Southampton 0-2 Arsenal

Alexis marked his 100th Premier League appearance with a fantastic goal, and Olivier Giroud added a late second, as we kept up the pressure in the race for the top four.

After a tight first-half light on clear cut chances, the Gunners' patience paid off after the break.

Mesut Ozil fed Alexis in the box, and the forward twisted away from two Southampton defenders, shifting the ball onto his left foot and tucking it past Fraser Forster.

It was the Chilean's 20th league goal of the season - he is only the fifth Arsenal player to manage the feat in the Premier League era.

Any nerves were settled in the final 10 minutes when Giroud nodded in from close range after being set up by Aaron Ramsey.

The win moved us up to fifth in the league, and still in the hunt for a 20th consecutive Champions League qualification.
