Nigeria forward Alex Iwobi made his 13th English Premier League appearance for Arsenal this season as they lost 2-1 to AFC Bournemouth on Sunday, Completesportsnigeria.com (CSN) reports.

After an intense first half in which both sides gave nothing away it was the visitors who looked the more threatening.

Alexis Sanchez's omission from the matchday squad had sparked rumours of an impending move to Manchester United and Arsene Wenger admitted as much in his pre-match press conference as the Chilean winger inched toward the end of a six-month-long saga.

It's also how they looked in Monday's blowout loss in Minnesota, and in last week's blowout loss in Boston. Jordan, for example, is due $22.6 million this season and has a player option for 2018-19.

In search of a late equaliser, Arsenal brought on Theo Walcott and Aaron Ramsey but they were unable to rescue another desperately disappointing afternoon.

After Hector Bellerin fired through Asmir Begovic to open the scoring for Arsenal in the 52nd minute, Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe scored within five second-half minutes to turn the game on its head. Ryan Fraser found space in the box with five first half minutes remaining, only to be denied well by a Chambers block as the Gunners allowed an easy ball to come into the area from Ibe.

Bournemouth were perhaps quite unfortunate not to be awarded a penalty before the break as Iwobi looked to have moved his arm towards the ball from a corner. The Gunners had warnings prior to the goal, with Ibe and Fraser forcing stops from Petr Cech, but the Arsenal 'keeper then did poor as Eddie Howe's side made it 1-1.

Callum Wilson converted a ideal Ryan Fraser cross in the 70th minute, before the striker turned provider, controlling a long ball and teeing up Ibe to fire past Petr Cech.

Having won just one of their last five Premier League matches, Arsenal remain sixth with 39 points - five behind rivals Tottenham Hotspur in fifth.
