Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud scored to lead Arsenal to a 2-0 victory over Southampton in the English Premier League (EPL) that puts the Gunners within three points of fourth-place Manchester City and within sniffing distance of Liverpool.

Southampton will hope that they are not left to rue missed opportunities as the Saints will take a narrow 1-0 lead back with them to Anfield in their League Cup semi-final second leg. Southampton won the first leg at the St. Mary's Stadium thanks to Nathan Redmond's 20th minute goal, but really should be out of sight in this tie after having had chances galore to put the tie to bed against a Liverpool side that just didn't turn up.
