Southampton has ended Arsenal’s 22-game unbeaten run in all competitions with a 3-2 loss in the Premier League on Sunday, with Charlie Austin’s 85th-minute goal sealing the first win for new Saints manager Ralph Hasenhuettl.

Arsenal twice came from behind through goals from Henrikh Mkhitaryan and looked like preserving an undefeated streak in the league stretching back to August 18th – a stretch of 14 games.

Shane Long got free down the right and sent in a cross that went over the Gunners goalkeeper Bernd Leno and was headed in at the far post by Austin.

It was a winning goal that lifted Southampton out of the relegation zone with 17 of 38 games gone.

Danny Ings had earlier put Southampton ahead on two occasions with headers, taking advantage of poor positional play from Arsenal defender Laurent Koscielny, who was making his first league start since April after a serious knee injury.

Hasenhuettl took over from the fired Mark Hughes and lost his first game in charge, at Cardiff last weekend.

He celebrated the win by running onto the field and leaping into the air in delight.
