Arsenal coast past Bournemouth but fans know bigger tests lay ahead

Arsenal striker Danny Welbeck celebrates scoring the opening goal with team-mates during the English Premier League football match between Arsenal and Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium in London

Super Eagles forward Alex Iwobi is already looking forward to Arsenal's next Premier League fixture as he praised his teammates for responding well to their 4-0 mauling away to Liverpool on match day 3 of the English Premier League.

Kolasinac was voted Arsenal.com's Player of the Month this week in recognition of his fine start in England, so hopefully today's display will serve as another reminder to Wenger that he really should be starting him as often as possible, especially in the big games.

The world cup victor has won 3 FA cups with Arsenal since joining in 2013 but has been far away from receiving a Premier League medal.

A Danny Welbeck double along with a goal from Alexandre Lacazette meant Eddie Howe's men remain without a point after four league fixtures.

Mesut Ozil spent the global break bickering with former-Arsenal-players-turned-pundits, calling them out for their criticism of the North Londoners and demanding they get behind Wenger's side.

Danny Welbeck is relishing the competition for places at Arsenal, with Alexandre Lacazette on board and Alexis Sanchez still at the club.

Mesut Ozil was next to test the former Chelsea goalkeeper, bending a free-kick towards the corner only for Begovic to push it clear.

Sirsa Dera search Day 2: Two illegal explosives factory sealed
Sirsa Deputy Commissioner Prabhjot Singh said 41 companies of paramilitary forces and four columns of the Army have been deployed. To which, the Court agreed and appointed retired District and Sessions Judge AKS Pawar to supervise the entire search operation.

The under-fire Arsenal manager was delighted with his players.

The sense of nervousness around the Emirates before kickoff was eased early on when Danny Welbeck opened the scoring in the sixth minute, and there was no evidence that the visitors might trouble a potentially brittle Arsenal side.

Granit Xhaka then followed up two minutes later with a curling effort that flew over after a strike from outside the box.

That fixture at Stamford Bridge will be the true measure of Arsenal's response to the low points from August; this was an afternoon on which it soon became clear they would not lose, and it was noticeable that Howe cast the fault firmly on his own team's shoulders rather than extolling the virtues of the home side.

"If you dip in levels you will get punished - we were not good. Normally we have a good rhythm".

Unfortunately for Bournemouth and their 3,000 travelling fans the ball hit the post.

Wenger, however, provided better news regarding Jack Wilshere after revealing that the England global is closing in on a return to action. When you only buy two players in a transfer window, it makes sense to play them.
