Bournemouth 2 Arsenal 1: Iwobi Struggles But Bags Assist; Ibe Scores First Cherries GoalJordon Ibe stunned Arsenal with his winner in a 2-1 comeback victory in for Bournemouth in a Premier League encounter at the Vitality Stadium on Sunday.

Alex Iwobi was named in the starting XI after going the distance for the Gunners against Chelsea last time out while
Jordon Ibe was equally deployed from the off for Bournemouth.

Mait-land Niles clipped the woodwork with a close-range curler, twisting in from the right channel only to see his effort go wide off the crossbar with eight minutes played.

Iwobi who forced Asmir Begovic into his first save of the afternoon inside the first ten minutes got lucky when the ball inadvertently hit his arm in the box amidst strong protests from the opposition six minutes to the break.

The Nigerian would then lay off a deft assist for Hector Bellerin seven minutes after the restart to blast Arsenal into the lead.

But Calum Wilson equalised for Cherries with 20 minutes left to play, the striker getting onto the end of Ryan Fraser's floated pass to stab past Peter Cech into the back of the net.

And Arsenal's hopes of finishing the campaign in the top four was further dealt a huge blow four minutes later when Ibe rattled in his debut Premier League goal for Bournemouth after good work by Wilson, leaving Arsene Wenger's side with pretty much to do to salvage their flagging season.

Alex Iwobi who had a relatively quiet game was replaced by Theo Walcott in the 76th minute while Jordon Ibe came off for Marc Pugh four minutes from time.
