Arsenal 3-2 Bournemouth: Nelson nets last-gasp winner in Emirates thriller.

With a last-second goal from Reiss Nelson, Arsenal overcame a two-goal deficit to defeat mediocre Bournemouth and keep a five-point advantage atop the Premier League standings.

Mikel Arteta's team had to come back from a deficit because Manchester City had defeated Newcastle earlier in the day. Substitute Nelson's fine winner made it a remarkable 3-2 victory.

Philip Billing's second-fastest goal in Premier League history gave the struggling Cherries, who had only won away at Nottingham Forest and Wolves this season, an early advantage.

After the break, Marcos Senesi scored a header to double their lead before the Gunners eventually mounted a comeback.

Fit-again Before Ben White's first goal for Arsenal, which was also his first in 955 days, Thomas Partey pulled one back.

Nelson was active after Smith Rowe was replaced, and when a late corner was coming in his direction, he controlled the ball and produced a beautiful finish to give Arsenal the victory.
