Arsene Wenger says mistakes from his team were to blame for Arsenal's 2-1 defeat to Bournemouth.

Eddie Howe praised Bournemouth's fighting spirit and "inner strength" after they came from behind to beat Arsenal 2-1 on Sunday.

After Hector Bellerin fired through Asmir Begovic to open the scoring for the Gunners early in the second half, Callum Wilson and Jordon Ibe scored within five second-half minutes to turn the game on its head.

Bournemouth had their second of the day soon afterwards when a long ball forward picked out Wilson in the Arsenal box.

Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal were very lacklustre in the 2-1 defeat to AFC Bournemouth and that if Alexis Sanchez leaves the club must find a replacement.

Wenger admitted on Friday that Sanchez would not be signing a new deal, paving the way for him to leave the club in the current transfer window, adding that a bidding war could help Arsenal.

Arsenal's attack sputtered at Bournemouth on Sunday.

After falling behind, Arsenal looked bereft of ideas, with Mesut Ozil also missing - another player who could soon be departing the Emirates Stadium with his contract expiring at the end of the season. Overall we have to look at it in a very objective and harsh way we made mistakes we should not have made. 'We need points against whoever we play and we know those three points take us a bit further away from the bottom three. "We suffered a lot in the first half and at the start of the second half", Conte said.

"It's a fantastic win because we need to pick up our home form", man-of-the-match Wilson told Sky Sports.

"They were focused and the attitude is one thing, but at that level it is a combination of quality and attitude, and today I question more the quality of what we have created, than the attitude of the players".
