GALLERY: Alexis saves the day as Gunners leave it late against Saints

Arsenal fought well last night to secure a 1-0 win against Southampton.

Arsenal aren’t playing their best brand of football at the moment, but it’s a return to the good old days of the side picking up 1-0 wins, accumulating points and improving their position in the Premier League table.

They have Alexis Sanchez to thank for a late goal last night in the game against Southampton, which has allowed them to close the gap on the top four.

The Chilean has been in great form for the club so far this season and Arsene Wenger will now be hoping that the rest of the side can also cash in as the games come thick and fast in the league and Champions League through December.

Arsenal have started to build a decent run of form heading into the January transfer market, which will also help to put them in a better position in terms of the players they decide to try and sign halfway through the season.

Here are some of the best images from the game last night.
