Without Sanchez, Arsenal loses 2-1 to Bournemouth

Without Sanchez, Arsenal loses 2-1 to Bournemouth

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

"We were 1-0 up and suddenly we lost two goals and we don't know where they came from", Wenger said.

But goals in the space of four minutes from Wilson and Jordon Ibe helped Bournemouth secure a 2-1 win, moving them four points above the Premier League relegation zone.

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.

"We looked a bit lacklustre in the final third, not sharp enough to create chances", Wenger told a news conference.

Bournemouth register first-ever win over sorry Arsenal
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. Arsenal are now without a single win in their last four matches, drawing three and losing one.

However, Callum Wilson equalized for the home side in the 70th minute, whipping in a delicious ball as he nudged a shot past a helpless Petr Cech.

Arsene Wenger says mistakes from his team were to blame for Arsenal's 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth. This latest setback leaves them mired in sixth place and staring at a second straight season out of the Champions League. Laurent Koscielny, Nacho Monreal and Olivier Giroud are still sidelined, while Aaron Ramsey and Sead Kolasinac were on the bench after returning from injuries.

Despite dictating much of the early possession Arsenal clearly missed their more illustrious attacking talents with Alexandre Lacazette cutting a lonely figure without the cutting edge of Sanchez and the injured Mesut Ozil. "I feel overall physically it was a tough game for us".

"That worked to a degree but we went 1-0 down and had to fight back again, so real credit to the players for finding that inner strength to do it because the game was pretty flat at that moment from our perspective". "The attitude of the players was strong".
