Arsenal vs Bournemouth
England – Premier League
Date: Wednesday, 27th February 2019
Kick-off at 19.45 UK/ 20.45 CET
Venue: Emirates Stadium (London).
This Premier League edition is turning out to be one of the best we have had in so many years. The battle right at the top between Liverpool and Manchester City for the title, the race between yesteryear’s stalwarts for Champions League qualification, the emergence of new powers in the block, like Wolves, Watford etc. – all in all, the competition is doing justice to its tag of the best league in the world.
Here we have Arsenal holding on to the fourth spot, with Chelsea and Manchester United giving the fight of their lives for it. With just eleven rounds remaining, it’s safe to say that the tournament has entered its most exciting phase. Bournemouth looks slightly out of breath after the consistent performance they displayed in the first half of the season. Being on the road might cause them a major hindrance, but they might fancy their chances against Unai Emery, who is still trying to find his footing amongst the Gunners.

The Gunners won five of their last eight games, while one of the three winless fixtures in the stretch, came in the Europa League, and the other two were against both the Manchester clubs.
