Arsenal beaten at Bournemouth without Sanchez

Arsenal beaten at Bournemouth without Sanchez

Arsene Wenger dropped wantaway Alexis Sanchez and he was missed in the encounter as the away side lacked a cutting edge all through the game.

In search of a late equaliser, Arsenal brought on Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey but they were unable to rescue another desperately disappointing afternoon.

Hector Bellarin gave the Gunners the lead early in the second half, but Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe responded to condemn the Gunners to defeat on the south coast.

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.

The break came at the wrong time for the hosts who found themselves behind soon after when Bellerin - set free by a superb Iwobi ball - fired through Begovic's hand. Referee Kevin Friend had a brilliant view but turned down strong appeals from those in red and black.

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. The Gunners had warnings prior to the goal, with Ibe and Fraser forcing stops from Petr Cech, but the Arsenal 'keeper then did poor as Eddie Howe's side made it 1-1.

Callum Wilson restored parity for Bournemouth in the 70th minute, stabbing home a cross from the right flank before Ibe bagged the victor.

"He doesn't, he goes to sleep, it falls to Ibe and it's 2-1".

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

Having won just one of their last five Premier League matches, Arsenal remain sixth with 39 points - five behind rivals Tottenham Hotspur in fifth.
