“Arsenal stages epic comeback against Bournemouth: Nabs 3-2 win with stoppage time goal by Reiss Nelson”

Arsenal’s Last-Gasp comeback against Bournemouth

Arsenal clinched a dramatic 3-2 victory against Bournemouth on Sunday, recovering from a two-goal deficit to snatch the win away from their opponents. The match featured a nerve-wracking finish, with Reiss Nelson scoring the winner in stoppage time.

The Gunners had a shaky performance in the first half and paid the price when Bournemouth’s Dan Gosling opened the scoring in the 35th minute. In the 45th minute, Bournemouth doubled their lead when Jefferson Lerma headed in from close range.

However, Arsenal rallied in the second half and reduced the deficit in the 61st minute when Nicolas Pepe scored a stunning free-kick. The Gunners equalized just six minutes later when Bukayo Saka’s cross deflected off a Bournemouth defender and found the back of the net.

Both teams pressed for a winner, and it was Arsenal who emerged victorious in the dying seconds of the match. Nelson scored a brilliant goal, cutting in from the right and curling a shot into the top corner to secure the win for the Gunners.

The victory marked Arsenal’s fourth consecutive win in all competitions, propelling them up to the 9th position on the Premier League table. However, the triumph was marred by an injury sustained by Leandro Trossard, who limped off the field in the second half, adding to Arsenal’s injury woes.

Despite the injury setback, Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta hailed his team’s fighting spirit and expressed his delight at the outcome of the match. “We showed character and resilience to come back from two goals down. It’s an important win for us, and I’m proud of the players,” he said.

The Gunners will face Olympiacos in the Europa League on Thursday before taking on West Ham United in the Premier League next Sunday.
