Welbeck at the double for first time in league for Arsenal

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck celebrates scoring the opening goal with team-mates during the English Premier League football match between Arsenal and Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium in London

What was more significant though, was that the Gunners successfully bounced back from successive league defeats with Danny Welbeck's brace clinching a comfortable win against a Bournemouth side yet to pick up a point.

There is a simple truth in football that you can only beat the opponents in front of you.

Kolasinac, operating as a wing-back rather than in Wenger's back three, was causing problems for the Cherries defence and another marauding run culminated in Granit Xhaka stinging the palms of Begovic with a low drive.

Bournemouth were, as their manager Eddie Howe admitted afterwards, extremely poor and miles short of the verve that has characterised their rise to Premier League stability.

The England worldwide also laid on Alexandre Lacazette's strike as the Gunners got their Premier League campaign back on track.

Hector Bellerin has gone from one of the Premier League's best full-backs to struggling to get into the Arsenal team, Kevin Kilbane has claimed.

"Alexis Sanchez will win the fans back, and win them back very quickly", said Wenger.

Varun Thakur, father of victim, said "It is a clear case of murder, don't know what happened but I am sure its murder". However, expressing their anger over the incident, parents are sitting in protest at the police commissioner's office.

Mesut Ozil was next to test the former Chelsea goalkeeper, bending a free-kick towards the corner only for Begovic to push it clear.

A surprising stat from a player usually so influential, and even more so when Arsenal generally attacked well against weak opposition this afternoon.

The home side took just four minutes to take the lead after a well-weighted cross from Sead Kolasinac found Danny Welbeck who headed home to give his team an early lead. "He will win the fans back, and win them back very quickly".

The Chile forward is out of contract at the end of the season and can walk away from the Emirates Stadium for free.

It might be easier to shine against a passive Bournemouth than at a throbbing Anfield, but that is hardly the point.

On reflection, the ball appeared to slow after Welbeck's effort, giving rise to the suggestion that it had already "popped" before it reached Lacazette.

DID a burst ball cost Alexandre Lacazette his first chance to put Arsenal 2-0 ahead against Bournemouth. Two new signings mystifyingly omitted on Merseyside, Lacazette and Kolasinac, were recalled along with Shkodran Mustafi, the latter having seemed surplus to requirements before the transfer window closed.
