Arsenal legend Ian Wright goes WILD as he celebrates Reiss Nelson's last gasp stunner as the Gunners pull off miraculous comeback from two goals down to beat Bournemouth 3-2 and stay five points clear at the top of the Premier League

Ian Wright launched into wild celebrations on Saturday after Arsenal's dramatic 97th-minute winner against Bournemouth.

Second-half substitute Reiss Nelson scored a spectacular half-volley with practically the last kick of the game, as Arsenal clung on to their five-point lead at the top of the Premier League.

It came after a dramatic match that saw the Cherries lead 2-0, their first goal was scored just nine seconds into the game, before eventually succumbing to an Arsenal side that has a knack for late goals.

Nelson made a huge impact off the bench, as he also assisted Ben White's equalizer with a well-placed cross.

In a video shared by Gary Lineker on Twitter, Wright jumps around in circles as he waves his arms around in jubilation at his former side's winner.

He screams for a full 20 seconds and waves Lineker away when asked for a few words on the goal.

The former striker's smile only ceases when someone jokes the strike is being checked for VAR, to which Wright replies 'no way!'

His ecstasy at the final whistle came in sharp contrast to when Bournemouth led by two goals, at which point Sportsmail columnist Danny Murphy claims Wright threatened to walk out.

There were other wild celebrations at the late goal, as even Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta was caught up in the delirium.

‘I started to run and didn’t know where I was running to,' he said. 'I saw a kid here next to me, then I ran into security. But just looking at the faces of everybody, the players and our supporters with those smiles, the joy in their eyes, it’s just great.

‘It was an extraordinary day, a beautiful experience at the end. Very dramatic, but worth living it, because it was a great end.’

When asked if it was the best moment he had experienced at the Emirates, Arteta replied: ‘Probably yes, the loudest and the most emotional moment we’ve had together. The journey we’ve been on, and how the supporters and players are together.'

It was the third time this season that Arsenal have scored a winning goal after the 90th minute, and the fourth time since the World Cup break that they have come back to win a match they were trailing.

The Gunners will next be in action against Fulham next Sunday.
