Arsenal bounce back from successive defeats with Bournemouth victory

"[He] is very focused on the Premier League and the Europa League and he wants to do well".

Sanchez started in the 4-0 defeat against Liverpool before the global break and came close to leaving to join Manchester City on deadline day.

His did find the net after 27 minutes to make it 2-0 following Welbeck's sixth minute opener.

Of course, Arsenal fans will hope that Welbeck can start to do this more consistently, and against better opposition, but it's a start for a player who has so often been in and out of the side due to injury problems. Despite the Hitchin player's insistence he is fit and raring to go - most on social media - the long-serving Frenchman declined to include him in the squad.

"He's a guy with huge physical potential and even though people are not completely convinced he is a great finisher, these kinds of goals will help him get more relaxed in front of goal". We were disappointing from start to finish. "I don't know how bad it is but he's certainly out for next week's game", claimed Wenger. "Not only did we not score, but we conceded moments later, which ended the game".

The England global also laid on Alexandre Lacazette's strike as the Gunners got their Premier League campaign back on track. His first goal had a touch of fortune as he did not get much on it but he took his second with aplomb to top a superb performance which also included an assist for Lacazette's strike.

Alexis Sanchez came off the bench in the closing stages for his first Arsenal appearance this season following the collapse of his mooted move to Manchester City on transfer deadline day.

Bournemouth must show all their character to arrest a "concerning" run of form, manager Eddie Howe said after his side were beaten 3-0 at Arsenal for their fourth successive Premier League defeat of the season.
