The Cherries win was their first over us since the Premier League was created, and Sky Sports pundit Jamie Redknapp has labelled our team as the worst he has seen.
“You can say it’s the youngest, but I’d probably say it’s the worst Arsenal team I have seen,” he said.

“It was very disappointing today.
“They didn’t do enough for me, all around the pitch.
