Arteta Describes Arsenal's Late Win Against Bournemouth As 'Madness'

Following Arsenal's late win against Bournemouth, head coach Mikel Arteta has described his team's victory as "madness."

The Gunners fought back from 2-0 down to complete a 3-2 comeback at the Emirates.

Thomas Partey and Ben White found the back of the net to pull Arsenal back on level terms but Reiss Nelson was the hero of North London as his 97th-minute strike prevented the league leaders from sharing the spoils and restored their five-point lead over reigning champions Manchester City.

"It was madness from the first second," Arteta said.

"We kept trying and dominating the game. 

"We had a mountain to climb and we took it bit by bit.

"We had the hunger to go for the first goal. From then the atmosphere changed." 

The Gunners boss also lauded Nelson, who made his first appearance since November 12, for scoring the match winner and providing the assist for White to level the game.

"Reiss Nelson hasn’t featured much because he has been injured.

"He comes on and puts in that performance. I'm so happy for him.

"It was incredible to experience the emotion with the crowd. It's going to stick with us."

He added: "I am going to remember this day for a few things. 

"I loved the initiative, the courage, their personality and the way they made things happen.

"When its ugly and when its difficult, that’s what big teams do. 

"We have to make it easier for ourselves. But this is the Premier League.

"The opponents are good and they make it hard for you. 

"Now we have the Europa League – many games coming up. We’re going to need everyone at their best."
