Unai Emery has to hope that this routine victory against Southampton can herald an injection of much-needed consistency in Arsenal’s pursuit of a top-four Premier League finish. The London club have tended to follow victory with defeat since early January but with Bournemouth next up at the Emirates Stadium on Wednesday night and their home form extremely good, they can sense an opportunity to construct the platform for a push.
The game was settled inside the opening 17 minutes, with Southampton particularly feeble during that period and ultimately unable to answer to answer the goals from Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan. The bonus came from Old Trafford, where Manchester United played out a stalemate with Liverpool, meaning that Arsenal leapfrogged United into fourth place.
