Highlights

90+5'

It's over! It's a sensational three points for Bournemouthm who rise to 13th in the table.

The Gunners, meanwhile, have much thinking to do.

90+5' 

Bellerin tries to break down the right, but he is dispossesed and Bournemouth hoof it downfield.

90+3' 

Bournemouth win a corner and Afobe and Cook try to keep it in the corner of the field. It's game management time.

90+1' 

There will be four extra minutes.

90+1'

SUB: Afobe is on for Wilson.

90' 

A Ramsey cross is deflected to Xhaka on the edge of the box, who fires a powerful shot wide.

89' 

Ake clears a Bellerin cross. Arsenal are actually putting on the pressure now.

88' 

Maitland-Niles crosses into the box but Cook clears the danger.

88' 

Arsenal have plenty of possession, but aren't pushing quite as hard as one may expect for the equaliser.

86'

SUB: Pugh replaces Ibe.

84'

Mustafi feeds a ball throught to Walcott on the right, but the flag goes up.

82' 

Wilshere receives the ball on the edge of the box and shoots, but his effort is feeble and rolls wide.

77' 

Aresnal have looked average today, but one may not have expected them to fall apart to this extent. The momentum remains with the home side.

77'

SUB: Walcott replaces Iwobi.

74'

GOAL!

Borunemouth are ahead! Oh my!

Smith finds Wilson in the box with a cross and he's given plenty of space by for Jordon Ibe, who strikes low past Cech! It's his first goal for Bournemouth in 52 outings.

74'

SUB: Ramsey is on for Chambers as Wenger changes his team's shape.

72' 

Petr Cech came far off his line to try and claim Fraser's cross, but Wilson did very well to beat him to it. Like the Arsenal opener, that goal came from nowhere.

71'

Wilshere is booked for a foul on Ibe 35 yards form goal.

70'

GOAL!

Bournemouth are level! Fraser delievers a bullet of a cross from the left and Calum WIlson tucks it away with his first touch!

69' 

Wilshere picks out a Danny Welbeck run, but Cook is first to the ball.

Welbeck, who had beaten the offside trap, has not had a great afternoon.

68' 

Lacazette finds Iwobi in the box with a delightful ball over the top, but Cook intercepts with a world-class tackle!

67' 

CHANCE: Ibe beats Holding and cuts in from the right side of the area, but his shot does not trouble Cech.

66' 

Fraser shoots low from 25 yards and Cech easily collects. The Cherries are knkocking on the door for an equaliser here.

65' 

Francis does very well to deliver a cross from the right while falling over, but it narrowly fails to find Wilson waiting in the box.

63'

Daniels makes way for Mousset.

61' 

Cook brings down Bellerin on the right for a free kick. Xhaka swings it into the box from around 35 yards out and Wilshere tries to get a shot away in the melee. However, Bournemouth win a free kick as Daniels goes down.

59' 

Both players are back on their feet.

57'

Cook and Welbeck are both down after clashing. In the meantime, Bellerin is in some form right now...

57' 

Ibe's free kick floats into the box but is easily cleared.

56'

Xhaka sees yellow for bringing Ibe down from behind as he charged down the right.

Xhaka gonna Xhaka.

54' 

That was a superb box-to-box movement from Arsenal for the goal, with Holding and Wilshere connecting passes before Iwobi cut the Bournemouth defence in half that that through-ball.

52'

GOAL!

It's a lovely passing movement as Iwobi puts Bellerin clear through on goal. His shot hits Begovic, but creeps apologetically over the line!

52' 

'Welbeck' is trending on Twitter.. and the feedback is not terribly complimentary.

51' 

Fraser swings in a corner for Bournemouth, which Chambers clears as far as Gosling, who shoots high over the bar.

48' 

Ryan Fraser charges down the left like a tiny whippet, but Chambers does well to intercept.

48' 
47' 

No changes at the break, it seems.

Sorry, Theo, the 72nd minute isn't that far away.

46'

WE GO AGAIN!

Bournemouth get the party started. Here's to hoping for a little more meaningful action in the second 45.

45+1'

It's half-time. Arsenal had seven shots to Bournemouth's three - and had the best chances to break the deadlock. But Bournemouth will feel frustrated by their legitimate penalty claim.

44' 

The corner that resulted from Smith's shot saw Iwobi clearly strike the ball with his elbow. Kevin Friend had a clear view for what looked like a stonewall penalty. Eddie Howe will not be happy.

42' 

Fraser has a pot-shot from outside the area that flies over the bar!

41'

CHANCE!

Ibe charges down the right and delivers a great ball into the box. It falls to Smith, who sees his shot deflected for a corner.

38' 

This is not a classic Premier League encounter by any means. Wilshere is the best player on the pitch right now - he's lovely to watch in action.

37' 

Welbeck and Lacazette really should have done better with the brace of chances they created there.

36'

CHANCE!

Welbeck is gifted a one-on-one with Begovic via a lovely Lacazette pass, but the 'keeper blocks it. It falls to Lacazette, who can shoot into an empty net if he shoots with his first touch... but he doesn't and loses possession.

That's a huge chance to break the deadlock.

34' 

Maitland-Niles makes a surging run down the left and cuts into the box. Cook does well to force the ball out of play for a goal kick.

33' 

There are chants of "CHEAT!" aimed at Welbeck as he runs the ball out of play at the touchline. Dean Court thinks he went down a little too easy for that booking.

32' 

Francis is half way to getting sent off - just like he was in the 3-3 draw here last season.

31'

Francis is booked for impeding a Welbeck run down the left.

31' 

Holding is penalised for a high challenge on Fraser. Free kick in the middle of the park! (That's about as exciting as the action has been in th epast few minutes.)

