Henrikh Mkhitaryan Opens Up About Arsenal's Top Four Return

The win will be big in their attempt to keep pace with Tottenham Hotspur, who now sit seven points ahead of them in third place in the Premier League.

Bournemouth, who remain without an away win since they beat Fulham 3-0 at Craven Cottage on October 27, stay in 12th in the table.

"We are not looking at the table at the moment because we still have lots of games to play", he said.

Arsenal have released their line-up that will tackle Bournemouth Wednesday night in the Premier League fixture at the Emirates stadium. In the first half we played very well but we wanted to carry on in the second, but it's not easy 90 minutes with this intensity.

With all those changes in personnel, and formation, perhaps it was unsurprising that it was Southampton who started the brighter.

Southampton started with the same vigour from their shock win over Arsenal back in December and could have led inside five minutes when Nathan Redmond did excellently to beat the offside trap and cut inside, but his shot was blocked by Leno's legs.

The hosts took the lead after six minutes in weird circumstances, Lacazette neatly back-heeling home a pass from Mkhitaryan while the rest of the Arsenal team were still appealing for a penalty after Lucas Torreira took a tumble.

His deflected ball found a way through to Mkhitaryan who doubled the lead with an unerring finish.

Emery refused to get carried away by Arsenal being back in the top four as he turned his attentions to the next Premier League match. Here are the player ratings from the 5-1 win.

'When I ask Nacho Monreal & Send Kolasinac who is the player who you feel better on the pitch when he is playing, they say to us: Iwobi, ' revealed Emery ahead of Wednesday's match against Bournemouth.
