Arsenal FC registered a 2-0 away win against AFC Bournemouth and revived their title hopes as they’re now ahead of the Citizens and at par with their local rivals Tottenham Hotspur FC on points, but behind on goal difference.
This was the Gunners’ second win this year out of a total of six Premier League games, and a much needed one indeed after they suffered a defeat at the Emirates against Chelsea in their last fixture. Arsenal FC have drawn three and lost one game so far this year.
Goals from Mesut Ozil and Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain secured three important points for the Gunners as they look to mount a successful title run this season.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to the Gunners’ win.
1 – Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain has scored his first ever Premier League goal away from home. Overdue.

We may be winning but we’re playing with half the intensity/ferocity of Leicester yesterday. Makes me very worried about next Sunday. #afc

Arsenal score their first goal in 328 minutes of Premier League action and only their fifth of 2016. pic.twitter.com/MqQhaIw6wc

Credit to Bournemouth as they’ve made a game of this having looked like they could capitulate. Arsenal just a step above in class though.
