#BOUARS: Jordon Ibe’s second half Effort was enough for Bournemouth to defeat Arsenal for the first time on Sunday afternoon at the Vitality Stadium.
Bournemouth came from behind to record their first ever win over Arsenal this afternoon as the Gunners suffered a damaging 2-1 defeat at the Vitality Stadium.
Hector Bellerin fired the visitors into a 52nd-minute lead, but goals from Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe in the space of five minutes earned the Cherries an historic triumph.
Arsene Wenger watched from the stands as his side lost crucial ground in the race for Champions League qualification.
Bournemouth employed a 5-4-1 formation and their wing-backs got forward well early on, with Adam Smith cutting inside and shooting narrowly wide on four minutes.
His opposite number Ainsley Maitland-Niles came even closer for Arsenal five minutes later when he rattled the crossbar after skilfully creating space for a shot inside the box.
Arsenal did not have the inspiration to respond themselves and meekly slipped to a fourth game without victory in all compeititions, which could leave them eight points adrift of the top four if Liverpool beat Manchester City on Sunday.
Bournemouth’s victory lifts them four places up to 13th in the table, four points clear of the relegation zone.
