Reiss Nelson came off the bench to complete Arsenal’s 3-2 comeback win against Bournemouth at the Emirates Stadium yesterday.
Bournemouth got off to a dream start when Philip Billing’s strike after just 9.11 seconds broke the deadlock and shocked the Emirates. And things got even worse for the hosts just before the hour mark when Marcos Senesi was left all alone to head home from a corner to double Bournemouth’s advantage at 2-0.
Thomas Partey pulled one back for the gunners before Ben White leveled the score after being set up by substitute Reiss Nelson, who impressed. The game seemed to be headed for a draw until Reiss Nelson scored on a magnificent strike in the last minute of the game to steal the win for the Gunners.
Speaking after the game, Arteta was happy with the result, and Reiss Nelson “I always saw the potential, the talent, and the desire for him to do it, but he’s at a different level right now,” he said. “I think emotionally, the experiences that he had helped him.” Football-wise, it was my decision in the last two games not to play him because we had other options. He concluded.
