Eddie Howe: Bournemouth found inner strength to beat Arsenal

Alexis Sanchez, heavily linked with an exit from the Emirates, was left out of Arsenal's squad with manager Arsene Wenger saying before the game that a decision on his future was "imminent".

"Everywhere, all round the pitch and it's the same failings, that lack of desire to get themselves back in the game".

Danny Welbeck, Shkodran Mustafi and Maitland Niles all came close to breaking the deadlock in the first half but Bournemouth remained compact at the back. Fraser, who was Bournemouth's best player in the second half, did well to work some space on the right flank and sent in a delicious cross towards the far post where Callum Wilson burst a gut to get into the box and apply the finish. Referee Kevin Friend had a brilliant view but turned down strong appeals from those in red and black.

"I think if you look again at the second goal we made many mistakes and that is what we paid for".

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.

But the visitors proved unable to apply significant pressure in the closing stages, Bournemouth remaining resolute to record a victory that could prove crucial to their survival hopes. 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.

Hector Bellerin opened the scoring in the 52nd for Arsenal, which is in sixth place and has dropped eight points off the Champions League qualification positions as a result of Liverpool's win over Manchester City later Sunday. It seems inevitable that Sanchez will depart this month, leaving the team without its game-changer and top scorer from last season.
