Arsenal’s incredible comeback against AFC Bournemouth could be looked back as one that won the Gunners a first Premier League title in 19 years.

Reiss Nelson scored the dramatic stoppage-time winner after Arsenal had fought from 2-0 down to triumph 3-2.

Alan Shearer doubts whether Nelson will score a more important goal, after it maintained Arsenal's five-point lead in the table.

"If Arsenal go on to win the title, this will be looked upon as one of the games that they did it," the Newcastle United legend said.

"Because it's moments like that, pieces of magic like that, that you've got to cling to, that you've got to hope to and you've got to do.

"You've just got to find something special, and for it to only be his fourth career goal [in the Premier League], he's only played 64 minutes this season, you couldn't write that script.

"No one has given him a mention all season, so for him then to come in and play a part as he has done now, it's just incredible."
