Arsenal vs Bournemouth preview

The Gunners have been emphatic since going four games without a win earlier this month.

After a late 4-2 win over Aston Villa, Mikel Arteta’s side have won 1-0 at Leicester before backing it up with a thumping 4-0 win against Everton in midweek.

The clean sheets will have pleased the Arsenal boss as they kicked away from closest rivals Manchester City by five points again.

Gabriel Martinelli has three goals in the space of a few days and looks reborn again after a mid-season dip in form, taking the place of Eddie Nketiah.

Bournemouth were soundly beaten by Manchester City last weekend after a couple of promising results in the draw at Newcastle and huge win at Wolves.

But the City game and this one will prove a stern test for Gary O’Neil’s men who sit second bottom and a point from safety at present.

Arsenal have won five of the last six meetings between the sides (a draw being the other one).

Bournemouth have never beaten their opponents at the Emirates, with a home win in 2018 their only top flight win against the high flyers.

Team News

Jorginho was forced off at half time due to illness in midweek so is a minor doubt for the weekend, though Thomas Partey could have come in anyway.

Eddie Nketiah has been carrying a knock and limped off at full time but again could feature this weekend.

Some of the fringe players may have to wait until the midweek Europa League game to see minutes.

Junior Stanislas, Marcus Tavernier and Matias Vina all missed last weekend and their involvement is in doubt again.

SunSport Tips

Arsenal to score 4+ goals – 11/4 with Sky Bet – CLAIM HERE

Arsenal are back going great guns at the minute and this fixture should only help that.

They’ve scored four times in two of the last three games and we fancy them to do so again here.

City managed four away at Bournemouth last week so chances will be made available.

To get almost 3/1 on 4+ seems a bit of value in comparison to the outright odds.
