Nathan Redmond flew down the right side of the pitch to trouble Bernd Leno with a sixth minute effort.

Arsenal went ahead within a minute of that, with Lacazette redirecting a Henrikh Mkhitaryan shot into the goal.

Saints had a left-footed shot from Matt Targett blocked by Leno before play was stalled to treat a Sead Kolasinac head injury.

Arsenal doubled its advantage through Mkhitaryan, who took the honors himself this time with a low drive inside the near post following a cross through the 18.

James Ward-Prowse had an early second half effort rocket wide of the frame for Saints.
