Arsenal edge past Cherries

Arsenal saw off a hard-running AFC Bournemouth with a 2-1 victory in the English Premier League on Sunday.

The Cherries seek to build on their ability to run down the opposition with the visit of the ever-improving Gunners.

A brilliant ball by Josh King to David Brooks allowed the latter to smash beautifully past Bernd Leno, but it was sadly disallowed for offside after seven minutes.

Inside a minute, Arsenal responded but were denied by the post following Lucas Torreira’s stunning effort, with Alex Iwobi unable to bury the follow-up.

On the midway mark, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang failed to make the most of a loose ball bobbling around the box following a corner, as he couldn’t direct his effort on target.

On 29 minutes, Serge Kolasinac’s pacey ball into the box led to a cracking own-goal from Jefferson Lema to give the visitors the lead.

Bournemouth didn’t retreat immediately, but grew their hair stronger and it certainly paid dividends later on in the context.

A well-worked counterattack found Brooks to play it for King who curled beautifully into the far corner to level matters with the last kick of the half.

The home side took another aim at the more fancied Londoners, with King beating his man on the right to find Brooks to crack up a low effort from the edge of the area.
