The Mistake Mikel Arteta Made Against Bournemouth Which Greatly Costed The Team

Arsenal registered one of the most exciting comebacks of the season after thrashing AFC Bournemouth 3-2 at the Emirates Stadium. The Gunners were surprised when the visitors took an early lead in the first minute through English star Philip Billing.

Mikel Arteta's men fought to get back in the game for the rest of the first 45 minutes but they had no luck in breaking Bournemouth's defense. They came into the second half looking back into the game but it was the visitors who were on the score sheet again.

Bournemouth found the back of the net for a second time after Marcos Senesi beat Aaron Ramsdale to put them on a high note. However, the two-goal lead from the visitors was not enough to secure a win after goals after the Gunners produced an outrageous comeback in the second half.

Thomas Partey pulled a goal back for the hosts in the 62nd before Ben White leveled the scores eight minutes later. The Gunners then scored a last-minute winner through English young forward Reiss Nelson to register a brilliant win in the game.

Arsenal was not that brilliant in the game and they seemed to struggle especially in the midfield. Mikel Arteta starred Fabio Vieira ahead of Granit Xhaka which resulted in the team struggling to get win the match.

He played with two attacks on midfielders lesson to the team having an imbalance in midfield which led to the side conceding the two goals. Mikel Arteta should have started with a central midfielder in the game and played with only one attacking midfielder.

This was the main cause for Arsenal's struggling in the game and they should have performed better if Arteta didn't start two attacking midfielders.
