Sanchez missing as Arsenal slip to defeat at Bournemouth


Arsenal lost further ground on the top four in the English Premier League (EPL) on Sunday after struggling Bournemouth came from behind to beat them 2-1 at the Vitality Stadium.

Missing from the squad altogether is forward Alexis Sanchez, who did not traveled with Arsenal for the game. "We played a lot of effort against Arsenal on Wednesday, then to play a really good team in good physical form like Leicester was hard".

"I think his first choice or preferred choice would be to sit tight and do the deal with Manchester City", he said.

Their derby rivals Manchester United have also entered the race to sign Sanchez and are rumoured to be prepared to offer the South American more money.

The Frenchman said nothing hasn't been decided as yet, but is expecting more clarity very soon.

Arsenal Team to play Bournemouth: Cech, Chambers, Mustafi, Holding, Bellerin, Xhaka, Wilshere, Maitland-Niles, Iwobi, Welbeck, Lacazette.

But Arsene Wenger's decision to stick with the forward was not one that went down well with the Gunners faithful and his assist did little to appease the feelings of negativity towards the Nigerian-born 21-year-old.

Another away game goes by for the Arsenal without a victory which now means that they have won just three away games all season from their 12 which they have played in.

Arsenal broke the deadlock seven minutes after the restart.

Undeterred, Bournemouth levelled in the 70th minute, a brilliant Fraser pass to the edge of the penalty area allowing Wilson to steer a sharp, first-time finish past Cech, who had charged off his line. "A hugely disappointing result and performance from Arsenal".
