  3. 'A game we had to win'

    Bournemouth 2-1 Arsenal

    Arsenal

    Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger, speaking to BBC Sport: "We were 1-0 up and suddenly we lost two goals and we don't know where they came from. It is very frustrating. Overall we have to look at it in a very objective and harsh way we made mistakes we should not have made.

    "The team that fights against relegation will fight and you cannot afford any concentration mistake.

    Did the change to four at the back affect Arsenal? "Maybe a little bit but 1-1 was not good enough for us. We had to win the game. I think if you look again at the second goal we made many mistakes and that is what we paid for."

    On Alexis Sanchez: "Half in half out, you never know this kind of situation during the transfer period. Anything can happen at any moment. That is why I decided to focus on the game."

  5. Waiting for Wenger

    Bournemouth 2-1 Arsenal

    We're still waiting to hear from Arsene Wenger.

    Not even had the hint of him popping out to speak to the media so instead I'm watching the groundspeople tend to the pitch while some trance music plays in the background.

  7. 'A famous win'

    Bournemouth 2-1 Arsenal

    Bournemouth

    Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe, speaking to BBC Sport: "A huge win for us. Every win in the Premier League is important. It was a tight game, not a lot in it but we showed the spirit and desire to come back from a losing position.

    "I am delighted with the attitude of the players today. Our fitness levels were very good today, statistically we are one of the fitter teams in the division.

    "In this division if you can get two or three wins your whole outlook can change, then if you get two or three defeats it all changes, we have just tried to be very stable.

    "We will enjoy tonight, that was a famous win for the club."

  9. 'Tough situation for Wenger'

    Bournemouth 2-1 Arsenal

    Steve Claridge

    Ex-Premier League striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    Arsenal could come out of this week eight points off the Champions League places, it's been an awful week for them. They haven't improved on last season whatsoever, in fact they seem to be regressing, it's a really tough situation for Arsene Wenger.

    Stuart Smith: Arsenal are still looking for those 40 points for safety.

    Parth Metha: Somebody from the crowd just raised a banner saying 'Wenger Out' at the India vs South Africa cricket match.

  11. 'A massive lift'

    Bournemouth 2-1 Arsenal

    Bournemouth's Callum Wilson, speaking to Sky Sports: "It is fantastic. I didn't realise that [first Premier League win against Arsenal]. We needed to pick up our home form and we did that today.

    "It is a massive lift. We need points against whoever we play at the minute."

    Jordon Ibe, who scored his first goal for Bournemouth: "It was a special moment. I have been working for this for a while but credit to the boys for setting me up. I am happy with the win."

  12. Post update

    Bournemouth 2-1 Arsenal

    A first-ever Premier League win over Arsenal for Bournemouth and a first win against a top six side this season.

    That could be the sort of result that turns around Bournemouth's season.

  14. Bournemouth deserve the win

    Bournemouth 2-1 Arsenal

    Steve Claridge

    Ex-Premier League striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    Bournemouth have stuck at it, they've stayed in the game even when they were under the cosh, and they've had two moments of quality to open up the Arsenal defence. Since then, it's been all about dogged defending, they really deserve this.

  15. FULL-TIME

    Bournemouth 2-1 Arsenal

    All over!

    A massive win for Bournemouth as they leap up to 13th.

    A very bad day at the office for Arsenal.

    Ian Shepherd: Xhaka was a solid defensive midfielder at his previous club. I think he's been told not to tackle for Arsenal. I thought we were getting another Petit when he signed. But he doesn't work nearly hard enough.

    Darren Jones: Any other club in the top-flight would be sacking their manager after such poor results but Wenger seems immune to it. What must he do for the board to get wise?

    Chris Lord: I miss Szczesny.

    I think that sums it all up Chris...

    One last chance for Arsenal? Jack Wilshere picks out Danny Welbeck on the left, the ball is prodded across the edge of the area... and the offside flag is raised.

    Hafiz: For how long has Cech been awaiting his 200th Premier League clean sheet? Is he ever gonna get it at Arsenal? The team is a joke.

    Here's the number Arsenal fans have been waiting for - four minutes of time added on.

  20. Arsenal have spurned some massive chances

    Bournemouth 2-1 Arsenal

    Steve Claridge

    Ex-Premier League striker on BBC Radio 5 live

    It will be a massive win if Bournemouth can get there, because Arsenal had a few massive chances earlier in the game. But they spurned them, sat back, allowed Bournemouth to come onto them, and now they're trailing. It's something only Arsenal can do.
