Arsenal came back from 3-0 down away at Bournemouth in the Premier League on Tuesday night, the first time they have taken anything away from a PL game having been three down.
Although the last twenty minutes showed a side of Arsenal many have not seen in seasons gone by, the first 70 were all too familiar and equally worrying.
The Cherries were excellent, let’s get that straight. But some of the decision making from the visitors was woeful – see Hector Bellerin’s positioning for Charlie Daniels’ opener.
The draw leaves Arsene Wenger’s side nine points adrift of leaders Chelsea, who are yet to play in this round of fixtures and face north London rivals, Tottenham, this evening.
Whilst coming back from such a deficit is obviously positive, the final score will not have please many that headed down to the south coast, none more so than the Gunners talisman, Alexis Sanchez, who was visibly angry at the full time whistle…
Sanchez absolutely fuming at full-time last night. Bet a few changing room selfies were had by other players though.pic.twitter.com/sw6UYHGbws

The Chilean’s reaction prompted many to take to social media and have a say on the situation, and there were some contrasting reactions…

The reaction of Sanchez last night shows reason why building a ‘team’ is so important. #LFC had it with Suarez. One man too important.

If I was an Arse fan, I’d be more impressed w/ Sanchez’ reaction after #BOUARS, rather than Giroud’s celebration. Sanchez WANTS to win.

Alexis Sanchez’s work rate, attitude,
and reaction after the draw is absolutely brilliant to see. True competitor.
