Bournemouth - Arsenal, Alexis and Iosil outside the group (s)
Arsenal failed to record a victory in the fifth consecutive match by losing a 1:2 visit to Bournemouth. Eddie Howie`s team turned the opponent within four minutes and came to the first victory over Londoners in their history. Ektor Bealerin opened the score at the beginning of the second part, Khalid Wilson equalized in the 70th minute, and shortly thereafter Jordan Aib made 2:1.
Success has climbed Bournemouth to 13th in the standings, while Arsenal is increasingly moving away from places to play in the Champions League. Arsene Wenger`s team is five points behind Tottenham and Liverpool and eight of Chelsea`s third.
The clouds over the head of the Arsenal manager are becoming more and more black. In addition to losing, Alexis Sanchez is expected to leave the club. The Chilean was not included in the match group today, and Wenger said the attacker`s future is still unclear.
After an equitable start, Arsenal first came to a dangerous blow to the door during his visit to Bournemouth. In the eighth minute, young defender Einsley Maitland-Nijls received the ball in the penalty area. He fired twice before making a very good blow to the far beam and the ball hit the beam. A little later Begovic had to intervene after Iuby`s shot. Jack Wilshire, who last season`s Born in Bournemouth, is at the heart of most of the attack. Arsene Wenger, who watches the match via football video live
from the stands because of punishment, is increasingly relying on him. Arsenal generally controls events on the pitch, and hosts` attempts to jeopardize Cech are rare.
`Gunners` reached their best opportunity in the 35th minute. Then Lukaset brought Welbeck alone against Begovic, but the goalkeeper came out excellent, managed to shorten the distance and reflect the blow. At the end of the half-time, Eddie Howie`s team made a real chance for a goal. Jordan Abe found the uncovered Dan Gosling in the penalty area, but Chambers managed to throw himself and block the strike.
The guests led at the beginning of the second part. Alex Iubique in a magnificent way brought Belerin behind the defense. The Spanish defender shoots, the ball hits Begovic, but continues to the door and finds himself in the net.

Bournemouth had not shown anything until the second half, but within four minutes turned the game.
Kalum Wilson equalized in the 70th minute. Then Ryan Frazier handed him over, and Chek`s unacknowledged exit allowed the attacker to overtake him and direct the ball to the net. A little later, Arsenal`s defense did not do well. Wilson was excellent, but he slowed down. He found Jordan Abe, who led the hosts ahead with his first Bournemouth goal in the Premier League. By the end of the meeting, `gunners` found no way to respond and were not close to leveling. (70)
