Arsenal vs. AFC Bournemouth - Football Match Report

Arsenal vs. AFC Bournemouth - Football Match Report

Lacazette was given one of the simplest chances he could wish for after six minutes when Mkhitaryan's half-volley found him unmarked six yards out and he directed the ball beyond Saints goalkeeper Angus Gunn with a smart flick.

"The club is working on how we can improve, how we can be better in the present and the future with the people working for us". They should have taken the lead inside five minutes when Nathan Redmond beat the offside trap and cut inside, but his shot was well-blocked by Bernd Leno.

The Gunners doubled their lead in the 17th minute when Mkhitaryan added the finishing touches to another Iwobi cross.

Late on, substitute Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang could have added a third but his cross-shot towards Lacazette was kept out by Gunn's trailing leg.

Arsenal now sit in fourth place, their old stomping grounds, but will expect a win against a middling Bournemouth side at home.




Emery's men head to the game following a 2-0 victory over Southampton in their last Premier League encounter.

After the game manager Unai Emery paid tribute to his squad's strength-in-depth after making six changes from the Europa League win over BATE Borisov on Thursday night.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan has been directly involved in each of Arsenal's four Premier League goals against Southampton this season (3 goals, 1 assist).

The Nigeria worldwide made his first team debut three-and-a-half years ago under Arsene Wenger but is still to cement a place as a regular starter with his occasionally erratic end product a source of frustration for some Arsenal fans.

These are concerning times for Saints fans, and a lot of them are growing increasingly frustrated both with results, and a player who started the match against Unai Emery's men.
