5-1 win for the Gunners as they extend impressive home form.
Arsenal will take on AFC Bournemouth in the Premier League this Wednesday. After Lys Mousset made it 2-1 in the first half, Laurent Koscielny scored early in the second half to make it 3-1 and late goals from Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette put some extra gloss on the scoreline.

Southampton continued to cause Arsenal problems in the early exchanges, and nearly equalised through Matt Targett who tested Leno with a fierce drive, but the German goalkeeper was equal to the effort as he parried the shot away.
