seven league goals this term - six goals and one assist - the most of any Arsenal player in their first seven appearances for the club since 1992, the year football was invented.

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

Trump Promises Long Term Wins Over China With Tariffs
Meanwhile, Trump said the spat with China may hurt the markets in the short term, but America will emerge stronger from it. The Chinese list included soybeans, the biggest United States export to China, and aircraft up to 45 tons in weight.

"My team-mates and the coach believe in me and, when you are not as good as you want to be, it is hard, so now I am happy and everything is alright".

'He had every reason to feel sorry for himself and think this mountain is too big to climb.

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.

The second-half started with a poor performance from the hosts, which saw Southampton pressing Arsenal to get the equalizer and managed to do so in the 73rd minute through Charlie Austin.

Yet Welbeck did not dwell on that very bad miss and instead popped up at the back post to head home Alex Iwobi's cross in the 81st minute.

An action-packed encounter descended into chaos in the closing moments as Jack Stephens and Mohamed Elneny saw red for angry reactions, but while Arsenal, on course for the Europe League semi-finals, can savour a sixth straight win in all competitions, Hughes' imperilled side remain three points from safety.
