Bournemouth come from behind to beat lacklustre Arsenal

Arsenal produced a late fightback to draw 3-3 with Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium last January

Bournemouth came from behind to register a 2-1 win over Arsenal, who were without Alexis Sanchez, at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

However, Callum Wilson equalized for the home side in the 70th minute, whipping in a delicious ball as he nudged a shot past a helpless Petr Cech.

Danny Welbeck, Shkodran Mustafi and Maitland Niles all came close to breaking the deadlock in the first half but Bournemouth remained compact at the back.

Mesut Ozil was also missing for the Gunners after being ruled out with a swollen knee but Jack Wilshere started despite having limped out of the midweek League Cup draw at Chelsea with an ankle injury.

"The fans were flat so we needed to get them back in the game and a goal against a big team got them on their feet and then we added a second".

Bomb blast wounds member of Hamas in Lebanon
The Hezbollah-linked Al-Mayadeen news reported that an Israeli plane was flying over the city at the time of the explosion. A senior Hamas official was the target of a auto bombing in Lebanon on Sunday, which left him severally wounded.

The victory moved AFC Bournemouth from 17th to 13th in the Premier League, four points above the drop zone.

Bournemouth were perhaps quite unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty before the break as Iwobi looked to have moved his arm towards the ball from a corner.

The 25-year-old was key to Bournemouth's comeback, though, scoring the first after a magnificent cross from Fraser and then providing the assist for Ibe's victor.

But after Arsenal's opener Bournemouth mounted pressure and nearly restored parity through Ibe who fired a tame shot which was saved by Petr Cech. It seems inevitable that Sanchez will depart this month, leaving the team without its game-changer and top scorer from last season.

Arsenal are now winless in five games in all competitions and five points adrift of fourth place in the Premier League table, prompting a disgruntled reaction from Wenger.
