Arsenal vs. AFC Bournemouth - Football Match Report

The game against Bournemouth will be held on February 27.

Mesut Ozil scored and created another in the win.

The timing of the opening goal, scored inside four minutes by Mesut Ozil, particularly irked Howe after he had called his side "exciting" pre-game, and he said: "They were too good for us, it was a hard night. Today with our supporters here, we had a good atmosphere", Emery told the BBC.

Liverpool have proved the biggest thorn in Arsenal's side in terms of goals conceded, with the Reds chalking up 87 against the Gunners. We need to continue to play with this intensity.

"Sunday was a good challenge [for Ozil] to be on the bench and help us like he was doing in the last 30 minutes and I think we are stronger like that [when players are working for the team]". Keep it for 90 minutes.

The impressive Alex Iwobi was withdrawn with around 15 minutes of the game remaining and appeared to be clutching his calf, but Emery assuaged fears over his fitness.

Neil Lennon has been brought in on an interim basis as his replacement and will be assisted by John Kennedy and Damien Duff . Unfortunately, winning silverware season after season with Celtic doesn't appear to cut the mustard with Rodgers.

When asked about the Nigeria global, he said: "I hope it's only one knock and not a more important injury".

Shortly before Lacazette's opener, Nathan Redmond wasted a gilt-edged chance to put Southampton ahead and Saints boss Ralph Hasenhuttl felt that miss shaped the game.

"Everyone played like we want, and after the match on Thursday, playing today and Wednesday we needed different players because playing this intensity is not easy, and the performance like we want we need everybody", Emery said, quoted by Sky Sports.

'Now, I am going to watch this match for the analysis and I am going to watch Tottenham (losing at Chelsea) and after decide our game plan against them with every player, ' he added.

Alexandre Lacazette and Henrikh Mkhitaryan netted in the first half to fire Arsenal back into the top four.
