Arsenal defeated Bournemouth 3-0 at the Emirates stadium on Saturday afternoon, putting behind them the 4-0 battering they’d had off Liverpool before the international break.
Danny Welbeck was on point as he grabbed two goals on the day for the Gunners, while Alexandre Lacazette also bagged himself a goal.
The Gunners went into the game off of a bad defeat to Liverpool and a less than impressive transfer window, with many Arsenal fans up in arms about the defensive frailties still not being dealt with. There was one positive though for Arsenal fans and that was to see Alexis Sanchez once again run out in the red and white of the Gunners.
Bournemouth haven’t really got going this season, that despite the fact they have a deadly striker in Jermaine Defoe up front. They were poor in this game and Eddie Howe’s side need to get going quickly if they are to acquire enough points to stay in the division.
Welbeck put the home side one goal to the good on the sixth minute mark, before Lacazette doubled the London club’s lead before the break. Welbeck scored Arsenal’s third and his second of the game on the 50th minute mark with a nice finish.
As said the Cherries looked poor on the day, and lost winger Ryan Fraser to injury before the interval. The closest the south coast club came to a goal was Defoe’s header which hit the post, which sort of said how their whole afternoon went.
The only bad part of the afternoon for Arsenal was the injury to substitute Francis Coquelin who was making his 100th appearance for the club.
Bournemouth are yet to pick a point up in the Premier League and their next match is at home to Brighton. Meanwhile Arsenal are hosting Colonge on Thursday evening in the Europa League.
