Arsenal player ratings: Cech and co absolutely shocking against Bournemouth

Share

Goals by Callum Wilson and Jordan Ibe earned Bournemouth their first ever win over Arsenal and a valuable three points after the Cherries fought back to win 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

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.

Alexis Sanchez was left out of the Arsenal squad for the game as the speculation about his future at The Emirates continues.

Wilshere was anxious to make a good impression on his return to the club where he spent last season on loan while Arsenal were keen to register their first victory since the turn of the year.

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.

There was a much clearer claim for a spot-kick moments later in the Arsenal area when Alex Iwobi handled Ibe's free-kick but referee Kevin Friend decided the contact was unintentional.

Iwobi played a lovely ball in behind to set the Spaniard free, before he raced into the penalty box and squirmed the ball through Begovic to find the net and grab his second goal in successive Premier League games.

Bournemouth restored parity on 70 minutes as Callum Wilson turned home Ryan Fraser's cross to draw the hosts level, 1-1. A ball over the top found substitute Lys Mousset who was then able to tee up Ibe as he fired under Cech and made it 2-1.

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