Arsenal report: Mikel Arteta’s Gunners earn a point at Bournemouth

Mikel Arteta got his Arsenal reign off to a steady start as his side drew 1-1 away to Bournemouth on Boxing Day.

The Spanish tactician had brought in Mesut Ozil from the cold and his decision looked to have paid off, with Arsenal controlling possession and enjoying plenty of chances in the first half. However, a lapse of concentration at the back gifted Bournemouth the opener as Dan Gosling prodded home from close range after 35 minutes.

The goal gave Bournemouth the positive momentum for the remainder of the half, but it was Arsenal who looked brighter after the break. They were much better in the second half, taking fewer touches and moving the ball faster than they did before the break. And they were deservedly level in the 63rd minute when Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang finished off at the near post.

At 1-1, Arsenal couldn’t make their dominance pay as they wasted a flurry of chances, with Alexandre Lacazette guilty of missing one when put through on goal.

The Gunners appeared likely to score the winner but it was Bournemouth who then had the ball in the back of the net through Callum Wilson, only to see the goal disallowed for offside.
