A dramatic comeback against Bournemouth last night ensured Arsenal avoided a third consecutive defeat on the road in the Premier League but dropping two points opens the door for Chelsea or Tottenham Hotspur to take advantage this evening.
Trailing by three goals in the second-half, Arsenal fought back valiantly to secure a 3-3 draw and two of their goals came from a familiar opening- as the Gunners once again displayed their worth in the air.

Both Alexis Sanchez and Olivier Giroud scored via headed goals last night and it sees Arsenal lead the charts for the most headers scored since the start of the 2013/14 Premier League season, with a whopping 46.
Considering Arsenal pride themselves on slick build-up play and the Gunners have been criticised for trying to score the perfect goal at times, the stat shows Arsene Wenger’s side should not be afraid to put the ball into the box.
With Olivier Giroud in the middle, there’s always a chance for Arsenal to find an opening.
