Arsenal strike late to complete heroic comeback keeping title dream alive – Full time Arsenal 3-2 Bournemouth

Reiss Nelson scored a stunning 97th-minute winner as Premier League leaders Arsenal came from two goals down to beat Bournemouth.

Philip Billing gave Bournemouth the lead after just 9.11 seconds, and Marcos Senesi’s header gave them a 2-0 advantage. Before Nelson scored, Thomas Partey and Ben White for Arsenal had evened the score. In the seventh minute of stoppage time, the winger, playing for the first time since November 12th, crashed in from 25 yards.

After it appeared as though they might lose ground to Manchester City, who defeated Newcastle in the early kickoff, Arsenal’s advantage in the Premier League has been restored to five points. While Bournemouth threatened a massive upset and started out quickly, they nevertheless find themselves in the relegation zone.

Billing’s goal was the second-fastest in Premier League history; Shane Long’s goal for Southampton against Watford in April 2019 took just 7.69 seconds to score.

Before being brought on as a second-half substitute here by Mikel Arteta, Nelson had only played 64 minutes of Premier League football this season due to thigh issues. Prior to that, Nelson almost had his first Premier League touch of 2023 when he assisted White on his first Arsenal goal to tie the score.
