Venue: Vitality Stadium (Bournemouth)
Big things were expected from both teams, particularly Arsenal, in the summer, but it is safe to say things have not exactly gone according to plan.

New Arsenal Manager, Mikel Arteta takes charge of his first game with the club as he looks to move his new side into the top half of the Premier League Standings. He is the club’s third manager of the season following Unai Emery’s dismissal and Freddie Ljunberg’s less than convincing time at the club.

The Gunners currently occupy the 11th position on the EPL table and have won just one of their last 10 matches. Their last win before this poor run of form was coincidentally, a 1-0 win, against Bournemouth.

Bournemouth are four points behind the visitors, 14th on the log. Were it not for their strong start to the season, the Cherries would probably be battling relegation. They have won just one of their last seven games, a massive 1-0 defeat of fourth placed Chelsea.

In an unforgiving game for managers, Eddie Howe knows his team must start delivering results in order for him to avoid getting the sack.
At the half mark of the league season, both teams are nowhere near their aspirations for the start of the season. Getting a result in this fixture is crucial for both teams, hence expect an intense game with high levels of concentration from both sides.

Bournemouth vs Arsenal Team News

Last match-day, Bournemouth tried their best to avoid defeat at home against Burnley. All seemed to be going according to plan until the 89th minute when Jay Rodriguez powered a header into the net. It was a particularly poor display of attacking football and quality was in short supply. The game witnessed just five shots, with one, Rodriguez’s goal, on target.

Bournemouth have struggled for goals in recent weeks with just one recorded in their last six hours of football. They are also in really bad shape, losing six of their last seven matches and winning just two from their last thirteen.

Their home form is, well, nothing to write home about as they are currently on a three match losing streak in front of the Vitality Stadium crowd.

Arsenal kept their first clean sheet since October 6 and just their third clean sheet of the season in their last match against Everton. The match ended 0-0 and it was the second match in a row which the Gunners have failed to find the back of the net.

Star forward, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang was not particularly at his best and he has found the back of the net just once in his last four starts.
The Gunners have just one week from their last thirteen games and just three wins away from home all season. Hence, they are in for a tough night against struggling Bournemouth.

Bournemouth vs Arsenal Predictions

Both teams are frail defensively, so there’s a high chance there’ll be goals on from both sides.

This match is tough to call, but Arsenal will be particularly buoyed by the change in management. Bournemouth will be hyped, as they play in front of their home fans, but Arsenal are expected to grind out a result here.
