Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta in a post-match statement described his side’s 3-2 win over Bournemouth as “madness”.
The North London made a strong comeback from two goals down to beat the Cherries at the Emirate Stadium and maintained their five-point gap at the top of the table.
The game saw Phillip Billing and Marcos Senesi give Bournemouth a shocking 2-0 lead before Arsenal fought back through Thomas Partey, Ben White and Reiss Nelson.
“It was madness from the first second. We kept trying and dominating the game. We had a mountain to climb and we took it bit by bit.
“We had the hunger to go for the first goal. From then the atmosphere changed. Reiss Nelson hasn’t featured much because he has been injured. He comes on and puts in that performance. It was incredible to experience the emotion with the crowd. It’s going to stick with us,” Arteta told BBC MOTD.
Arsenal are favourite to emerge winners as they are currently seated at the top of the table with five points ahead of second-placed Man City.
