Arsenal welcomed Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium earlier today as they hoped to earn a positive result at home in the Premier League. The Gunners made a horror start to the game as they conceded the opening goal in the first minute when Philip Billing scored for the visitors. Mikel Arteta’s men struggled to come up with a response in the first half and went into the half-time break 1-0 down on the scoreline.

Marcos Senesi doubled Bournemouth’s advantage in the 57th minute. However, the home team got a goal back via Thomas Partey’s effort just five minutes later. Ben White equalised for Arsenal in the 70th minute before Reiss Nelson ended up netting a dramatic injury-time winner to seal all three points for his team. The contest ended with the North London giants earning a brilliant 3-2 win which consolidated their place at the top of the Premier League table.

Let’s take a look at how each Arsenal player fared during the match against the Cherries.

GK: Aaron Ramsdale – 6/10

Ramsdale made a couple of solid saves at the back but will be disappointed after conceding a goal in both halves.

RB: Takehiro Tomiyasu – 6/10

He was a dominant presence in the air but looked shaky at the back. Tomiyasu was replaced at half-time.

CB: William Saliba – 6.5/10

CB: Gabriel – 6.5/10
