Without Sanchez, Arsenal loses 2-1 to Bournemouth in EPL

Alexis Sanchez has been linked with a move away from Arsenal this month

Missing from the squad altogether is forward Alexis Sanchez, who did not traveled with Arsenal for the game.

Arsenal have never lost to Bournemouth in their six meetings but know they'll have a challenge on their hands here, just like they experienced on the South Coast a year ago where they fought from 3-0 down to draw 3-3; the only time they've battled back from that deficit in a Premier League match.

Ryan Fraser and Ibe struggled to get into the game in the first half, with lone striker Wilson consequently left isolated up against the visitors' back three.

Hector Bellerin gave Arsenal the lead in the second half, before a four minute double from the Cherries gave them the win.

Arsenal return to action on Saturday with a Premier League home clash against Crystal Palace.

Bournemouth Team to play Arsenal: Begovic, Francis, Steve Cook, Ake, Adam Smith, Lewis Cook, Gosling, Daniels, Ibe, Fraser, Callum Wilson.

LeBron James called out of bounds on potentially game-winning possession
Overcoming a 20-0 run is rarely a recipe for success, but the Indiana Pacers had the right chefs in the kitchen on Friday night. The Raptors improved to a 15-2 at home despite playing Thursday without starters Kyle Lowry and Serge Ibaka .

But after Arsenal's opener Bournemouth mounted pressure and nearly restored parity through Ibe who fired a tame shot which was saved by Petr Cech.

"The fans were flat so we needed to get them back in the game and a goal against a big team got them on their feet and then we added a second".

The first half was summed up from an attacking point of view for Arsenal by Ainsley Maitland-Niles going closest.

The break came at the wrong time for the hosts who found themselves behind soon after when Bellerin - set free by a superb Iwobi ball - fired through Begovic's hand.

Arsenal's title hopes had effectively been over in 2017 but their latest loss seems to have sounded the death knell for their top-four hopes as the sixth-placed Gunners trail fourth-ranked Liverpool by five points.
