Arsenal vs Bournemouth Premier League

The match is over.
Score: 5-1.

The midweek round of Premier League matches includes this intriguing encounter between top four chasing Arsenal and Bournemouth, who are one of the most unpredictable sides in the division.

Predictions

Arsenal are locked in a battle for a top four place between Chelsea and Manchester United that is likely to twist and turn throughout the rest of the Premier League season.

Unai Emery’s side are chasing a top four finish and they will be targeting three points against a Bournemouth side who blow hot and cold.

The Cherries have won just one of their last nine league matches and have lost six times in that run.

However, Eddie Howe’s side are not in relegation trouble and sit comfortably in mid-table, with 33 points from their 26 games to date.

The hosts will be favourites to win this game due to possessing home advantage, superior form and quality over Sporting.

The home side are favourites to win this game and it should be relatively comfortable – a 2-0 triumph for the North London side would appear a likely outcome from it.

Betting Tips

Bournemouth have lost eight consecutive matches on the road in the Premier League and they have failed to score in six of their last seven away from home. That run is unlikely to be halted here, and Arsenal keeping a clean sheet in victory is one of the best online betting odds of the round of fixtures. 888Sport have the Gunners to win to nil at 9/5.

Eleven of Arsenal’s victories this season have come having been being held at half-time. This game is likely to follow a similar pattern with Arsenal typically slow starters, although they should be able to get over the line in the second half. 888Sport have draw/Arsenal at 18/5.
