Bournemouth register first-ever win over sorry Arsenal

Olivier Giroud

The big news for Arsenal is the absence of Alexis Sanchez, who Arsene Wenger confirmed isn't in the squad today due to the ongoing transfer speculation.

Jan 14 (Reuters) - Arsenal lost further ground on the Premier League's top four after struggling Bournemouth came from behind to beat them 2-1 on Sunday.

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

Hector Bellerin gave Arsenal the lead in the second half, before a four minute double from the Cherries gave them the win.

The Gunners on the other hand were left effectively condemned in the sixth position, five points behind fifth placed Tottenham Hotspurs who secured a 4-0 emphatic win over Everton on Saturday.


The forward came on as a substitute for Arsenal in the Carabao Cup goalless draw at Chelsea in midweek, but the 29-year-old is apparently desperate for a move away from the Emirates before this window closes.

Mesut Ozil was also missing because of injury and Arsenal's lineup looked a shadow of the past teams under Wenger.

The home side mustered the first attempt when Adam Smith fired wide early on, but after eight minutes Arsenal were within a whisker of breaking through.

Bournemouth grew into the contest before the break and were aggrieved not to receive a penalty when Alex Iwobi appeared to handle Ibe's cross just moments before a desperate Calum Chambers block kept out Dan Gosling's goalbound effort. Iwobi slotted an excellent pass inside left-back Charlie Daniels, allowing Bellerin to advance on Begovic before beating the keeper with a powerful angled shot.

It was Ibe's first league goal for Bournemouth.
