Arsenal set for inquest into Bournemouth blunders as Man City advantage emerges

Arsenal set for inquest into Bournemouth blunders as Man City advantage emerges

Reiss Nelson, who scored the winning goal, stated that Arsenal will review their errors during training on Monday and then travel to Portugal for their 38th match of the season on Thursday.

In contrast, Manchester City, who are competing with Arsenal for the title, have a few days off with no game scheduled this week. Nonetheless, Nelson emphasized that Mikel Arteta’s commitment to excellence will compel them to examine the two goals they allowed in their exciting 3-2 victory over Bournemouth.

“We are going to keep going, game by game, day by day,” he said. “We will watch the game back, see all the things we did wrong and put that right.” Arsenal fly on Wednesday to face Sporting Lisbon in Lisbon in the Europa League before visiting Fulham in the Premier League on Sunday.

“We have to go game after game,” said goalscorer Thomas Partey. After their win over Newcastle, City boss Pep Guardiola granted his players two days off.

“I don’t want to see them,” the Spaniard said of his stars. “They don’t want to see me. Two days to clear our minds because we have three decisive games in three different competitions in the Premier League, we have the Champions League and the FA Cup before the international break.”

Partey paid tribute to his fellow Ghanaian footballer Christian Atsu by dedicating his goal to him and displaying a T-shirt that read, “Rest Well Christian Atsu.”

Christian Atsu, a former midfielder who played for Newcastle, Bournemouth, and Chelsea, passed away at the age of 31 in the Turkey earthquake last month. Partey and Atsu were teammates on the Ghana national team, and Atsu was playing for the Turkish club Hatayspor at the time of his death.

The Arsenal star said of Atsu: “I wished to get the chance to dedicate this to him. We all saw that we have to believe and I believe that I dedicated the goal to him. At the end, I am happy, I wish him rest well in peace.”

Partey netted the opening goal as Arsenal made a comeback to defeat Bournemouth and retain their five-point lead in the Premier League. The Ghanaian midfielder signed for Arsenal in October 2020 for a fee of £45 million, having previously played three matches for Atletico Madrid before they went on to win La Liga without him. “I was pleased for them, but unfortunately, I didn’t get a medal,” he stated.
