Arsenal team against Bournemouth was their WORST EVER - Jamie Redknapp

Arsenal's Granit Xhaka and Jack Wilshere look dejected after Bournemouth's Jordon Ibe scores their second goal

The Cherries' problems appeared to be continuing when Hector Bellerin fired Arsenal, without the influential Alexis Sanchez, into a 52nd-minute lead.

Bournemouth came from a goal down to beat Arsenal 2-1 in their Premier League clash at the Vitality Stadium.

Jordon Ibe celebrates with team mates after scoring to put Bournemouth into the lead.

The result means Arsenal have now won just two of their last nine league games and have suffered back-to-back defeats following last weekend's shock defeat at Nottingham Forest. "When you are 1-0 up normally you should create more to be unsafe and we paid for that".

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.

Arsenal's attack sputtered at Bournemouth on Sunday.

Arsenal travelled to Bournemouth today to face a team that was hovering above the relegation zone and hadn't won for ten games, but then again Arsenal hadn't won any of their last five either and they had an very bad away record.

"The two goals were of high quality so I am really pleased that gave us the boost towards the end of the game".

It was a selection that displayed the alarming lack of quality available to Arsene Wenger - who was also missing Mesut Ozil through injury - meaning the Gunners' boss was forced to field an XI which from the outset looked as though it would struggle for goals - and indeed that was the case.

"They were focused and the attitude is one thing, but at that level it is a combination of quality and attitude, and today I question more the quality of what we have created, than the attitude of the players". With Liverpool smashing the "invincible" Man City side, we are now a massive 8 points behind the 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed teams, and with Tottenham's 4-0 win yesterday the Spuds are now 5 points clear of us in 5th.
