There were still more than 20 minutes remaining when Mesut Ozil slid down the gears, dropping into an amble as he strolled across to take a second-half set-piece for Arsenal.

The former Germany global turned provider as Arsenal made it 2-0 through Henrikh Mkhitaryan, but it was his goal that had Gunners legend Ian Wright purring, with the former striker impressed by the technique that he used to score.

"In the first half after we went 2-0 up, they gave us problems". Mkhitaryan then got his second assist minutes later when he played Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang clear through on goal, and the striker calmly rounded Boruc before slotting into an empty net for his 16th league goal of the season.

Arsenal made the flawless start when Ozil opened the scoring after four minutes with a lofted left-foot finish which Bournemouth keeper Artur Boruc could not prevent looping in.
