The Gunners are undergoing a similar run that derailed their title chances in previous seasons and Wenger must rally his troops together before it’s too late. They have also failed to score in the last three matches and their Sunday’s opponents Bournemouth are no pushover.

Eddie Howe’s Bournemouth are 15th in the Premier League table, 7 points clear off the relegation zone and judging by their current form they look all set to stay up this season. Their recent results clearly indicate that they are capable of mounting an upset on Sunday.

Bournemouth vs Arsenal : Form Comparison

Arsenal have only one win in the last five Premier League matches, while their away form has been terrible with only one win in the last six.

Bournemouth vs Arsenal Team Form Comparison EPL 7-Feb-2016 by LeagueLane
Bournemouth have only lost once in the last five matches and bagged a total of 8 points from possible 15. They have also managed to score at least one goal in the last four matches.

All eyes will be on the former Arsenal graduate Afobe, who scored three goals in the team’s last three league games.

Bournemouth vs Arsenal : Head-to-Head

The reverse fixture of this season at Emirates stadium ended in a 2-0 win for Arsenal inspired by a splendid performance from Mesut Ozil. The defeat put breaks on Bournemouth’s six match unbeaten run before the upset the likes on Chelsea and Manchester United on the way.

Bournemouth : Team News

Former Arsenal graduate Benik Afobe has scored in three consecutive matches for the Cherries since his arrival in January. Junior Stanislas and Tokelo Rantie are back from injury and we expect no changes to the team that started in the 2-1 away win against Crystal Palace on Tuesday night.

Bournemouth : Predicted Line-up (4-1-4-1)

Boruc – Daniels, Cook, Francis, Smith – Surman – Pugh, Arter, Gosling, Ritchie – Afobe.

Arsenal : Team News

Jack Wilshere, Santi Cazorla and Rosicky are sidelined for Arsenal due to their respective injuries.

While Francis Coquelin who came as a sub in the second half against Southampton could be ready to start. The new signing Mohamed Elneny is also pushing for a start in the center of the midfield.

Arsenal : Predicted Line-up (4-3-2-1)

Cech – Monreal, Koscielny, Mertesacker, Bellerin – Coquelin, Ramsey – Sanchez, Ozil, Walcott – Giroud.

Bournemouth vs Arsenal : Prediction

Arsenal must raise their performance to stand any chance of getting all points from this match. Finally the assists of Mesut Ozil has dried up and the Gunners need inspiration from somewhere else. The return of Alexis Sanchez from injury is a boost, but the Chilean is yet to hit the top gear.

Bournemouth on the other hand sit comfortable in defensive mode and look to launch quick counter attacks. And this will be an absolute cat and mouse game if Arsenal fail to find a goal as early as in the first half.

The Cherries have a good chance of mounting an upset here, but I believe Arsene Wenger’s boys have enough quality to see them through and my prediction for the night is a 2-1 win for Arsenal.

For those who bet, Arsenal or Draw (1x) will be a safe option.

  1. I expect some goals in this match following Arsenal’s last goalless draw. Bournemouth aren’t that easy to break down at home though.
