Twitter Reacts To Arsenal's 3-1 Victory Over Bournemouth

Alexis Sanchez at the double as Arsenal see off Bournemouth Alexis Sanchez scored twice as Arsenal ended their usual barren November run with victory over Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium on Sunday.

Arsenal were first to draw blood, Alexis pouncing on a badly underhit backpass to slot home the opening goal to settle any early nerves.

In the second period the Gunners dispatched Bournemouth with goals from Theo Walcott and Sanchez again.

Xhaka has started just five times for the club this season though, completing 90 minutes on just one occasion in the league despite the fact that fellow midfielder Santi Cazorla has largely been absent with an Achilles injury.

"Debuchy, he thinks its a severe one".

Sanchez gave Arsenal an early lead before Callum Wilson equalised with a penalty before the interval.

"Sanchez, even though he looks dead he is still alive".

"He has that gut conditioning that, when the ball comes to him again, he always finds that extra gear to be unsafe". How important it is, I don't know - we will not sort it tonight. Debuchy had just came to action after a long injury.

Bournemouth continued to cause problems and were adamant that they should have been awarded a second spot-kick late on as they desperately sought a leveller, but Sanchez broke the visitors' resolve for good in injury-time with his seventh goal in his past eight games.

Arsenal's form doesn't look too bad when you look at the results - a trio of draws to Paris Saint-Germain, Manchester United, and Tottenham Hotspur are hardly the end of the world - but when you look at how they've played in those matches things get a bit more concerning.

"When you see the heart he puts into his job, and the quality of his commitment, and you see how he is now in the dressing room, we are all devastated for him", Wenger told Sky Sports.

Among the players to feel his ire were Mohamed Elneny, who arrived at the club last winter, and summer signing, Granit Xhaka.

"Debuchy had many setbacks so I imagined something could happen to him when I picked the squad".

"I thought it was harsh on us today, I thought we were well in that game", he said.

The Swiss global was excellent today, particularly in the second half, as he broke up play with a number of tackles and instigated attacks with his superb range of passing skills while he also covered more ground than any other player during the game [12.24km].
