And that's full-time!

Congratulations to Arsenal on a vital win in their hunt to reach the top four.

Three minutes of the added stuff...

Boufal is in behind the Arsenal back four but at an angle. He elects to try to catch Cech out at the near post but hammers it into the side netting.

85' 

That is surely it now. Arsenal up to fifth.

Boufal jinks this way and that to carve out a chance for himself on the edge of the box. However, leaning back, he leathers the ball high and wide.

76' 

Sanchez wins a corner and Arsenal are taking their time to take it – much to the frustration of the home support. It is eventually swung over to Monreal who heads back into the box but Cedric clears.

74' 

Southampton make nothing of the free-kick as Arsenal clear.

CHANCE! Bertrand whips a devilish ball into the far post that Ward-Prowse heads over the bar.

68' 

Xhaka stings the palms of Forster with an effort from distance.

66' 

He might not be able to take throw ins but he can score goals. This is his most prolific season now with 20 in the league.

64'

Southampton concede their 400th Premier League home goal. Dion Dublin was the first player to score a PL away goal against the Saints, in Manchester United's 1-0 win at The Dell on 24 August 1992.

62' 

Decent company.

  • Alexis Sánchez

58' 

Redmond looks for Bertrand in behind but there is too much on it and Arsenal break…

56' 

This half is following the same pattern as the first – Arsenal are having a lot of the ball but the home side continue to threaten on the break.

53' 

Davis appears afraid of shooting as he twice turns down openings to hit it to whip a cross to no one at the back post. Tut, tut.

51' 

Foul throw from Sanchez! Give that man £300,000-a-week sharpish.

49' 

Arsenal MUST win this if they have any designs on making the top four.

47'

Manolo Gabbiadini had two shots in the first half, one of which on goal. Gabbiadini has failed to score in his last five PL appearances (excluding today), after he netted four in his first three PL matches.

45' 

We are back at St Mary’s stadium.

45+1' 

That is half-time – Arsenal have dominated possession but Southampton have had the better chances though Redmond and Gabbiadini.

45'  

Arsenal make little of the resultant free-kick.

42' 

Nathan Redmond takes advantage of the ridiculous amount of space offered to him by the Arsenal by drawing a fine save from Petr Cech.

40' 

Gabbiadini takes the free-kick, and while he gets it up and over the wall, it is off target.

38' 

Mustafi with what can only be described as a reducer on Tadic. He won the ball but he was probably not in control. Decent decision from Jon Moss to give a free-kick 20-odd yards out.

Oxlade-Chamberlain can’t continue.

35' 

Oxlade-Chamberlain looks like he has done a hammy. Bellerin preparing to come on.

34' 

This game has come to life a bit. Now Stephens has to make a last-ditch challenge at the other end to deny Ozil.

32' 

A top save indeed.

31'

Big, big save from Cech. Redmond finds Tadic but Mustafi’s last-ditch challenge sees the ball into Gabbiadini’s path. He is in on Cech who spreads his frame well to block.

30' 

It has been all Arsenal but fairly boring thus far...

30' 

Ozil finds Sanchez wide left but his attempted curler is blocked.

28'

Arsenal have scored 66 PL goals this season, already one more than in the entire 2015/16 campaign (65).

25' 

Gabbiadini tracks Holding all the way back into his own half and snares the ball from the defender. However, the home side can’t capitalise as a potential break is brought to an end by a stray pass.

22' 

Arsenal are all over the Saints now but have yet to create a clear-cut chance.

19' 

Oxlade-Chamberlain has been a revelation in the wing-back role and he has been a constant outlet for Arsenal this half. If they do make a breakthrough, one feels it will be down his side.

16' 

Arsenal are starting to look more comfortable in this three-at-the-back formation, and play the ball out nicely from the back.

14' 

Redmond finds Gabbiadini in the channel and he thrashes a ball across the box but Cech claims.

12' 

Arsenal coming into this game now – Oxlade-Chamberlain ghosts in from the right and finds Ramsey, who snatches at it and misses the target.

9' 

Arsenal have lost on both of their last two Premier League visits to St. Mary's Stadium, 2-0 on New Year's Day 2015 and 4-0 on Boxing Day 2015. The Gunners are only on a current longer PL away losing streak versus Chelsea (5).

7' 

Holding brings the ball out from the back and finds Welbeck, but it comes to nothing.

5' 

Nathan Redmond is currently getting some joy in behind the Ox and having got on to a ball over the top, he set up Steven Davis whose shot is always rising.

3'

This will be Alexis Sánchez's 100th PL appearance (48 goals). Only Thierry Henry (83) and Ian Wright (87) reached 50 PL goals for Arsenal in their first 100 PL appearances for the club (Olivier Giroud 113, Dennis Bergkamp 114, Robert Pires 137, Robin van Persie 142, Theo Walcott 208).

1' 

And we are off!

FUN FACT: Arsène Wenger's first league championship win as a manager was the 1987/88 Ligue 1 with AS Monaco. Claude Puel was a player in that title-winning team.
