Missing from the squad altogether is forward Alexis Sanchez, who did not traveled with Arsenal for the game.

Arsene Wenger is unhappy with Arsenal for falling to a "very frustrating" 2-1 defeat away at Premier League strugglers Bournemouth on Sunday.

Callum Wilson equalized in the 70th minute for Bournemouth before setting up Jordon Ibe for the victor in the 74th minute, intensifying Arsenal's problems in what could be developing into another crisis under Arsene Wenger.

Callum Wilson nicked in ahead of Petr Cech to score the equaliser in the 70th minute and four minutes later the stirker turned provider to set up Jordon Ibe for the victor.

Arsenal return to action on Saturday with a Premier League home clash against Crystal Palace.

"The fans were flat so we needed to get them back in the game and a goal against a big team got them on their feet and then we added a second".

It was Ibe's first league goal for Bournemouth.

But did anyone impress for Arsenal?

They may have trailed by just a single goal, but Arsenal had begun to take control of proceedings towards the end of the first half and were regularly exploiting gaps in the final third of the pitch, most notably behind left wing-back Charlie Daniels.

The break came at the wrong time for the hosts who found themselves behind soon after when Bellerin - set free by a superb Iwobi ball - fired through Begovic's hand. It seems inevitable that Sanchez will depart this month, leaving the team without its game-changer and top scorer from last season.

The victory lifted Bournemouth up into 13th place, while Arsenal remain five points adrift of Tottenham Hotspur in sixth.
