Arsenal fought back from 3-0 down to clinch a point away on Bournemouth on Tuesday to just about keep their Premier League title hopes alive.

However, it does mean that the Gunners drop to fifth in the Premier League table following victories for Manchester City and Tottenham, yet the latter’s win over league leaders Chelsea on Wednesday means that Wenger’s side are only eight points adrift of Antonio Conte’s men, and still just about in the title race.
Arsenal turn their attentions away from league matters this weekend though when they travel to Championship side Preston North End in the FA Cup, a competition the Gunners have won twice in the last three seasons, and 12 times overall.
Nonetheless, their draw at Bournemouth means that Wenger’s men have won just two of their last five Premier League matches, and more reinforcements may be needed in January if the Gunners are to sustain a title challenge in the second half of the season.
