Arsenal ease pressure on Wenger, beat Bournemouth 3-0

Arsenal coach Arsene Wenger on Thursday said the club was close to roping in highly rated French footballer Kylian Mbappe previous year.

Arsenal have won their last 23 Premier League home matches against sides in the relegation zone since drawing 4-4 with Spurs in October 2008.

With four games played, Bournemouth have collected 0 points from a possible 16. Next up would be Chelsea at Stamford Bridge and although an away clash with the reigning EPL champions does not sound appetising we should remember that Arsenal have well and truly put to one side the terrible record we had against them for years.

Arsenal should be capable to deal with AFC Bournemouth easily.

The Gunners finished fifth and won the FA Cup last season under Wenger.

"That's football - Liverpool lost heavily today", he said, referencing the Reds' 5-0 reverse at Manchester City.

In the last week, La Liga president Javier Tebas has raised further question about the huge amounts of money being spent in the transfer window, accusing PSG and Manchester City of financial doping.

"Alexis Sanchez is very focused on the Premier League and the Europa League and he wants to do well", Wenger told the BBC.

They have conceded an average of 1.43 goals per league game in 2017, their highest rate in a calendar year since 1965.

Still, AFC Bournemouth will be without a couple of players, most notably Stanislas, Francis, and Wilson. Not before Christmas, that's why I didn't involve him in the Europa League, but overall I hope that after Christmas he will be available.

And Howe was blunt in his assessment of the display, acknowledging that Bournemouth must improve as they face a potential relegation battle.

Although Wenger was an early advocate of UEFA taking action to discourage reckless spending, he believes the rules have already become obsolete. In the last round's clash with Watford, Brighton had one player more for most of the match as Watford's left back, Miguel Britos received a red card in the 26 minute of the game.

"You need to start the game well and stay in the game, it doesn't matter what run of form you're in- you can't give yourself too much to do". Alexis Sanchez was called "fatter than normal" by one of the Chile coaches during the global break and he will be back after a long flight from South America.
