Wenger Slams Arsenal Quality Vs Bournemouth, Gives Up On Sanchez

BC-SOC-Bournemouth-Arsenal, 2nd Ld-Writethru, 323 Without Sanchez, Arsenal loses 2-1 to Bournemouth in EPLAP Photo LON819, WRC811, LON817Eds: Updates 3rd paragraph with Arsenal being eight points off the top four after Liverpool's win over Man City.

"Alexis would have played, but it's a hard period for him".

Wenger confirmed he has received assurances from Arsenal's board that Sanchez will be replaced if he leaves, with Manchester United appearing ready to pip Manchester City to the 29-year-old's signature.

Callum Wilson equalized in the 70th minute for Bournemouth before setting up Jordon Ibe for the victor in the 74th minute, intensifying Arsenal's problems in what could be developing into another crisis under Arsene Wenger.

And while Wenger wrestles with problems on the field, the off-the-pitch saga involving Sanchez is adding to his concerns, with the manager admitting that continuing uncertainty surrounding the striker's future, was the reason he was omitted.

First, Wilson converted Ryan Fraser's teasing cross to restore parity in the 70th minute before Ibe fired home a second having been teed up by the scorer of Bournemouth's first.

Bournemouth, meanwhile, climbs to 13th but remain just four points above the bottom three.

"The team that fights against relegation will fight and you can not afford any concentration mistake". 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. "That is why I made a decision to focus on the game". Now their prize asset's Gunners career may well end on 60 goals and 25 assists in 122 Premier League appearances.

"I feel overall physically it was a tough game for us", said Wenger.

"They were focused and the attitude is one thing, but at that level it is a combination of quality and attitude, and today I question more the quality of what we have created, than the attitude of the players". It's very frustrating and very disappointing, a very disappointing result for us, especially when you're 1-0 up.

"We will enjoy tonight, that was a famous win for the club".
