Arsenal beat Bournemouth 1-0 at the Emirates to move to third in the Premier League.
A first half goal from David Luiz was enough for the victory over Eddie Howe’s side, which moves the Gunners to third in the Premier League, just a point behind Manchester City who were beaten 2-0 by Wolves at the Etihad.
Bournemouth threatened an equaliser in the second half, with Callum Wilson and Dominic Solanke going close, but Luiz’s first goal for Arsenal was enough for the three points.
