Arsenal vs Bournemouth Prediction

In all honesty, Unai Emery’s men are yet to hit the ground running in the Premier League. Despite bringing in reinforcements to spice up both attack and defense, the squad have managed just three wins from their last seven games and garnered no more than twelve points from a possible twenty-one.

Their last clash on the road saw them hold rivals Manchester United to a 1-1 draw while at home, they had to fight back from behind with ten men to pick up a 3-2 victory against Aston Villa.

Bournemouth are unbeaten in their previous three matches in the top flight, the last of which against West Ham, as they salvaged no more than a point with both teams scoring two goals apiece. The visitors have been faring well in their outings too, admitting defeat in just one of their previous three.

Be that as it may, it needs saying that the away side have not been faring well in their past visits to this venue, and have been at the losing end in each of their last four meetings. Taking into account that the Gunners will also be welcoming the guests on the back of a whopping 4-0 victory over Standard Liege in the Europa League, the win is more than likely to swing in favor of Arsenal at the end of the ninety minutes.

Furthermore, the hosts have been a nervous bunch in the final third. And are yet to keep a clean sheet in the premier league. Their counterparts for the weekend have been clinical in front of goal in their respective trips on the road, scoring six from their last three.

Given that half of their last four head to head matchups here have also seen goals down each end, expect both teams to get their names on the scoresheet in this one.
