The Gunners took the lead in the 27th minute when Gabriel Paulista headed home Mesut Ozil’s corner in north London as the Germany playmaker notched up his 16th Premier League assist of the season.
Ozil was in sublime form throughout the game and the World Cup winner made it 2-0 when he exchanged passes with Olivier Giroud and slotted home in the 63rd minute to wrap up victory for Arsene Wenger’s men.
The result was the perfect response to Arsenal’s shock 4-0 loss to Southampton at St Mary’s as the north London side got their Premier League title bid back on track.
Arsenal’s win over Bournemouth at Emirates Stadium inevitably prompted plenty of activity on Twitter – and here are some of our favourite updates from the game.
Magnificent Ozil !👏👏👏
