Bournemouth rallies to stun Arsenal in Premier League

Paul Merson Bournemouth Arsenal Premier League Sky Sports

Arsenal travelled to Bournemouth today to face a team that was hovering above the relegation zone and hadn't won for ten games, but then again Arsenal hadn't won any of their last five either and they had an bad away record.

Arsene Wenger admitted that Arsenal were "lacklustre" in attack in Sunday's 2-1 loss at Bournemouth, and lamented "very surprising mistakes" on the goals conceded.

After Hector Bellerin fired through Asmir Begovic to open the scoring for Arsenal in the 52nd minute, Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe scored within five second-half minutes to turn the game on its head.

Bournemouth had their second of the day soon afterwards when a long ball forward picked out Wilson in the Arsenal box.

If this is Arsenal without Alexis Sanchez and Mesut Ozil, their fans ought to be very anxious about the future indeed. "When you are 1-0 up normally you should create more to be risky and we paid for that".

How significant is Arsenal's defeat to Bournemouth?

'We got them on their feet and they got behind us for the second goal'. Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal and Olivier Giroud are still sidelined, while Aaron Ramsey and Sead Kolasinac were on the bench after returning from injuries.

Reflecting on how Bournemouth turned the game around, Howe said: "We are a fit team, the statistics show that, so energy wise I felt we were always going to get stronger as the game went on". "I don't think we didn't work hard, we have come out of the Chelsea game where we gave a lot, we worked hard. It's a massive lift, we need points against whoever are playing".

After falling behind, Arsenal looked bereft of ideas, with Mesut Ozil also missing - another player who could soon be departing the Emirates Stadium with his contract expiring at the end of the season.
