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

Alexis Sanchez, heavily linked with an exit from the Emirates, was left out of Arsenal's squad with manager Arsene Wenger saying before the game that a decision on his future was "imminent".

Eddie Howe praised Bournemouth's fighting spirit and "inner strength" after they came from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 on Sunday.

And the visitor's mood worsened at the Vitality Stadium as quickfire goals from Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe - his first for the club - overturned Hector Bellerin's 52nd-minute opener.

"I still don't know what is going to happen".

Mesut Ozil was also missing because of injury and Arsenal's lineup looked a shadow of the past teams under Wenger.


Alexandre Lacazette, a player who has been low on confidence of late started up top - and with Sanchez departing the Frenchman now has an even bigger onus on him to become Arsenal's main goal scorer, something he couldn't manage on the day. "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".

For the first time in the club's history, Chelsea has endured three successive goalless draws after an FA Cup stalemate at Norwich and a League Cup blank against Arsenal.

"They were focused and the attitude is one thing, but at that level it is a combination of quality and attitude, and today I question more the quality of what we have created, than the attitude of the players".

'We got them on their feet and they got behind us for the second goal'. With Liverpool smashing the "invincible" Man City side, we are now a massive 8 points behind the 2nd, 3rd and 4th placed teams, and with Tottenham's 4-0 win yesterday the Spuds are now 5 points clear of us in 5th. "We created chances to score but at the end the result was fair".
