Arsenal shared a similar fate as Bournemouth as they kicked- off at the Emirates stadium this afternoon.
Both of them were coming back from the international break with back to back defeats. Bournemouth were yet to register a point in this campaign and on the other hand the incessant chants of Wenger’s departure and a clash against Chelsea next week also demanded an imperative performance.

Arsenal came into the match with three changes to the side that started the match against Liverpool. Sead Kolasnić, Shkodran Mustafi and Alexandre Lacazette came in to replace Rob Holding , Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Alexis Sanchez respectively while Bournemouth just made one alteration with Andrew Surman making way for Ryan Fraser .

This already reiterated the headlines for tomorrow as Alexis Sanchez started on the bench after the transfer saga with city. Arsenal responded the critics with a tremendous start by taking an early lead through the courtesy of Danny Welbeck in the sixth minute when he met the neat cross by Sead Kolasnić with a close range header.

Arsenal were patiently moving the ball around and oozing withconfidence and were rewarded with another goal in the 27th minute as Nathan Ake darts to cut out a lofted pass and completely misses and allows it to bounce to Welbeck ,he quickly moves into a pass to Lacazette who curles in a beautiful strike into the top right-hand corner.Ryan Fraser was seemed to be struggling with an injury and was substituted in the 28th minute by Jordan Ibe.

Arsenal looked strong with a healthy 2-0 lead entering into the half-time and we’re looking certain to register their second win of the season and a goal in the 50th minute sealed the match when Danny welbeck successfully netted his second latching in to the header by Aaron Ramsey and beating Begović with a lovely low shot.

Both the goal scorers Lacazzete and Welbeck made thr way for Olivier Giroud and Alexis Sanchez,which was well responded by the fans and the Chilean provided a respectable performance in the last 15 minutes .Danny Welbeck was named the man of the match for scoring two goals and a crucial assist.

Arsenal will be relieved to move into the top-half of the table reducing the goal difference by 3 goals and are seeming to look like a competitive side against Chelsea the next week.
