BOURNEMOUTH -- Three quick thoughts on Bournemouth 2-1 Arsenal in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.

1. New low for Arsenal in desperate defeat

The day started with Arsene Wenger all-but confirming Alexis Sanchez was off, and things got worse from there. Whether the Chilean will be wearing red or blue for the remainder of the season is still to be decided, but that doesn't especially matter for Arsenal now, in the wake of another dispiriting defeat.

LONDON -- Three thoughts from Stamford Bridge on Chelsea's dramatic 2-1 over Bournemouth in the Carabao Cup.

1. Cup runs give Chelsea's season fresh meaning

Manchester City's historic run in the Premier League has done more than kill the title race before the turn of the year; it has sunk their rivals into varying levels of existential crisis.

Romelu Lukaku ends scoring drought as Man United edge past Bournemouth

Steve Nicol looks past Romelu Lukaku's game-winning goal and instead focuses on his 'horrendous' challenge on Bournemouth's Nathan Ake.

MANCHESTER -- Three thoughts on Man United's 1-0 win at home over Bournemouth on Wednesday evening.

1. Man United wrap up unconvincing win

One assumes that manager Jose Mourinho instructed his Manchester United players to celebrate this victory quietly and with the utmost respect. Indeed, anything beyond a few quick handshakes might have felt inappropriate for this thoroughly unconvincing 1-0 victory over Bournemouth, a game won by a first-half Romelu Lukaku header but with not much else to...

Is time running out for Eddie Howe at Bournemouth with status on line?

There was a submissiveness to Bournemouth's 1-0 defeat to Chelsea on Saturday. At times, the home crowd were as accepting of defeat as their team appeared to be. As Antonio Conte bellowed at his Chelsea team, his thigh-slapping rage was often the lone sound to be heard in the evening air.

Bournemouth fans have seen their team lose seven of their 10 league matches this season and are audibly losing heart.

In the bottom three since Aug. 26, the club's third season in the Premier League is proving...

Hazard's strike enough for turbulent Chelsea to earn win at Bournemouth

Eden Hazard provided the lone goal of the match to lead Chelsea's narrow victory over Bournemouth.

BOURNEMOUTH, England -- Three quick thoughts from Chelsea's 1-0 Premier League win at Bournemouth on Saturday.

1. Hazard strike enough for Chelsea

Eden Hazard likes playing Bournemouth, against whom he has scored five goals in five matches. Chelsea's Belgian wizard is not back to his best just yet as he recovers from a serious ankle injury, but his first Premier League goal since April, the last coming at the same location, took his club above Arsenal in the table and a single point behind...
