Wenger struggles for answers after "very frustrating" Bournemouth loss

Wenger struggles for answers after

The result means the Gunners remain sixth on the table, five points behind Tottenham.

The visitors were missing two key players on the south coast, where a knee injury kept Mesut Ozil out of the team and Sanchez was omitted as he continues to be linked with a move to Manchester City or Manchester United.

Arsenal's lack of attacking threat is a bigger concern than team spirit for manager Arsene Wenger.

There were a couple of chances for either side in the opening exchanges, with Ainsley Maitland-Niles coming closest in the eighth minute - hitting the crossbar after a cross from Alexandre Lacazette fell to him.

Bournemouth had their second of the day soon afterwards when a long ball forward picked out Wilson in the Arsenal box.

The Gunners then had to wait until the 35th minute to threaten again, Begovic using his feet to deny Danny Welbeck one-on-one.

After a quiet start, the second half burst into life when Arsenal took the lead after 52 minutes, Hector Bellerin on target after Iwobi had put him through one-on-one with Begovic, who got a hand to the strike but could not stop it.

"There's no players who can get in the hall of fame in this side".

Bournemouth restored parity on 70 minutes as Callum Wilson turned home Ryan Fraser's cross to draw the hosts level, 1-1.

Four minutes later it was 2-1, Ibe running onto Wilson's lay-off and firing home a fierce strike to open his league account for the club.

The win provides the Cherries with some breathing room in an expansive relegation battle, with the three points moving them up to 13th, just four points above the drop zone.

"It was a hard-fought win", Bournemouth boss Howe told Sky Sports.

- The Cherries have won their first ever game against Arsenal in all competitions (D1 L5).

Ibe's goal was his first in the Premier League for Bournemouth.
