Arsenal shocked by struggling Bournemouth

Arsenal shocked by struggling Bournemouth

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.

"Everywhere, all round the pitch and it's the same failings, that lack of desire to get themselves back in the game".

Aside from that the visitors were restricted by a compact Bournemouth defence but Shkodran Mustafi did have two opportunities from first half corners, heading wide on both occasions. A goal against a big team is always going to lift them and that is what it did.

Bournemouth restored parity on 70 minutes as Callum Wilson turned home Ryan Fraser's cross to draw the hosts level, 1-1.

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.

It didn't take long for Arsenal to finally find the net in the second half and the breakthrough came from Bellerin on 52 minutes.

Ibe's goal was his first in the Premier League for Bournemouth.

With 20 minutes remaining Bournemouth found a deserved equaliser.

"It's very frustrating and very disappointing result for us, especially when you are 1-0 up and we made mistakes in areas where you wonder where they come from".

The Cherries nearly made the breakthrough in the 40th minute through Ryan Fraser after some great work by Jordon Ibe saw the ball fall to the Scot, but Calum Chambers came flying in to make the block. We worked hard today, but we made mistakes and I wouldn't say the team hasn't worked or not played with a good spirit.

Two goals in four minutes from Callum Wilson and then Jordon Ibe handed the Cherries all three points and their first ever victory over Arsenal, leaving Wenger's team in sixth place, five points outside the top four.
