Arsenal score in 70th, 75th and 92nd minutes to come back from THREE goals down to earn a point against Bournemouth

Arsene Wenger's side score in 70th, 75th and 92nd minutes to come back from THREE goals down to earn a point

  • A win would have left Arsenal six points off Chelsea at the top of the table 
  • Charlie Daniels scored the opener for Bournemouth in the 16th minute 
  • Bournemouth then won a penalty after a foul by Granit Xhaka on Ryan Fraser
  • Callum Wilson took it and put Bournemouth 2-0 up after only 20 minutes 
  • Bournemouth got a third goal when Fraser scored in the 58th minute 
  • Alexis Sanchez then gave Arsenal a lifeline with a 70th minute header 
  • Lucas Perez then pulled another back for Arsenal in the 75th minute 
  • Bournemouth captain Simon Francis was shown a straight red in the 82nd
  • Olivier Giroud made it 3-3 in stoppage time to earn Arsenal a point 

Perhaps it was the stinging chorus from their fans which finally stirred Arsenal.
'This is embarrassing,' they sang, those who had travelled down from London as their side trailed by three goals with 20 minutes to go.
It seemed like another classic soft-under belly collapse from Arsene Wenger's team.

No sooner had they sewn-up the Goal of the Season with an intricate counter-attack complete with an outrageous scorpion move against Crystal Palace on Sunday, than they switched-off beside the seaside.
No sooner had they issued this reminder of their enduring quality, than they take their eye off the real prize, the Premier League.
They were two down inside an awful first 20 minutes, and an injury to Francis Coquelin adding to concerns in the first-half.
Even when they improved after the break they were hit on the break with a third by Ryan Fraser, who outpaced speed-merchant Hector Bellerin and nut-megged Petr Cech.
Here surely was more fuel for the argument that they lack a cold-eyed killer instinct and are driven by desire to play pretty football rather than grind out points.
But Alexis Sanchez and Lucas Perez pulled back goals to give them hope and they bombarded 10-man Bournemouth in the closing stages after Simon Francis had been sent off for a late tackle on Aaron Ramsey.
The equaliser came in stoppage time when Olivier Giroud out-jumped Steve Cook to glance in a header from a cross by Granit Xhaka.

THE KEY MOMENTS

16 MINS: Daniels opens the scoring
20 MINS: Wilson scores a penalty
58 MINS: Fraser makes it 3-0
70 MINS: Sanchez scores for Arsenal
75 MINS: Perez scores a superb volley
82 MINS: Francis is shown a red card
92 MINS: Giroud makes it 3-3
Not a scorpion kick but vital, although amid the jubilation of this late recovery, Arsenal have dropped two points.
For Bournemouth, a famous night was tarnished, although they will find context in the fact this collapse against one of the best teams in Europe happened to be eight years to the day after Eddie Howe took control of his first game as manager.
He lost to Darlington on that occasion and his team were 91st in the Football League.
Howe can be applauded for setting up boldly to take on Arsenal with two quick wingers and two even quicker strikers, just as he did with some success at the Emirates Stadium in November.
Bournemouth had performed well that day despite the 3-1 defeat, and were encouraged by further signs during the opening phase of Tuesday night's encounter with Josh King firing wide and Junior Stanislas fizzing a 25-yarder into the body of Cech.
With Benik Afobe unavailable because of a mix-up with his on-off registration for DR Congo, King and Callum Wilson were paired up front and their pace and movement caused problems for Laurent Koscielny and Shkodran Mustafi, back after injury.

Cech dashed smartly from his line to beat Wilson to a pass from Stanislas. Michael Oliver ignored the appeals for a penalty and replays proved he was right. The 'keeper touched the ball away with his hands before toppling the striker.
Bournemouth, however, would not be deterred and were soon ahead when a run by Ryan Fraser dragged Bellerin out of position and Stanislas found left-back Charlie Daniels with a long diagonal pass.
Aaron Ramsey failed to track back and cover Bellerin and as the young full-back tried to scramble across to recover he was side-stepped by Daniels who then applied a cool and confident finish, a throwback to his days as a winger at Tottenham.
The second came from a penalty, clumsily and unnecessarily conceded by Xhaka, who is developing a habit of clumsy and unnecessary challenges.
Oliver played a good advantage in Bournemouth's favour as they launched a counter-attack and Xhaka charged Fraser as he burst into the corner of the penalty box, with no immediate threat on goal.
This time the referee did point to the spot and again the slow motion replays supported his decision.

Wilson tucked the spot-kick away, his sixth goal of the season and Arsenal were two down inside 20 minutes.
Not only that, the Londoners had created virtually nothing and signs of stress were in evidence as Alexis Sanchez sliced a shot wide and swore angrily at Ramsey who questioned his decision to go for goal.
Wenger looked on with furrowed brow and it was about to get worse.
Coquelin was hurt and limped down the tunnel with what appeared to pull a hamstring, an injury which could not be timed much worse with Mohamed Elneny having just departed for international duty with Egypt at the Africa Cup of Nations.
Santi Cazorla is out with a long term injury.
Arsenal stabilised before the interval. They enjoyed more possession and forced Bournemouth back but Howe's team remained the most likely to score, and continued to cause problems with their pace and willingness to run behind the full-backs.

Both Bellerin and Nacho Monreal had trouble containing their wingers with little protection from their wide midfielders Ramsey and Sanchez.
Cech did his best to exude a little authority, claiming a couple of dangerous crosses but his goal was peppered with further efforts from Harry Arter and Stanislas, who was bright and inventive and has made notable progress this season.
Arsenal reappeared with a greater sense of urgency and the post-Coquelin reshuffle gave the team a more pleasing attacking balance with Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain wide on the right and Ramsey deep providing thrust from deep in midfield.
Oxlade-Chamberlain delivered testing crosses from the right and Steve Cook produced a terrific tackle to dispossess Ramsey as he looked set to complete a mazy wriggle through a crowded penalty box.
As they took more risks, Bournemouth threatened at the other end.
Arter's shot cannoned in off Wilson but the goal was ruled out for handball against the striker.
Lucas Perez pulled another back for Arsenal in the 75th minute with this volley to make the scoreline 3-2

Then Fraser tore past Bellerin to reach a pass from Daniels and squeeze a shot through Cech's legs.
Cech saved a free-kick from Stanislas before Sanchez scored the goal to trigger a late flurry.
Perez volleyed the second with 15 minutes remaining, his first goal in the Premier League.
More drama followed in a tense closing phase. Dan Gosling curled a chance wide and Bournemouth captain Simon Francis was sent off for a late tackle on Ramsey.
Six minutes were added on and Giroud nodded in the equaliser. Not a scorpion kick but vital all the same. A different kind of sting in the tail.
