ARSENAL 5-1 BOURNEMOUTH

The hosts broke the deadlock after just four minutes when the recalled Mesut Ozil slammed home his fifth goal of the season.

Sead Kolasinac played the German in and he clipped the ball over the onrushing Artur Boruc.

Henrikh Mkhitaryan doubled Arsenal’s advantage in the 27th minute after some brilliant link-up play with Ozil.

But Bournemouth pulled a goal back on the half-hour mark when Lys Mousset fired in after Dan Gosling had taken the ball from Matteo Guendouzi.

Shortly after Ozil had hit the woodwork, Arsenal made it 4-1 through Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

A free-kick from substitute Alexandre Lacazette put Arsenal 5-1 up 12 minutes before the end.

Southampton forward Charlie Austin put the ball in the net in the early stages, nodding home from close range, but it was disallowed after he was adjudged to have barged Fulham goalkeeper Sergio Rico.

However, the hosts did go ahead in the 23rdminute when Oriel Romeu drove home from the edge of the box after keeper Rico punched away a right-wing corner.

James Ward-Prowse put Southampton 2-0 up in the 41st minute.

Nathan Redmond’s shot from the edge of the box was kept out by Rico but Ward-Prowse was alert to tap home the rebound.
