Game Report

Highlights

Encouraging performance but not the result Mikel Arteta would've wanted in his first game in charge of Arsenal. The Gunners dominated large parts of the game but were forced to come from behind to earn a draw.

Detail

Arsenal dominated the ball in the first half and looked capable of creating chances but there were still unwanted glimpses of their old defensive frailties. Ryan Fraser got in behind early on and was denied by a good block.

Granit Xhaka and Lucas Torreira marshalled the midfield well - allowing Mesut Ozil the freedom to play. The German set up a good opportunity for Alexandre Lacazette which was wasted.

The Gunners were punished for their only real mistake of the opening period when trying to play out from the back. Bournemouth reclaimed possession high up the pitch and Dan Gosling finished off a sweeping break.

Arsenal showed no signs of panic and continued to probe for openings in the second half. They eventually got some deserved luck when Reiss Nelson's deflected shot went into the path of Aubameyang to divert in.

The visitors had the best chances to win the game but needed better finishing. Lacazette and Joe Willock were both not ruthless or decisive enough after being played through.

Summary

Bournemouth will probably be the happier of the two sides with a draw which they had to battle for. Arsenal played some progressive football at times but just lacked the overall cutting edge in the final third.
