Alexis Sanchez returned to a mixed reception as Arsenal eased a tense Emirates Stadium with two first-half goals in a 3-0 Premier League win over Bournemouth.
Sanchez was back on club duty, having seen his push for a move to Manchester City fall flat before the transfer deadline amid a miserable international break with Chile, and made way for Alexandre Lacazette in the starting XI, before emerging to a mixture of cheers and jeers in the second period.
A 4-0 thrashing at Liverpool a fortnight previously and uncertainty over Sanchez’s situation had seen Arsene Wenger come under pressure just months into a new two-year contract, but his players rediscovered their groove to comfortably dispatch Eddie Howe’s strugglers.
Danny Welbeck nodded in with Arsenal’s first attack and laid on a second for Lacazette, before finishing again himself after the break.
