Bournemouth came from behind to record their first ever win over Arsenal on Sunday afternoon as the Gunners suffered a damaging 2-1 defeat at the Vitality Stadium.
Hector Bellerin fired the visitors into a 52nd-minute lead, but goals from Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe in the space of six minutes earned the Cherries an historic win.
Serving the final game of his three-match touchline ban, Arsene Wenger watched from the stands as his side lost crucial ground in the race for Champions League qualification.
Alex Iwobi exploited the space in Bournemouth’s left channel to release Bellerin, who decided to go it alone and squeezed a shot through the unfortunate Asmir Begovic.
Petr Cech is one clean sheet away from 200 in the Premier League but surrendered the opportunity to hit that landmark when he raced off his line but was beaten to Ryan Fraser’s cross by the outstretched left foot of Wilson, who directed the ball into the vacant net on 70 minutes.
The Cherries completed the turnaround soon after as Wilson held the ball up for Ibe to drill an 18-yard shot through Cech for his first Premier League goal for the club.
