Arsenal's Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang says Arsene Wenger criticism not always fair

Charlie Austin scores for Southampton against Arsenal

Wenger said after the Stoke game that he could use both strikers together, although that would probably mean Aubameyang moving out to the wing.

"We're disappointed we didn't get something out of the game but for me in terms of the performance I'm more than happy with that". Every day in every single walk of life, you can do something good and people will have something bad to say about you.

"You just have to know there is going to be another opportunity and you have to keep focused".

He singled out Welbeck's contribution in the game at Emirates Stadium after the 27-year-old scored for the first time in the league since September, then got the victor after shooting high over the bar from close range four minutes earlier.

"I think a first-team start in the Premier League at a high level like this is always a step forward".

I've been through much tougher stuff than that. The striker's header was his second goal of the afternoon and proof, perhaps, that he is getting back to his best after an injury-ravaged season.

"He (Wenger) is one of the biggest (influences) for me", Nelson added.

And, well, they're at it again. "I've just got to thank the boss and all my team-mates around me, pushing me and making me work harder and harder".

"They were in League One not so long ago and when you think back to the quality of the players they had, it is quite impressive - they had Adam Lallana, Jay Rodriguez, Victor Wanyama, Van Dijk, Gareth Bale, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Theo Walcott..."

Welbeck's clever touch presented Aubameyang with the chance to prod the ball beyond the advancing Alex McCarthy for his sixth league goal of the campaign and, after setting up the equaliser, the former fired his side ahead with a right-footed drive that clipped defender Maya Yoshida's leg.

But if they keep alive the battling spirit they displayed against Arsenal, they might still make it to safety.

The question is whether Hughes has enough time left to implement his ideas.

The 18-year-old forward Reiss Nelson made his first Premier League start for Arsenal and was given a rude welcome from Southampton midfielder Dusan Tadic, who was fortunate to escape a booking for his risky tackle in the opening minutes.

Arsenal have won six matches in a row in all competitions for the first time since May 2017 (also six).

In Sunday's other league game, Javier (Chicharito) Hernandez scored minutes after coming on as a substitute to earn West Ham a 1-1 draw at Chelsea in their London derby.

Arsene Wenger is surprised by Southampton's Premier League plight this season and believes Virgil van Dijk's departure to Liverpool could have been key.

Goalscorer Charlie Austin echoed his manager's frustration.
