Arsenal vs Bournemouth Premier League Match Highlights

Alexis Sanchez returned to a mixed reception as Arsenal eased a tense Emirates Stadium with two first-half goals in a 3-0 Premier League win over Bournemouth.

Arsenal's nerves were settled by a goal within six minutes, the recalled Sead Kolasinac making the difference with an incisive run and cross on the left to tee up Welbeck for a close-range header.

Lacazette deservedly doubled the hosts' lead shortly before the half-hour mark with a cool finish high past Begovic from Welbeck's pass.

While Bournemouth were slightly fortunate to escape a penalty award as Adam Smith handled Ozil's volley, the visitors regrouped at the break and initially threatened as Jermain Defoe crashed a header against the post.

But Welbeck's 50th-minute goal - fired hard and low across Begovic from the left-hand side of the area - ensured Arsenal would cruise through the remainder of the second-half.

Ozil thrashed wide and Welbeck lifted a delicate right-footed just beyond the left-hand upright, with Wenger then introducing Sanchez from the bench 15 minutes from time.
