In a thrilling Premier League match, Arsenal secured a dramatic 3-2 comeback win against Bournemouth and VAR at the Emirates Stadium.
Bournemouth took an early lead with a goal from Billing just nine seconds into the game and added to their lead with a header from Senesi early in the second half.
However, Arsenal responded with a tap-in from Partey, a volley from White, and a stunning left-footed half-volley from substitute Nelson in stoppage time to secure a crucial victory.
