Arsenal’s fourth straight league victory keeps their five-point lead over Manchester City intact.
Keys said after the game:
‘I’ve no problem with this because that’s a dramatic way to win a football match. I would ask about the time of the goal as 97 minutes had been played.’
‘I think Bournemouth will have reason to think, “where did you find that time?” The referee will have a reason.’
‘It was a dramatic afternoon and this is developing, for me, into an Arsenal season and they keep passing every test that they have been set.’