29' 

Wilshere finds Iwobi on the right edge of the area in space. His low cross looks for Welbeck, but there's too much pace on it.

28' 

The pace has slowed and it's a little scrappy out there at the moment. Cech launches one long to Lacazette, whose glancing header goes to the feet of Begovic.

26' 

Wilshere has had a good game so far, conducting the action outside the box.

23' 

Wilshere tenaciously charges through the area and shoots fromt he edge of the six-yard box. It's deflected for a corner.

21'

Dan Gosling is booked for simulation after a Mustafi challenge. Upon replay, it seems very harsh.

20' 

Holding tries to play the ball out of the back but Ibe pressures him into sideways movement all across the back line. It's an awkward moment for the defender, who probably should have hoofed it at somne point before it went out for a throw.

18' 

Arsenal have had 61% possession thus far. Monsieur Wenger and Herr Lehmann look pensive in the stands.

17' 

Iwobi shoots from outside the box and it's deflected into Lacazette's path. The Frenchman tries to turn in a shot with an angle on the right but he can't quite do it.

16' 

Wilson breaks down the right and delivers a cross, but Chambers stretched to intercept in the box. That's better from Bournemouth.

14' 

Maitland-Niles plays a suicide pass at the back which is intercepted by Ibe! He charges forward and it's one-on-one, but the Bournemouth man loses possession to a poor touch. That's a wasted chance and a terrible Arsenal error.

13' 

Fraser sends in a set piece from distance, but Cech easily collects. Arsenal immediately break with numbers! Maitland-Niles crosses and finds Lacazette's head - it's tipped away for another corner.

10' 

Xhaka's corner is cleared by Ake.

10' 

Arsenal have settled down now. Iwobi has a pot shot from distance, which Begovic paws away for a corner.

9'

CHANCE!

Lacazette puts in a cross from the right and finds Maitland-Niles in space. He composes himself and hits the bar from about 10 yards out!

7' 

Wilshere puts a ball over the top for Lacazette in the box, but there's too much on it and Begovic collects.

7' 

Fraser, Wilson and Ibe perform some patient build-up work on the right side of the box, but Maitland-Niles ultimately intercepts and prevents a cross. Bournemouth look good so far.

4'

Adam Smith receives the ball on the edge of the box and shoots low and wide! Not a bad effort.

3' 

Chambers heads the ball clear on the right flank as Bournemouth win a series of throw-ins. The home side have had all of the ball so far.

1' 

Arsenal are in their natty blue away strip today.

Mustafi heads back to Cech to clear some early danger.

1'

AND WE'RE OFF!

Referee Kevin Friend gets the party started as Lacazette gets the ball rolling.

13.28 

It's the last game of Arsene Wenger's touchline ban today. He's in with the prolateriat today, rather then the journalists in the press box.

13.27 

This game sees the two longest-serving Premier League managers go head-to-head. Bournemouth must pull away from the relegation zone, while Arsenal must do better than the draw they managed at Dean Court last season - without star player Alexis Sanchez (and his glove-throwing antics).

The teams are out and kick-off is moments away!

13.25 

Bournemouth don't have a great recent record against the big boys...

13.20 

The stats suggest Arsenal will score - and that a header is a reasonable bet - but Alexandre Lacazette has failed to score in his last seven league outings. It's his longest scoreless streak since he went 10 games between February and May 2013 at Lyon.

13.15 

If they don't claim three points today, it will be the first time Arsenal have gone four games at the start of a calendar year without a win since 1995.

13.10 

Twenty minutes until the Jack Wilshere derby kicks off...

13.05 

Expect some aerial action today: Arsenal have scored nine headed goals this season (only Chelsea have scored more) and Bournemouth have conceded nine headers (the most of any team in the league).

13.00 

Bournemouth have faced Arsenal six times, managing five losses and last season's 3-3 draw. They have conceded at least twice in each meeting.

12.55 

Eddie Howe gets on the mic: "Last season's meeting was an incredible one to be part of. We showed two sides, our quality for 60-70 minutes and then theirs for the last 20.

"Hopefully this year, we're due a performance and then the result comes with it. But it's never easy, we're going to need to bring our A-game that's for sure. Hopefully we've built a bit of momentum in recent games, being unbeaten in four."

12.50 

Arsene Wenger on Sanchez: "He’s been vague at the moment, the situation is not completely decided one way or the other. I left him at home.”

12.45 

They should call him "Mr. 9%"

12.40 

Bournemouth are unbeaten in three but sit just one point abive the relegation zone. Arsenal, meanwhile have drawn three of their last four and can close the gap with the top four to two points with victory at Dean Court.

The last time these two teams met on the south coast, just over a year ago, it finished 3-3, with Arsenal coming back from 3-0 down in the last 20 minutes.

Let us hope for a stonker of that nature today.

12.36 

BOURNEMOUTH: Begovic, Francis, Aké, Steve Cook, Lewis Cook, Gosling, Smith, Daniels, Wilson, Ibe, Fraser. Subs: Boruc, Simpson, Surman, Arter, Pugh, Modset, Afobe. /// ARSENAL: Cech; Chambers, Mustafi, Holding; Bellerin, Wilshere, Xhaka, Maitland-Niles; Iwobi, Welbeck; Lacazette. Subs: Ospina, Kolasinac, Mertsesacker, Elneny, Ramsey, Walcott, Nketiah.

12.34 

As expected, Alexis Sanchez does make make the Arsenal squad. While Alexis, Atom, Humber and his agent pow wow, Arsene Wenger starts a front three of Iwobi, Welbeck and Lacazette. It's the same starting XI as Wednesday, with Cech in for Ospina.

12.30
