Alan Shearer reacts to Arsenal winning against Bournemouth today
Arsenal produced the most dramatics of wins against Bournemouth today as Reiss Nelson fired in late in the day to win the game.
Nelson produced his big moment in the 99th minute to send The Emirates into raptures and continue Arsenal’s pursuit of the Premier League title.
After Man City had won earlier in the day, the pressure seemed to have got too much for the Gunners as they found themselves behind twice against the Cherries. However, goals from Ben White and then Nelson’s dramatic winner ensured the Gunners kept their cushion at the top.
And reacting to the game for Premier League productions, Alan Shearer claimed The Emirates was like Arsenal had won the league.
“It gives the people within the football club the belief. But it gives the fans belief. You could see the reaction in The Emirates there of the fans, you’d think they’d won the league right there. It’s an unbelievable afternoon for them,” Shearer said.
Nelson will be the hero of the night but for Arsenal in general, Shearer is spot on. The whole stadium seemed to sense the significance of the result. And in the end, it might just turn out to be crucial.
