Egypt international Mohamed Elneny played the full 90 minutes, as Arsenal secured an important three points against Bournemouth in the English Premier League.

Arsenal secured important three points, to boost their title chances and close the gap on Liverpool, Manchester City, and league leaders Chelsea.

Arsenal’s starting XI: Cech; Debuchy, Mustafi, Koscienly, Monreal; Elneny, Xhaka, Ozil; Chamberlin, Walcott, Sanchez.

Bournemouth’s starting XI: Fedreci; Francis, Cook, Ake, Smith; Arter, Gosling, Smith, King, Stanislas; Wilson.

The Gunners started the game perfectly, in terms of passing, pressing and dominating, and their hard work paid off, as Alexis Sanchez scored Arsenal’s first goal in the 12th minute.

The game was going well for the Gunners, until Monreal conceded a penalty, which saw Callum Wilson score the equaliser in the 23rd minute.

Arsenal kept on pushing forward for the second goal and they soon had it when Theo Walcott converted Nacho Monreal’s cross into the net in the 53rd minute.

In the dying moments of the game, Alexis Sanchez scored Arsenal’s third goal of the game after converting Giroud’s cross, who had received a great pass from Mesut Özil, to make it 3-1 for the Gunners.

It’s worth mentioning that Elneny played a great role in Arsenal’s win against the Cherries today, as he dominated the midfield by his defensive and offensive contribution.
