MAN OF THE MATCH: Jack Wilshere
- 9 - CHANCE! Lacazette puts in a cross from the right and finds Maitland-Niles in space. He composes himself and hits the bar from about 10 yards out!
- 36 - CHANCE! Welbeck is gifted a one-on-one with Begovic via a lovely Lacazette pass, but the 'keeper blocks it. It falls to Lacazette, who can shoot into an empty net if he shoots with his first touch... but he doesn't and loses possession. That's a huge chance to break the deadlock.
- 52 - GOAL! It's a lovely passing movement as Iwobi puts Bellerin clear through on goal. His shot hits Begovic, but creeps apologetically over the line!
- 70 - GOAL! Bournemouth are level! Fraser delievers a bullet of a cross from the left and Calum WIlson tucks it away with his first touch! 7
- 74 - GOAL! Smith finds Wilson in the box with a cross and he's given plenty of space by for Jordon Ibe, who strikes low past Cech! It's his first goal for Bournemouth in 52 outings.
