Arsenal beaten at Bournemouth without Sanchez

Arsenal have never lost to Bournemouth in their six meetings but know they'll have a challenge on their hands here, just like they experienced on the South Coast a year ago where they fought from 3-0 down to draw 3-3; the only time they've battled back from that deficit in a Premier League match.

Although the Gunners defence was again found wanting, when Callum Wilsons steered home a left-footed effort after great work from Ryan Fraser who provided the assist on the 70th minute to equalise for Bournemouth 1-1.

Hector Bellerin scored Arsenal's opener in the 52nd minute after he was played through on goal by Iwobi.

Putting on his umpire's hat, Payne said he believed the decision should have been not out. Alex Ross was dismissed was the personal score of 27 runs off 19 balls.

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

"The fans were flat so we needed to get them back in the game and a goal against a big team got them on their feet and then we added a second". 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.

First Petr Cech was unable to cut out Fraser's teasing cross with Wilson converting before Ibe smashed home after Wilson did brilliantly to tee him up. Knocked out in the FA Cup third round, out of the top four in the league, and their best player in Sanchez leaving - Wenger has a massive job on his hand if he is to somehow rescue something from this season.

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